Product Liability

Kent Product Liability Lawyer

Serving Clients throughout Washington State, Including Federal Way, Auburn, Kent, Renton & Des Moines

We expect that the products we purchase and use every day will help us – but unfortunately that is not always the case. Sometimes products that are seemingly safe can cause serious injury or even death. When this happens, product manufacturers, retailers, and other parties can be held financially liable for the injuries their products cause.

If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a faulty product, turn to the skilled Kent product liability lawyer at Dore Law Group, PLLC. Backed by decades of experience and millions of dollars in recovered verdicts and settlements for our injured clients, we have what it takes to help you pursue maximum compensation.

Call (253) 236-3888 or complete an online form today to discuss your potential case.

Types of Product Defects

Products can be defective in different ways. Sometimes, the products can fail during normal use, which can result in serious injury to the user. In other instances, the product may be defective in design so that it is inherently dangerous, even if it is used in the exact manner for which it was built.

Other products may fail to contain the proper instructions or safety warnings about how to use the product correctly. As a result, users can be injured if they are not made aware of how to use the product in a safe manner.

Product liability cases are typically categorized in the following manner:

  • Design defects: Design defects are, in a manner of speaking, intended. This type of defect is present in the inherent design of the product, making all products of the same type dangerous. An example of a design defect would be a chair that is designed with only three legs, giving it a higher risk of tipping over during use.
  • Manufacturing defects: A manufacturing defect is an unintended error that occurs during the production of an otherwise safe product, making the individual unit dangerous. An example of a manufacturing defect would be if a chair does not have the bolts in one of its legs sufficiently tightened, causing it to be unstable.
  • Marketing defects: Also known as a "failure to warn" case, marketing defects arise when a product is sold to customers without adequate safety instructions or warning labels. This commonly applies to product liability cases involving unknown side effects of prescription pharmaceuticals.
