Defective Products / Products Liability
The lawyers at Swanson Gardner Meyers, PLLC, have been taking on corporations and seeking compensation for victims of dangerous products since 1982.
Product liability law mandates that companies are responsible for the harm caused by dangerous or defective products that they produce or sell to the public. In addition, those injured have a right to seek compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other expenses incurred as a result of the harm cause by defective and dangerous products. In many cases, major manufacturers will initially challenge their legal responsibility, fearing the possibility of a large scale recall or additional lawsuits from people who suffered similar injuries. That is why it is important to choose a law firm experienced in defective products litigation.
We represented a young man who was ejected from a car during an accident and sustained serious injuries. We demonstrated that the two-point motorized seat belt in the Ford vehicle was defective, and secured the largest settlement the Ford Motor Company had ever paid at the time for a claim involving its automatic seat belt system.
In another case, we represented a client who was seriously injured by a popular home exercise gym. When a part failed, the gym collapsed. Our investigation revealed multiple recalls and expert analysis demonstrated manufacturer fault. We successfully resolved the case on behalf of the client.
Recently, we represented the family of a wife and mother who was killed when the van she was riding in rolled due to a tire failure. Our clients lived in Washington, the accident occurred in the Midwest, and the case venue was California. We joined forces with attorneys representing other passengers injured in this terrible accident, and obtained a successful result for our client.
Design defects and manufacturing defects can be deadly. Our marketplace is flooded with products that have been poorly tested. Many products that are proven to cause harm to consumers are insufficiently regulated or not regulated at all.
