Strict Liability: When Defective Products Cause Property Damage and Personal Injury
You may have grounds for a Pennsylvania product liability lawsuit if the defective product was a “substantial factor” in causing your harm. Generally, a product can cause this harm in one of three ways:
- The product lacked a feature that was needed to make it safe for use or consumption;
- The product contained a feature that made it unsafe; or
- The product lacked warning or instructions about the product’s potential risks.
Pennsylvania is a “strict liability” state. You don’t need to show that someone’s negligence caused your property damage or personal injury. Instead, you need to show the existence of the defect and a relationship to the harm it caused you. Anyone in the chain of distribution can be held liable, including manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers or lessors.
Types of Product Liability Claims

In addition to researching and investigating the defective features of products, the product liability attorneys at business-torts.html also know how to counter commonly raised defenses, such as allegations that you misused the product or assumed the risk of injury.
Keep in mind that there is a two-year statute of limitations under Pennsylvania product liability law. However, even if you don’t bring a lawsuit within two years of your accident or injury, you still may be able to bring a claim if you only recently discovered your injury.
