Should Pennsylvania parents be concerned about toy safety?

A new toy can provide hours of fun and joy to a Pennsylvania child, making the gift of new toy seem harmless. Toy design and manufacture have evolved through the years. At times commercial success takes a backseat to structural integrity of a toy, making toys a potential source of danger rather than enjoyment for a child. For this reason, it is important for all parents, including Pennsylvania parents, to be more discerning of the toys they give their children.

Looking out for product liability victims this holiday season

With Christmas fast approaching, many Pennsylvanians will trudge to the nearest shopping mall to get some early holiday shopping done. The expected influx of customers also means that manufacturers, as well as retailers, will be handing out discounted items and even introduce new products to make sure their cash registers keep ringing throughout the holidays.

What can Pennsylvanians do when they buy a defective product?

Every day, millions of products ranging from food to clothes to toys to appliances are manufactured and sent out to consumers in Pennsylvania and across the United States to use. However, many products may have defects that can cause injuries and even fatalities. Although most of those products are safe to use, there are some that can be hazardous to consumers. It is in the best interests of Pennsylvanians to know if they have a viable product in their hands or a product liability case waiting to happen.

Defective airbags may lead to product liability cases

There is no doubt that Pennsylvanians know how essential airbags are. Airbags were designed to protect drivers and passengers in case of a crash.

Product liability basics for Pennsylvania consumers

Pennsylvanians buy and use hundreds, perhaps thousands, of products in their lifetime. These products can range from food to household implements and items for babies and children.

Pennsylvanians should steer clear of seven deadly products

The Consumer Product Safety Commission recalls hundreds of defective products annually.

Pennsylvania lawsuit claims medication led to baby's death

One of the more difficult situations Pennsylvania parents can experience is when their young children get sick. Children, being young and sensitive, can be hard to medicate. For this reason, medicine specifically designed for children is used. However, like all medicines, there may be side effects that can be detrimental to the children's health, and in a worst case scenario, can even lead to their deaths. A lawsuit claiming that a child lost his life because of taking a particular drug could highlight the need to investigate such medicines.
