Our Product Liability Lawyers Helps Win Compensation

We Win 98 Percent of Our Cases

When you buy a product and use it as intended, you do not expect it to harm you, but products that are defective can cause serious injuries and even death. Manufacturers must ensure that their products are safe for consumers to use, or to have a warning if there is some inherent risk in the product.

When this does not happen and a dangerous or defective product harmed you or a family member, you may be able to get compensation through a product liability lawsuit.

Oregon laws regarding product liability are complicated, and product manufacturers and their insurance companies have high-powered lawyers who try to deny claims, get you to accept less than your case is worth, or make it seem as if the injury was your fault.

Making mistakes can be costly, so this is not something you should try to handle on your own. At Strong Law, our Portland product liability lawyers know the laws and the tactics insurance companies use and are fully prepared to fight for the compensation you deserve.

We offer a free consultation to discuss the facts of your case and determine the best way to move forward. There are no fees to you unless and until we win your case, so call us today at 206-737-3496 to get started.

Damages Our Product Liability Lawyers in Portland May Recover

Compensation for All Your Losses

In a successful lawsuit, our Portland, OR product liability lawyers may win an award that compensates for your damages — the expenses and losses you suffered from the accident. Oregon law allows bike accident victims to recover the following damages:

  • Economic damages for the monetary losses caused by your accident, such as medical and rehabilitation expenses, lost wages from being unable to work, property damage, and funeral costs in case of a death.
  • Non-economic damages are the losses that do not have a specific dollar value but negatively impact your life, such as mental and physical pain and suffering, disability or disfigurement, and loss of consortium and enjoyment of life.

In some rare situations, you may also receive punitive damages to punish a defendant and discourage such actions in the future. According to Oregon law, (ORS 31.730), these can be awarded if the defendant “has acted with malice or has shown a reckless and outrageous indifference to a highly unreasonable risk of harm and has acted with a conscious indifference to the health, safety, and welfare of others. “

The amount you should receive depends on your case’s individual circumstances. In general, the more costly and severe injuries that involve permanent damage and require long-term care or result in death often bring the highest settlement awards. When you consult with us, our Strong Law attorneys will have an idea of what your case should be worth and the settlement we should fight for.

“Very professional, and treated me as an equal.”

Just wanted to say thank you to Jed and his team at Strong Law. Not only was I happy with the outcome, but the entire process as a whole. I would definitely recommend this firm to anyone. Thanks again.

“Unbelievable work!”

I had a claim involving my own insurance company. I tried to negotiate with them, and they completely denied my claim – two times. I then hired Strong Law, and the change was instant. The insurance company immediately began negotiating, and Jed was able to secure an unbelievably good settlement. I will never again attempt to take-on an insurance company without Strong Law in my corner. Thank you!”

Our Portland Product Liability Lawyers Answer FAQs

After being injured by a defective product, it is natural to have questions and concerns. These are best addressed in your free consultation, but to get started, here are some answers to questions our attorneys are often asked.

What Damage Awards Can I Receive?

There is a wide range of damage amounts that you may receive in a successful product liability lawsuit, from the thousands to millions of dollars. The amount you receive depends on the individual factors and circumstances of your case, such as the severity and permanence of your injuries, whether you need continuing care, your earning capacity, and whether you will be able to work in the future. The skill of your attorneys to negotiate and build your case is also a factor.

Are There Time Limits to Filing a Lawsuit?

Yes, Oregon has a statute of limitations (ORS 12.110) and a deadline for filing an injury lawsuit that is generally two years from the accident. The statute of limitations on wrongful death claims is generally three years from the time of death. If you fail to file on time, the courts will likely refuse to hear your case.

Should I Talk to the Insurance Company?

No, the less you say to insurance companies, the better. Insurance companies want to pay out as little as possible and use tactics such as making a lowball offer, they hope you will accept quickly, or trying to get you to admit that the accident was your fault. Tell the insurance company to talk to your attorney, and let Strong Law handle all negotiations to get you the settlement you deserve.

What if There was a Death from a Defective Product?

If you have lost your loved one due to a defective product, our attorneys might be able to file a wrongful death claim. In Oregon, the statute (ORS 30.020) allows the personal representative of the decedent to file a case for the benefit of the surviving spouse, surviving children, surviving parents, and other individuals who would be entitled to inherit the personal property of the decedent.

What if I did Something to Contribute to the Injury?

Even if you did something to contribute to the injury, you might still collect compensation. Oregon’s contributory negligence statute (ORS 31.600) does not bar recovery if you are not found to be more than 50% responsible for the resulting injury. However, the amount you collect will be reduced according to the percentage of fault you are found to have.

When you have our Strong Law attorneys on your side, we will be there for you throughout the entire legal process, answering your questions and keeping you informed.

Defective Product Attorney Explains Product Injury Lawsuits

Suppose you have been injured by a defective product. In that case, you deserve compensation, and the parties responsible for the product defect should be held accountable for their negligence through a product liability lawsuit. Your defective product attorney will look for the type of defect that caused your injuries, and will also identify every party in the chain of distribution of the product who can be held liable.

Under Oregon’s Product Liability statutes (ORS § 30.900 et seq.), if you are injured by a defective product, then the manufacturer, distributor, seller, or lessor of the product may be held liable for your personal injury, death, or property damages that are caused by:

  • Any design, inspection, testing, manufacturing, or other defects in a product. Manufacturing defects are flaws or defects that occur in the manufacturing process and may involve poor-quality materials or shoddy workmanship. Design defects occur when the design is flawed and the product is unreasonably dangerous and can cause injury, even though it is manufactured properly.
  • Any failure to warn regarding a product. This occurs when a product has a non-obvious danger that could be avoided through adequate warnings.
  • Any failure to properly instruct in the use of a product. Manufacturers are required to provide instructions to the user if the product must be used a certain way to be safe; they can be held liable if they fail to do so.

Depending on the circumstances, multiple parties may be responsible for your injuries. For example, the manufacturer may have made a defective product, and the retailer may have sold it even though they knew or should have known it was defective.

Sometimes, wholesalers, who are “middlemen” between the manufacturer and the retailer, may also be held liable. Our Portland product liability lawyers will investigate how the product was manufactured and distributed to find all parties potentially at fault for the damages you received. We will name them all as defendants in the lawsuit since they all may have insurance and assets that can go toward a settlement.

Product Injury Lawyers Must Prove Negligence

If a product liability lawsuit is based on negligence, our product injury lawyers would have to show the existence of the following elements:

  • The defendant had a duty of care not to cause harm.
  • This duty was breached because the product was defective and unreasonably dangerous.
  • The product got to you and was used properly without a substantial change in condition.
  • The defective product caused you harm.
  • You suffered damages as a result.

Strict Liability

In some cases, instead of trying to prove negligence, our Portland product liability attorneys can use the principle of “strict liability.” Under strict liability, it must only be shown that the product was defective, that the defect made the product unreasonably dangerous, and that the defect caused your injury.

“Unreasonably dangerous” means that the product must be more dangerous than an ordinary user would expect because of a flaw in the materials used, faulty manufacturing, an unsafe design, or inadequate instructions or warnings. Under strict liability, the product must have been used in a manner for which it is intended or reasonably anticipated and that it was not altered in a way that increased the risk of product failure or accident. Our product liability lawyers will utilize the evidence produced by our investigations to show that this was not the case.

What Kinds Of Cases Are Personal Injury?

Examples are: Auto accidents; motorcycle accidents; semi-truck accidents; wrongful death; medical malpractice; slip, trip and fall; boating accidents, faulty equipment, nursing home abuse; and many others.

Will I Be Charged To Consult Or Talk With You?

No, not ever. Strong Law is a contingency personal injury firm offering specialized experience along with access when you need it. Our goal is to gain the best settlement and provide comfort in the process, so easy access to us is part of our best practices.

What Does Contingency Mean?

Contingency in a legal matter means an expense to the client based on the outcome of a future event or circumstance which is possible but cannot be predicted with certainty. Said another way, Strong Law gets paid only if your case settles.

Can You Give Me An Assessment Of My Case?

Absolutely. While we cannot guarantee anything, nor do we imply a settlement, our willingness to take your case (and do it on contingency) is our voice that we feel your case has strong merit. After speaking with you, we can provide a merit assessment over the phone. However, we caution that accepting your case does not promise anything, your outcome is reflected in the law firm you choose.

What Should I Do If I’m Having Problems, Like Their Insurance Company Is Calling Me?

Always secure an attorney first. If you sign up with Strong Law now, you can advise their insurance company that you have representation and give them our name and contact information. From that time forward, they should not be contacting you again; it’s the law. If you do not sign with an attorney, like Strong Law, you will need to speak with them and represent yourself to resolve your injury. We strongly urge against this; insurance companies are skilled at ensuring their best interests over yours.

What Are Common Reasons For Insurance Injury Denials?

Make sure you receive medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident, otherwise insurance may argue your pain is from an unrelated incident.Insurance companies will be going out of their way to find some proof that the accident was your fault. Don’t be intimidated.If you have preexisting medical conditions that make you more likely to suffer an injury, it is not uncommon for insurance agencies to deny claims based on this.

How Long Does A Case Take To Settle?

It depends on many factors like medical care, future needs, evidence, proof of liability, and many others. Some cases take months while others can last a couple years. Ultimately, our goal is to represent you and what is going to be best for you in the long run.

Why Can Cases Last Years?

Because the law dictates it. There are many layers to make sure the insurance companies treat you with optimal care. For example, there will be time spent for medical treatments you might need. There is time to gather the needed medical reports and discover any long term impacts this injury will have on your life today and into the future. There is time for the other side to review our demands, research, and respond as well. It can feel like a long time, but we follow the law and strategize for the best benefit to you. We are with you the whole time.
