Products Liability Attorneys in Pennsylvania
Products liability involves determining who is responsible for damaged cause by a manufactured product. Often, a products liability case will be settled prior to a court ruling and may mean that a large monetary sum will change hands between the plaintiff and defendant. If the case goes to trial, a court ruling that indicates a company placed a defective product into the hands of a consumer can mean huge negative ramifications for that business. Because of this, your products liability law attorney needs to be vigilant in ensuring you receive a favorable outcome in your products liability case.
Pennsylvania’s Products Liability Law lawyers
There is no federal product liability law, so legal proceedings are based on state laws. It’s important for a products liability law firm to understand the local laws when representing clients in such a claim. When dealing with product liability cases, Sherr Law Group has been following closely the recent rulings in the state of Pennsylvania. Our attorneys have varied experience law experience, including as municipal law lawyers, which has made them adept at abiding by local regulations.
In a 2015 ruling, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has put more of the burden of proof on the plaintiff, instilling the consumer expectations standard and the risk-utility standard in cases of strict liability claims. A plaintiff in a product liability case must prove that the product that caused injury was defective, and that the defect made the product unreasonably dangerous. Whether proving or disproving liability, it is important to remember that it’s necessary to provide proof in the alternative, either of the average consumer’s expectations or of the risk utility of a product. The products liability attorneys of the Sherr Law Group will work tirelessly to meet the burden of proof necessary to reach a favorable outcome for you.
