You Should Be Able To Trust Your Tools

Almost all of us have livelihoods built around using certain tools such as computers or wrenches, every day. Without safe, working tools our lives and livelihoods are in jeopardy. If a faulty toy or tool has caused an injury to you, Ryan R. Smith Law Offices wants to hear from you.

Your injury and livelihood are the central supports that we build your case around. We get to know you on a personal level, see your home and listen to your story. We find out exactly what was lost when you had your injury. Attorney Ryan Smith's experience as a defense attorney in insurance liability gives him an insight into how to get you the compensation you deserve.

What Is Product Liability?

Product liability is a term that refers to who is responsible when you are injured by a faulty product. Pennsylvania law requires that a manufacturer be liable for your injury under three circumstances:

  • Defective design: If the way the product is designed leaves an opportunity to be injured in an unexpected way, then the design itself is at fault.
  • Manufacturing defect: If during the manufacturing phase either a harmful product was introduced, or a part was not sufficiently attached and you are injured as a result, then the manufacturer was liable.
  • Lack of adequate warnings or instructions: Some products, such as chain saws and sharp knives, are inherently dangerous. If the device comes without proper safety warnings or instructions and you are injured then you may be entitled to compensation.
