SGB attorneys contribute to the new edition of the WSAJ Product Liability Deskbook

SGB attorneys Tom Breen and Sims Weymuller were honored that the Washington State Association for Justice (WSAJ) asked them to write for the newly released  Product Liability Deskbook. The 24 chapter Deskbook is a comprehensive treatise, covering all areas of product litigation in Washington State. Both attorneys authored chapters in the Deskbook; Tom wrote on post-manufacture liability – Chapter 15, and Sims wrote on successor liability – Chapter 16.  Retired SGB attorney Janet L. Rice wrote a chapter on evidentiary issues in product liability – Chapter 20.

SGB has a long, proud history of representing people injured by defective products and this was an opportunity to further that service. These chapters demonstrate our commitment to staying on the cutting edge of product safety and liability issues and to providing high-caliber legal services to our clients. We hope that this work, coupled with the work of the other fine Washington attorneys who authored chapters, will help the citizens of Washington State obtain justice when faulty products fail and, ultimately, make our state a safer place to live.
