We expect the products we buy to work properly and not cause us harm. Unfortunately, people get hurt every day by the consumer products they purchased to make their lives easier, from cars to garden tools to children's toys. Sometimes the manufacturer was negligent or cut corners to keep its costs down or rush a product to market. Other times the product defect was an honest mistake. Either way, when products hurt consumers, manufacturers are often liable for the injuries. If a defective item caused your injuries, a product liability lawyer in Bucks County can help you hold the manufacturer responsible.

The Cordisco & Saile LLC Team Handles All Product Liability Claims.
Even the most seemingly benign products can cause harm if designed or manufactured improperly. In our years fighting product liability claims, our attorneys have seen products like defective airbags, faulty tires, and even exploding batteries in cell phones cause injuries.
Consumer products often cited in liability claims include:
- Automobile parts;
- Power tools;
- Kitchen items;
- Prescription drugs;
- Sporting goods; and
- Recreational vehicles.
The range of injuries can vary as much as the products that cause them. Injuries from defective products are often life-threatening. In worst-case scenarios, they can even be fatal. Even if your injury was minor, you could still be eligible for substantial damages, but you will not know what you qualify for until you sit down with an attorney and discuss the details of your case.

The Types of Product Liability Cases
Product liability is a vast field of law, which makes it all the more important to work with a lawyer who focuses on the field and has a successful track record in it.
Most product liability claims fall into one of three categories.
When designing a product, part of the manufacturer's responsibility is to ensure its safety. As an example, if the product contains sharp components, the manufacturer needs to conceal or sufficiently shield these from the user. Oversights in the design phase can result in product flaws that cause serious injuries. The manufacturer is liable for damages when this happens.
Even if the engineers get the design right, it is up to those who manufacture the product to put it together correctly. If an error occurs during assembly, the product can become defective and cause injury.
Inadequate Safety Warnings
Some products, by their very nature, pose hazards to consumers. A lawnmower, for instance, would not do much good without sharp, fast-spinning blades. Companies that manufacture dangerous products must provide warnings and detailed instructions on how to use them safely. If they fail to do so, they leave themselves open to liability if an accident occurs.
The Manufacturer Does Not Have to Be Negligent for You to Win Damages.
We can win damages as long as we can prove three things:
- A consumer product caused your injury;
- You did not alter the product that injured you in any material way; and
- You were using the product for its intended purpose.
When we take your case, we gather evidence to prove each of these conditions is true. Then we seek damages from the manufacturer and its insurance company. We do not accept any settlement offer that pays less than you deserve. Instead, we fight aggressively for full damages.
We Will Fight for Full Compensation for Your Defective Product Injuries.
Victims in product liability cases are often eligible for multiple types of damages. At Cordisco & Saile LLC, we conduct a thorough investigation into your injury and calculate the complete scale of damages you should receive. We aggressively pursue the full amount and do not leave compensation on the table.
You might be eligible for some or all of the following damages:
- Your current and anticipated medical costs;
- Your lost wages, which include the income you are unable to earn while you recover;
- Your reduced earning capacity, if your ability to earn a living declines on a short-term or long-term basis;
- Your pain and suffering to make up for the suffering you have experienced due to your injury; and
- Punitive damages if evidence shows the manufacturer acted with extreme negligence or exhibited malicious behavior.
