Product Liability Law
Typically, personal injury claims involve negligence. However, the Washington Products Liability Act was designed to supplant the negligence standard and impute strict liability on defendants whose products were improperly designed or manufactured. This means a manufacturer may be held liable for failing to include a safety measure – from not having proper quality control in place to overlooking injury-causing aspects of the product. It also means a business can sometimes be found liable for a manufacturer’s mistake due to insolvency or branded marketing. All of this illustrates the importance of partnering with an attorney who understands your product and industry.
