Mike has successfully represented numerous workers who had to amputate limbs after sustaining injuries from poorly designed press brakes, wood moulders and other cutting machinery. He recovered over $900,000 for a worker who lost his hand while learning how to use a press break that had a faulty foot switch. He is investigating cases against Pfizer for the drug Chantix, a drug intended to curb nicotine addiction but may also cause seizures, blackouts and, at times, suicides for people shortly after they start using the product.

Standing up to Companies that Injure Consumers by Manufacturing Faulty Products

Manufacturers of faulty products are responsible for injuries resulting from their use. There are two main theories under which manufacturers can be held liable for faulty products:

  • Manufacturers are strictly liable when a consumer sustains an injury from a defective design or an improperly manufactured product
  • Manufacturers are also liable when they fail to warn the user about a product’s potential danger

If you are able to prove just one of these theories, you could recover compensation from the manufacturer for your injuries.

Fighting for the Rights of Those Hurt by Pharmaceutical Giants

Some of the most serious injuries occur when powerful drug companies manufacture and sell dangerous prescription and over-the-counter medications. The FDA requires a lengthy process for testing and selling such medications. Unfortunately, even FDA-approved drugs like Vioxx, Ortho Evra, Chantix, Prozac and Zyprexa can have serious or fatal side effects. In such instances, the pharmaceutical companies can and should be held responsible for any injuries that develop.

If you sustained injuries because manufacturer or pharmaceutical company made or sold a faulty product or dangerous drug, you should contact a Seattle injury attorney who is up to the challenge of seeking justice against a corporate giant.
