Spokane Product Liability Attorney
Regardless of the industry or the intended use of the product, designers, manufacturers, and distributors of any commercial product have a responsibility to provide their consumers with safe and reliable products. When dangerous or defective products are manufactured and sold, the manufacturing companies are liable for any injuries or accidents that may take place as a result of these defective products.
Product Liability Laws in Washington State
When bringing a design defect lawsuit, it is important to note that this type of suit does not cover defects specific to one individual item, but a defect that is common to all products of a particular make. For example, a power tool designed without a safety guard could be considered to have a design defect if the lack of a safety guard leads an individual to cut his/her finger.
Also, manufacturers and sellers can be found “guilty without fault” if they produce and sell a product that is unreasonably dangerous (or is sold in a defective condition). In these instances, the actions and intentions of the manufacturers/sellers are not taken into question, even if they took every precaution to create a safe product. Guilt is assigned strictly on the basis of creating and distributing an unreasonably dangerous product.

Elements of a Successful Product Liability Claim
It can be very difficult to win a manufacturing defect lawsuit without the aid of experienced and qualified legal professionals. In order to win one of these lawsuits, the plaintiff will have to prove that:
- The product in question malfunctioned
- The product was defective
- The defect caused an injury
- The product was used in a reasonably foreseeable way
While it can be difficult to win these types of lawsuits, it is certainly not impossible—with the right legal assistance.
