Consumers can be injured or killed when a dangerous product is designed, manufactured, or labeled improperly. Cases that revolve around defective products are known as product liability lawsuits. Types of products involved in product liability claims can include prescription medications, medical devices, furniture, toys, electronics, home appliances, cars and car parts, batteries, e-cigarettes, and many other items.
In a product liability claim, there can be multiple liable parties. Dealing with all parties involved – and their insurance companies – can be tough and confusing. However, our experienced lawyers can handle the details for you while you focus on receiving medical care.
Workplace Injury Claims
Every year, thousands of employees are injured at work in the United States. Some of the most common types of workplace accidents include slip and falls, being caught in or struck by machinery, and other occupational accidents. If you file a workers’ compensation claim, you are generally barred from filing a personal injury lawsuit against your employer. However, you may have a claim against third parties, such as equipment manufacturers. Our work injury lawyers can help you determine the right course of legal action after being injured on the job.
Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Pennsylvania
There are certain facts you should be aware of when filing a personal injury lawsuit in Pennsylvania. For example, it is important to understand that most personal injury cases are based on negligence. This means you must show that you were injured because of the careless actions of the defendant, using various types of evidence. Types of evidence that could support a personal injury claim include medical records, insurance documents, accident photos, and other sources of information.
You also have to be aware of certain laws governing how much time you have to file your personal injury claim. Pennsylvania has a statute of limitations which gives personal injury victims a set time to file their claims. The Pennsylvania statute of limitations for personal injury case is generally two years from the date of injury. Failing to file before the time limit seriously jeopardizes your ability to recover any financial compensation.
