Product Defect Lawyers in Philadelphia and Nationwide

Our attorneys represent clients in catastrophic or serious injuries due to defective products. These defects may be as a result of either a manufacturing defect or a failure to warn about the dangers of the product. If you or a family member have been injured, please call 1-800-590-4116 for a free legal consultation.

People are injured by products sold every day. Many product injuries involve children, who cannot fully appreciate the danger of their actions. For example, inadequate battery housing may allow a child to eat a button battery which becomes stuck in its digestive tract. Or a child may find a brightly colored laundry pod near the washing machine and decide to put it in its mouth. Most recently, the news has shown videos of Ikea dressers tipping over as children attempt to climb them.

Other product defects may be both dangerous and difficult for all to appreciate. For example, inadequate or inappropriate ventilation in a heating system or garage in winter may fill a home with deadly carbon monoxide. Evidence also suggests now that talc used by mothers and barbers, among others, may result in serious injuries, such as ovarian cancer or mesothelioma.

Our trial lawyers represent clients who have been injured by defective products and inadequate manufacturer warnings. For a free consultation, call 1-800-590-4116 to speak to a McEldrew Young attorney.
