Philadelphia Product Liability Lawyer
We live our lives surrounded by products designed, manufactured, and marketed by unseen corporations. The cars we drive, the toys our kids play with, the medicines and devices that our doctors use, even the food we eat – all make their way to market and contribute to our quality of life. Simultaneously, they are also sources of tremendous revenue for those who make and sell these products. Sometimes, however, a desire to increase profits may cause companies to cut corners and not take the proper care to ensure that their products won’t cause harm to the consumers who purchase and use them. Shortcuts or lack of property quality control can result in defective or dangerous products that injure and kill people.
At Wilk Law, we represent individuals in Philadelphia whose lives have been changed for the worse because of the negligence or reckless conduct of companies that allow dangerous and defective products into the consumer marketplace. Our Philadelphia product liability lawyers protect the rights and well-being of injured consumers, getting them the compensation they need and holding companies accountable for their greed, misconduct or carelessness.

What is “Product Liability”?
The term “product liability” refers to claims by consumers for injuries caused by unsafe or dangerous products. But the reality is, it isn’t the product that is responsible for the damage. Poor design, manufacturing flaws, and failure to come clean when the risk of harm arises is what gives weight to a product liability case.
That is why the law allows individuals who have been injured due to unsafe or dangerous products to file lawsuits against a number of parties who may be potentially responsible for those losses. This includes designers, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers which negligently produce, distribute, or sell defective or dangerous goods, all of whom may be held accountable if their acts or omissions resulted in harm.
Types of Product Liability Claims
The kinds of defects that can form the basis of a product liability claim include:
- Design Defects. Courts may evaluate whether a product could have been produced with a safer design without losing function and integrity.
- Manufacturing Defects. Even safely designed products can be defective if they are not manufactured correctly or according to specifications.
- Marketing Defects. These include the failure to warn consumers about preventable risks. Packaging and labeling mistakes are also commonly featured in marketing defect product liability claims.
