Product Liability Litigation
Manufacturers and suppliers have a duty to ensure their products are safe, effective, and suitable for consumer use. When they fail to do so and you suffer a personal injury as a result, you may be entitled to hold the manufacturer, supplier, or a third party responsible for your damages.
The product liability attorneys at The Hornbuckle Firm are prepared to help victims of defective and dangerous products get the compensation they deserve. We will investigate your claim, determine where liability should lie, and fight to get you every penny you are due.
Product Liability Law
Product liability law states that manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, and suppliers are responsible for ensuring a product’s safety. Because unsafe products can result in serious personal injury or even death, it is vital that manufacturers take every precaution necessary to guard against potential defects.
There are three main types of defects that may be covered in product liability cases:
- Design defects – flaws in the intentional design of a product that makes all products created using this design unsafe for use
- Manufacturing defects – flaws that occur during the manufacturing process, rendering a particular unit or batch of products unsafe
- Marketing defects – Improper labeling, insufficient instructions, or a failure to warn of a product’s dangers, including those that may arise from less obvious forms of misuse
Proving product liability is incredibly difficult and time is not on your side. In the state of Washington, you have two years from the date of injury to file a claim, but waiting is never a good idea. The longer you wait to secure legal representation, the more difficult proving your case can become. As soon as you are injured from a defective product, our liability attorney can launch an investigation into the cause of your injury and help you determine all that you may be entitled to pursue.
In product liability cases, there can be multiple parties held liable for your damages. For example, in cases involving dangerous drugs or defective medical devices, the manufacturer may have known about potential dangers, which may make them solely liable. However, the company that markets the products may also have known, as could the doctor prescribing the medications and the company distributing them. This makes four potentially liable parties, all of which will have high powered legal teams to fight against your claim.
The only way to make sure you are treated fairly and provided full compensation is with the help of a product liability attorney who has the experience and tenacity required to litigate these cases. With over six decades of combined experience and a proven track record of success, the product liability lawyers at The Hornbuckle Firm are ready to help you maximize the value of your compensation.
