Pennsylvania’s Strict Liability Law Applies to Your Case
If a defective or faulty product was a substantial factor in your injury, you may have grounds to file a product liability lawsuit in Pennsylvania. Your injury is eligible if:
- The product lacked instructions or a safety warning about potential risks.
- The product contained an unsafe feature.
- The product was missing a feature that would’ve made it safe for consumption or use.
“Strict liability” law applies to cases in Pennsylvania. What this means is that you don’t need to prove that your personal injury was caused by someone else’s negligence. Instead, you need to show that a defect existed and that it directly led to bodily harm. Anyone in the chain of distribution may be liable, from retailers and distributors to wholesalers and manufacturers.
