Defending Against Defective Products

In the blink of an eye, a product you regularly use at home or work can malfunction, causing injury or even death. After an accident involving a product that suddenly becomes dangerous, a defect in its design or manufacture may become apparent. But establishing that the manufacturer or designer is responsible for your injuries can be a difficult task.

Defective products are responsible for a multitude of severe injuries and deaths across the United States each year. At Putnam Lieb Potvin Dailey in Olympia, we realize the horrible effects that product failure has on the lives of our clients. Our dedicated attorneys investigate accident causes and advocate for the rights of injured victims.

Tracking Down Danger

Defective product claims can stem from the faulty manufacture of the item, a design that inadequately ensures consumer safety or the failure a manufacturer, designer or seller to warn consumers of a known danger directly relating to the product. Items covered under defective products can include:

  • Medical devices
  • Consumer products
  • Mechanical parts

The product liability lawyers at Putnam Lieb Potvin Dailey have the experience to identify who is responsible for the improper design or manufacture of an item that caused injury, pain and suffering or death. Those responsible may include corporations, insurance companies or individuals.

Identifying The Responsible Parties

Although no one can take away an injury or death caused by a defective product, the experienced, dedicated personal injury attorneys at Putnam Lieb Potvin Dailey can pursue compensation for your losses through product liability litigation. We provide free initial consultations and charge fees on a contingency basis, which means you don't pay us unless we win your case.

In most cases, the Washington statute of limitations gives victims of defective product injuries three years from the date of injury to file a claim against the at-fault party. If the injury happened at work, the workers' compensation claim must be filed within one year. Act today to defend your rights.
