Products Liability

Products liability, also frequently referred to as product liability, is a practice mainstay of Deasey, Mahoney & Valentini.

Our highly regarded products liability attorneys have successfully served as defense counsel in product liability litigation ranging from a class action involving allegedly defective baby bottles to personal injuries allegedly resulting from poultry processing equipment to cases involving athletic footwear, milk crates and cleaning solvents. In the well-known matter of Wenrick v. SchloemannSiemag A.G., 564 A.2d 1244 (1989), which arose from an incident involving an extrusion press, Deasey, Mahoney & Valentini lawyers persuaded the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to establish the product liability doctrine that a component part manufacturer is not responsible for a defect in an end product. Whether a products liability lawsuit is the result of alleged personal injury or property damage, our attorneys are prepared to litigate the matter or pursue a course of alternative dispute resolution on behalf of manufacturers, distributors, retailers, insurers and other entities.
