A flawed product can injure you very seriously, as well as not live up to your surmise, leaving you with lasting pain and hardship. To ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve for injuries or damage that a defective product has caused to you, consider familiarizing yourself with the consumer protection laws of your state. If you or someone you love have suffered as a result of a product liability or defective product please contact an experienced Phoenix, AZ product liability attorney for a free legal consultation.Product liability is the field of law determining the accountability of the retailer, manufacturer, or wholesaler of a product that causes injury or harm. Other parties that can be held responsible for your injuries include the producer of component parts for the product, the assembler, and/or possibly other parties in the distribution and production chain. You are able to file a claim of product liability even if you are not the buyer of the product.
Product Liability Claims
Product liability claims require that certain circumstances are met before it can be considered successful. These circumstances frequently involve manufacturing defects, design defects, and/or failure-to-warn marketing defects. Manufacturing defects are issues that occur during the fabrication process. These defects can be attributable to inherently dangerous or unnecessary design; defects are likewise attributable to inherently dangerous or useless design. And marketing defects are those that elude consumers’ awareness because of inadequate warning of potentially — yet not readily apparent — dangerous parts 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 commodity liable without the injured party’s needing to prove any negligence on the part of the fabricator. 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 or someone else;
- The defect caused injury during routine use of the product;
- The product had not been modified from the condition in which it was sold.
Most states have laws within their literature that limit the liability of the manufacturer or seller based on the time the product was sold to the public. 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 commodity once you became aware of its defect. Otherwise, you risk losing your personal injury claim.If you have found that you have suffered injury from a defective product, consult Phoenix product liability attorneys trained in the rules and regulations governing product liability.
