Seattle Product Liability Law

If you have been injured by a defective product, call Seattle personal injury lawyers Scott and Scott, PLLC, to get the justice you deserve.

If you or a family member have sustained serious injury or illness due to a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation. These cases, known as product liability, can relate to any number of products ranging from complicated tools to prescription drugs, food, infant clothes, and toys.

Seattle product liability lawyers Rachel Scott and Brian Scott represent people who have been injured by defective products. Our firm has successfully filed claims for product defects involving industrial machinery, heavy equipment, and consumer goods.

The Washington Product Liability Act of 1981 and the Tort Reform Act of 1986 govern product liability cases in our state. A manufacturer has a duty to supply products that are reasonably safe. They have to be designed safely and manufactured well, and adequate warnings and instructions must accompany the product. Besides the manufacturer, other entities such as the distributor, retailer, or component suppliers may be responsible.

It is vitally important to preserve evidence of the accident as soon as possible. Preserve the product if possible, and take photographs of the product and the accident scene. Obtain witness statements regarding the accident. Make note of the model name and serial number of the product, and keep copies of any documents such as rental contracts or safety or instruction manuals.
