Seattle Injuries Caused by Defective Products

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on May 23, 2016

A hidden defect in the way a product is manufactured or designed can cause serious injuries to the user of the product. Injuries are also commonly caused by warnings not being included to alert users to hidden dangers in the product. Because the defect is often invisible to the eye, the user or others may be severely injured before they even realize the product poses an unreasonable risk of harm.

Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. has handled many defective product injury claims over the years. Here are some of the most common types of injuries caused by defective products our clients have suffered:

Burn injuries – Thermal (heat), electrical, and chemical burns can easily be caused by defective products where the dangerous condition is in the wiring, in chemical components, or where toxic substances were used in the making or packaging of the product. A lack of adequate warnings about potential burn risks can also lead to harm.
Bone and soft tissue injuries – When any part of the body is pinned, trapped, or crushed in the defective product’s moving parts, broken bones, bruises and lacerations, and severe “crush injury” damage to soft tissue may result. When these injuries are severe, the pain and impairment of motion that they cause may be permanent.
Amputations – Some products are defective in a way that causes the amputation of a finger or other body part. In other cases, injuries from the defect are so severe that an injured body part must be amputated in order to save the injured person’s life.
