Contact us for a free consultation if you believe that a defective product caused your serious injury or the death of a loved one. Based in Hazleton, Pennsylvania, attorney Bob Gillespie takes product liability cases on behalf of victims throughout northeast Pennsylvania. In 30 years of litigation, he has handled a wide range of product liability cases, including:

  • An industrial machine that severed a man's hand
  • A poorly designed restaurant ramp that caused a serious fall
  • A leaking liquid detergent bottle that led to a broken ankle slip-and-fall
  • An exercise machine that collapsed on the user

Proving Product Liability

Pennsylvania permits litigation under the "malfunction theory." If the product was not misused and failed in an unexpected way, the product is presumed to be defective. Plaintiffs do not have to prove that the manufacturer knew of a specific design defect or manufacturing flaw, only that there was a product malfunction for which the manufacturer is responsible.

Nonetheless, product liability cases turn on highly technical arguments that must be supported by expert testimony. Our attorney has cultivated a nationwide network of engineers, accident reconstructionists, human factors experts, OSHA safety experts, and other specialists to serve as experts in your case. For example, in the case of the worker whose hand was amputated by defective machinery, Mr. Gillespie located an expert who had designed similar machines for more than 50 years.
