Product Liability Attorney Vancouver, Washington
Product liability is the area of law in which manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public are held responsible for the injuries those products cause. The claims most commonly associated with product liability are negligence, strict liability, breach of warranty, and various consumer protection claims. Each type of product liability claim requires different elements to be proven to present a successful claim. Our experienced Vancouver product liability attorneys have successfully represented numerous clients in product liability claims.
Types of liability
There are three major types of product liability claims:
- Manufacturing defect: Manufacturing defects are those that occur in the manufacturing process and usually involve poor-quality materials or shoddy workmanship.
- Design defect: Design defects occur where the product design is inherently dangerous or useless (and hence defective) no matter how carefully manufactured.
- Failure to warn (marketing defects): Failure-to-warn defects arise in products that carry inherent non-obvious dangers which could be mitigated through adequate warnings to the user, and these dangers are present regardless of how well the product is manufactured and designed for its intended purpose.
