Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Nationwide
When you purchase a product, you likely trust that the manufacturer and associated distributors and retailers have taken the necessary measures to ensure the product is safe when used as directed for its intended purpose.
Unfortunately, that is not always the reality, and each year thousands of preventable injuries and deaths occur as a result of defective products. The Philadelphia product liability attorneys at Golomb & Honik have recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for victims of defective products in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and across the United States.
Types of Defective Products
Those who design, produce, distribute and sell a given product have an obligation to consumers to provide a good that is free from harmful defects and contains appropriate warnings. The product liability lawyers at Golomb & Honik have successfully represented class action and individual product liability claims related to:
- Dangerous drugs and medical devices

- Defective household items
We are dedicated to protecting the rights of consumers, and we have the knowledge, resources and willpower to challenge pharmaceutical companies, car manufacturers and others whose negligence puts harmful products in the hands of consumers.
Negligence and Defective Products
Negligence that results in defective products reaching consumers can occur at any point between product design and the item’s sale. In product liability lawsuits, negligence is typically related to:
- Flaws in the design or engineering of the product prior to manufacture
- Faulty production or product assembly; the product is not made as designed
- Tampering or unintentional contamination of a product that results in danger to consumers
- Marketing defects such as inadequate safety warnings or inaccurate instructions
In order to prove negligence in product liability cases, it must be demonstrated that the product was defective and dangerous when used as intended, and that harm was suffered as a direct result of using the product as directed.
