DANGEROUS &
DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS

 

Millions of products enter the stream of commerce and are sold in the United States each year – medical devices and drugs, cars, trucks and bicycles, appliances, tools, toys and countless other things.  Most of these products receive scant government scrutiny before being sold to consumers. 

 

Manufacturers sometimes rush products to market before testing them properly, seeking an advantage against their competitors.  Sometimes they market products and drugs for uses not approved or anticipated by federal regulators.  When products are defective – because they are poorly designed, because errors are made in their manufacture, or because they come without good warnings and instructions – they can cause great harm.  Washington’s Product Liability Act, RCW 7.72, makes product manufacturers and sellers accountable for injuries caused by their defective or dangerous products.

 

Attorney Corrie J. Yackulic has represented dozens of Pacific Northwest individuals and families with claims arising from defective products.  Her clients have brought claims against the makers of pharmaceuticals, dangerous drugs & medical devices, and other medical products, including Talcum powder and ovarian cancer, YAZ and Yasmin oral contraceptives, Vioxx, SSRI anti-depressants, pain pumps that irreversibly harm shoulder cartilage, hip prostheses, cochlear implants, transvaginal mesh products, Mirena IUDs; and against the makers of other consumer products including bicycles and camp stoves.
