Philadelphia Product Liability Attorney
Zealous advocates for injured consumers
Consumers expect that the products they use and depend on are safe. Unfortunately, defective products are released onto the market every year. All too often, the damage is done before these products are recalled. van der Veen, Hartshorn and Levin is Pennsylvania’s top personal injury and product liability law firm. When dangerous products harm Pennsylvania residents, we are relentless in advocating for the injured. Mr van der Veen lives for the challenge of taking on even the largest manufacturers in his fight to obtain compensation for injured victims of defective or dangerous products. Our tenacious Philadelphia product liability attorneys do not let up until we’ve secured what you deserve.
What kind of consumer products are subject to product liability claims?
When many people think of defective products, high-profile medical devices often come to mind. While these products frequently make headlines in product liability news, the reality is that any product can injure you if it is defective:
- Children’s toys
- Sports equipment
- Home appliances
- Construction equipment
- Over-the-counter drugs
- Prescription medications
- Electronic devices
- Power tools
- Automobile parts
With more than two decades of product liability litigation experience, Mr. van der Veen has seen it all. When companies and manufacturers harm innocent people, we do not rest until responsible parties compensate victims for their injuries.
How do you know if you have been a victim of a defective product?
Being injured while using a product does not necessarily mean that the product is defective or that you have a legal action. Broadly speaking, the following underlying issues give rise to product liability claims:
- Design defects—Some products are defective or faulty due to an inherent flaw in the product design.
- Manufacturing defects—A defect can occur at many points in the manufacturing chain, rendering an otherwise safe product defective.
- Inadequate or missing warnings—If a product is not accompanied by warnings that adequately detail the dangers associated with use, it may be deemed defective.
