Product Liability

consumer safety is our priority

Defective consumer products range from the smallest child’s toy to vehicles. They can, and do, seriously injure and kill people. When a defective product causes harm, product liability laws allow the victim and their family to seek compensation for injuries or damages. Those who may be responsible for the injury include manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, retailers, or others.

The experienced product liability attorneys at Atlee Hall, LLP have handled many cases where a defective product was the cause and aggressively pursued justice and compensation for our clients. The types of defective product cases we have handled include:

  • Automobile products
  • Pharmaceutical products
  • Medical devices
  • Food products
  • Farming equipment
  • Children’s products

Many defective products covered by product liability law have been in the news over the past year. Toyota’s defective vehicles, defective infant cribs, and tainted food are just some of these.

In each case, it must be determined by a government agency, such as the Food and Drug Administration or US Consumer Product Safety Commission if that product should be recalled. Many defective drugs have been recalled, but many are still in use and are potentially dangerous to consumers.

If you have any questions about defective products and are anywhere in the state of Pennsylvania, please contact the Lancaster offices of the experienced product liability attorneys at Atlee Hall, LLP to schedule an initial consultation.

Common Questions for Defective Product Lawyers

What should I do if I’ve been injured by a product?

Before you consider altering the product or throwing it away, you should contact Atlee Hall, LLP. The faster you contact us, the sooner the experienced product liability lawyers at Atlee Hall, LLP can get to work on your case. It is important to keep the product in the exact condition it was in when the injury was caused. It is also important to keep in mind that a statute of limitations only offers a specific window of time to file a suit. The quicker we can get to work on your case, the better your chance of receiving full compensation.

What kind of damages can I sue for?

In defective product cases, you can seek both compensatory and punitive damages. Compensatory damages cover compensation for your losses, while punitive damages seek to make an example out of a company or manufacturer that acts in a willfully negligent way. When you are injured by a defective product, negligence on the part of the company who manufactured it is generally accidental, but some cases call for punitive damages to be sought as well.

What compensation am I entitled to?

Your compensation will depend on the extent of your damages. In most product liability cases you can sue for:

  • All related medical expenses
  • Ongoing medical care
  • Physical therapy
  • Cosmetic surgery
  • Loss of current and future income
  • Pain and suffering

Each case is unique, and only a product liability attorney with sufficient experience can determine what your damages are worth.

How do I know if I have a defective product case?

If you have been injured by a defective product, the best way to determine if you have a case is to contact Atlee Hall. We will listen to the details of your case, taking into account the nature of the product, the ways the product malfunctioned, and the injuries it has caused.
