Products Liability in Pennsylvania: How Attorneys Can Get Started

By: Anapol Weiss

Companies have a duty to design, manufacture, distribute, lease, and sell products without defects. A company is liable for harm caused by any defect it could have controlled — even if the company took all possible care. However, the costs and risks of accepting a product defect case can be daunting, and it can take years to reach settlement or trial.

This webinar series is presented by personal injury lawyers Larry Coben and Jaime Jackson, two leading products liability lawyers who have achieved many multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for clients. The series will provide trial lawyers with the insight they need to begin taking on products liability cases without wasting time and resources. From case selection to trial, this in-depth, six-part webinar series takes attorneys through the steps toward success with products liability cases.

Part one of this webinar covers the legal landscape of products liability in Pennsylvania. Topics include:

  • Policy considerations

  • Potential defendants

  • Case law

  • Strict liability

  • Negligence in marketing and warnings

This first video begins the roadmap for attorneys to build a products liability practice.
