Pittsburgh Product Liability Lawyers
Advocating for consumer safety
Designers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers are responsible to consumers for producing safe products. When injuries result from a company’s failure to abide by guaranteed safety standards, you have a right to recover. Pittsburgh personal injury lawyer, Jim Moyles, has more than 30 years’ experience helping consumers recover for injuries resulting from:
- Design defects
- Failure to warn
- Manufacturing defects
Standards of products liability in Pennsylvania
Unlike many types of personal injury claims, products liability claims do not necessarily require proof of negligence. You can often recover for injuries that occurred even if the companies that designed, produced and sold the products acted with care and in good faith. Your claim may be covered by the legal standard of:
- Breach of warranty — Companies make guarantees to consumers that their products are safe. When you are injured while using a product as intended, the company has breached its warranty to you.
- Negligence — Corporations are held liable for careless manufacturing mistakes or design defects that cause injury.
- Strict liability — The doctrine of strict liability recognizes that consumers have the right to purchase and use products with the expectation that they are safe. Jim recovers compensation for injuries caused by unreasonably dangerous products without proving the company acted negligently or that the merchandise was defective.
Recalls and safety standards
Products liability lawsuits have reformed consumer safety conditions. By exposing the dangers of a product, you improve industry standards as you recover compensation for the physical, emotional and financial toll that the injuries have taken on you and your family. Many products were only recalled after a consumer was injured or killed.

- Auto defects
- Dangerous drugs
