Phoenix, AZ Product Liability Attorneys

A defective product not only fails to live up to your expectations, but it can also seriously injure you, leaving you with lasting pain and hardship. To ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve for injuries or damage a defective product has caused you, you should familiarize yourself with the consumer protection laws of your state.  If you or someone you love have suffered as a result of a defective product or product liability, contact an experienced Phoenix, AZ product liability attorney for a free legal consultation.

Product liability is the area of law dealing with liability on the part of the manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer of a product that causes injury or harm. Other parties that can be held responsible for your injuries include the maker of component parts of the product, the assembler, the store or other seller of the product, and/or possibly even other parties in the distribution chain. You can file a claim of product liability even if you weren’t the purchaser of the product.

Product Liability Claims

Product liability claims require that certain circumstances be proven before the claim can be considered successful. These circumstances frequently involve manufacturing defects, design defects, and/or failure-to-warn marketing defects. Manufacturing defects are those defects that occur during the manufacturing process. These defects can be attributable to inherently dangerous or useless design. Design defects are likewise attributable to inherently dangerous or useless design. And marketing defects are those defects that elude consumers’ awareness because of inadequate warning about potentially — yet not readily apparent — dangerous components of a product.

Product Liability Injuries

An injury done to a person — whether that person is you or someone else — by a defective product meets the conditions for compensation under the legal doctrine of “strict liability.” Strict liability holds the manufacturer of the defective product liable without the injured party’s having to prove any negligence on the part of the manufacturer. In order to make a claim of strict liability, you as the injured party must be able to prove that there exist the following conditions:

  • The product has an “unreasonably dangerous” defect that injured you;
  • The defect caused injury during routine use of the product;
  • The product had not been altered from the condition in which it was sold.

Most states have laws on their books that limit how long after the product has been sold to the public that the manufacturer or seller can be subject to liability laws. It is important, therefore, that you keep all receipts, registration cards, and credit card bills in order to provide proof of the product’s age to the manufacturer’s insurance company. It is also important that you demonstrate that you discontinued use of the product once you became aware of its defect. Otherwise, you risk losing your personal injury claim.
