Product Liability

Scranton, Pennsylvania Product Liability Attorneys

If you or your loved one has been injured as a result of a dangerous or defective product, your may be entitled to financial compensation for your damages. With our extensive experience serving Pennsylvania, our product liability attorneys have successfully represented many clients suffering the painful emotional and physical effects resulting from the negligence of product manufacturers.

While a legal suit does not undo the damage an unsafe product causes, we are committed to improving the lives of personal injury clients by ensuring they have the financial means of supporting themselves and their loved ones. At Caputo & Mariotti, we aggressively represent our clients and know how to “beat the odds” in most cases with thorough preparation, extensive legal experience, and legal skill.

During the process of bringing a product to market, every organization in the “supply chain” has a legal obligation to provide a reasonably safe product when it is used as intended. When someone is injured or dies as a result of a defective or hazardous product, anyone in the supply chain can be held legally liable for their actions. In order to receive compensation for a claim, it must be proven that:

  • The product had an “unreasonable dangerous” defect causing the injury, and that the defect happened as a result of a design flaw or problem in the manufacturing process, or because of damage occurring during shipping and handling.
  • The product’s defect caused the injury even though the product was used as intended.
  • The product causing the damage was not “substantially” changed from its original sales condition.

Product liability suits are generally “strict liability” claims allowing a person who suffers an injury from a defect or dangerous product to recover monetary compensation without proving manufacturer negligence. Other forms of product liability include negligence and breach of warranty of fitness. Each lawsuit type has its advantages and disadvantages.

If you believe you have a valid product liability claim, discussing your case with a personal injury lawyer is essential. You may be entitled to lost wages, medical expenses, and other financial compensation for your pain and suffering. If you are the survivor of someone who was killed by a defective product, you may be entitled to a wrongful death suit.
