A defective product is as a product which is found to be unreasonably dangerous to the user when used in the way that it was intended to be used. In product liability tort law, a vendor may be liable for prosecution if the product is found to have been dangerously defective or unsafe. If you have you been injured, lost wages or suffered other damages because of a product, you may be entitled to damages. Our expert defective products attorneys handle each step of the pre-trial and trial process (if necessary) from building a case to filing the complaint and pre-trial litigation. Contact us today!

How do I know whether I should pursue a defective products claim?
We believe your well being and the well being of your family and loved ones is more important than money or legal action. However, if you suspect that you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury or harm from a defective product, you may wish to seek the opinion of a qualified product liability attorney to determine if you have a claim.
Do I really need to hire an attorney or should I handle my own product liability claim?
To identify whether or not you have a viable defective products claim it is necessary to determine whether negligence was committed by the manufacturer, retailer or distributor. The expertise and peace of mind that an attorney can bring to building a products liability case is invaluable. In addition, it is common for a lawyer to obtain a settlement five to twenty times the amount a person would receive by fighting for justice on their own.
How much do I have to pay to pursue a claim?
There are no upfront costs or fees paid by our clients to pursue a products liability claim as we provide representation on a contingency fee basis for personal injury cases. While you will not incur any attorney fees if you do not win your case, Washington State law requires clients to reimburse the law firm for out-of-pocket expenses. Our firm advances out-of-pocket costs and does not require our injury clients to pay any of these costs up front. When cases are concluded with a monetary recovery, our firm is repaid for the out-of-pocket costs we have advanced with a percentage of the settlement.
