Products Liability

Coats Rose lawyers litigate a range of product liability claims, including those involving auto defects and product defects.  Under product liability law, product defects can include design defects that result from flaws in the design of a product, manufacturing defects that occur during the fabrication of a product, and marketing defects that happen when a product is made available to consumers.

Product liability claims can be based on such marketing defects as improper labeling, incorrect or insufficient instructions, or inadequate safety warnings.

  • Auto defects and crashworthiness
  • Toys
  • Appliances
  • Food
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Industrial machinery
  • Clothing
  • Agricultural products
  • Asbestos
  • Food and water contamination
