Product Liability

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Defective Product Injury Lawyer

Product manufacturers, packagers and distributors are required by law to protect consumers from injury or death when using their products. Product designers are required to take into consideration possible dangers that result from foreseeable misuse. Even if a consumer was not using a product exactly according to instructions or was not using it for its intended purpose, liability for injury or death may be established.

Prescription & Medical Device Recalls

Medicine and medical device recalls occur frequently. In other instances, after-the-fact warnings are provided to the public about dangers associated with the use of a prescription medication or a particular medical device, such as a stent, a heart valve, or a prosthesis. Recalls and warnings occur for a number of reasons: the medication or device may not have been designed properly, was not adequately tested before it was released to the public, or interacts with the body or other medications in ways not anticipated. We have set forth below the names of a number of medications and medical devices for which warnings or recalls have appeared in the literature. If you or someone you know has been seriously injured as a result of a prescription or medical device, contact James G. Gordon & Associates to discuss your concerns.
