Everett Spokane Vancouver Marysville Spokane Valley

The last thing you think about when you get up in the morning is that something you or your loved ones use or consume causing harm. Without even realizing it, we get through our day thanks to thousands of different products. Just the simple act of starting your car and backing out of the driveway sees you using products from dozens of companies.

What happens if something we use or consume does cause us harm?

If you need an Everett product liability attorney, you can count on the experienced team at Russell & Hill, PLLC to be by your side, working to get the compensation you deserve.

What Happens?

Most product liability cases arise in one of three ways:

  1. Poorly Designed – the product was not well designed to begin with, made in a way that can cause injury or illness to the consumer.
  2. Manufacturing Problem – somewhere during the manufacturing process, the product was altered from its original design making it dangerous to consumers. This could affect just some of the product or all produced products.
  3. Improper Labeling – this includes not warning consumers of all hazards associated with a product (choking hazards, burn hazards, medication side effects, allergens present). This also includes not putting the appropriate dosage requirements on a medication.

While you may think these situations are rare, we know otherwise. A quick look at the government website responsible for tracking current recalls will show you that thousands of dangerous products are currently in the hands of US consumers.

We see many of these stories on the nightly news:

  • Vehicle recalls are common, usually due to a small part that can cause fires or problems while driving down the road. Often, the small part responsible is made by a third party.
  • Food recalls are common and we often see massive beef or lettuce recalls. These are certainly not the only foods recalled.

Many items recalled revolve around allergens that are not properly labeled on food products. We also see medications with the wrong dosage instructions on the labels.

While we know that most of the items we buy are safe, we also know that online shopping has opened the doorway to many products that have not been properly inspected or regulated.
