Product liability claims in Chester County can often be complex since there are so many different parties who could share fault for your injuries. Nearly any company involved in the chain of distribution of a particular product could be partially liable for the injuries you sustained. Your attorneys’ in-depth investigation into the cause of your accident will uncover the truth.
It is important to prepare for how the defense will handle your claim against them. In the vast majority of personal injury claims in Chester County, the defendants will argue that the injury victim shares fault for their injuries. Under Pennsylvania General Assembly Statute §7102, the commonwealth follows a modified comparative negligence system with a 51% bar rule.
This means injury victims can share up to 50% of the fault for the accident and still recover compensation for the remaining 50% that is not their fault. Keep in mind that your injury settlement will be reduced if you share liability for your injuries. For this reason, you will need an experienced product liability attorney to ensure that fault is equitably assessed in your case.
