Pittsburgh Product Liability Attorney

Franklin Park Defective Products Lawyer

Lawyer in Allegheny County for Victims of Defective Products

When a person is injured by some type of consumer product, including household items, toys, or even prescription drugs, the victim may be entitled to compensation for his or her injuries. The road to recovery, however, is often quite challenging, as product manufacturers and distributors are quick to deflect blame in an effort to avoid liability. At Colianni & Leonard LLC, we know that the average person may find it almost impossible to hold companies responsible for dangerous products, at least on their own. If you or your child has been injured by a defective or poorly designed product, our skilled team is equipped to help you seek the full compensation you deserve.

Attorney Vincent Colianni is a seasoned product liability attorney with more than 20 years of legal experience. Throughout his career, he has recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for his clients, and he is prepared to put his proven approach to work for you and your family. At our firm, we are committed to providing zealous representation to injured victims combined with unmatched personal attention and world-class client service. We understand the games that defendants and their insurance companies like to play as they look to protect their public image. Our team will work tirelessly to help you secure the compensation you need from any and all responsible parties.

Product Liability Cases in Western Pennsylvania

When a company produces a product for consumer use, the manufacturer is responsible for eliminating foreseeable dangers to the end user. Sadly, countless dangerous and defective products still make it into the hands of unsuspecting consumers. Each year, approximately one million Americans seek medical attention for injuries caused by dangerous products, and most such cases fall into one of three categories:

  • Defective Design: A product that is flawed from the very beginning may be considered to have a design defect. Defective design affects every product that shares the same design. A sport-utility vehicle with a high center of gravity may be considered to have a defective design if the vehicle tends to roll over under reasonable driving conditions, such as swerving to miss debris on the road;
  • Manufacturing Defects: In some cases, a product's design is safe, but something in the manufacturing process causes the product to become dangerous. Low-quality materials, counterfeit parts, and poor quality control practices can all create manufacturing defects. An example of a manufacturing defect could be a worn-out assembly line machine that does not tighten the screws properly on a children's toy. If the toy later falls apart because of the loose screws and injures the child, the company could be liable for the manufacturing defect;
  • Marketing Defects: Sometimes known as a "failure to warn," a marketing defect is a problem with how an inherently dangerous product is presented to the consumer. Some products will always be dangerous, including saws, axes, construction equipment, and even prescription drugs. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer and distributor of such products to include adequate warnings about the dangers, as well as instructions for using the products safely.
