Laws Regarding Product Liability in Pennsylvania

Defective products are categorized into three different categories in Pennsylvania.

The first is identified as "manufacturing defects." These defects exist when a product is of sound design, but was assembled or built improperly. For example, the design of an electric saw might include an emergency shutoff switch. If this switch was installed improperly, and therefore didn't work, this would be an example of a manufacturing defect.

The second type are design defects. These defects exist when they are inherent in a product's design, and the product cannot be safely manufactured, even if made to specifications. For example, if an electric saw lacks an emergency shutoff switch, this would be a design defect.
