Product Liability Cases
Have you been injured by a product? If so, you may have a claim against the manufacturer or seller of the product. There are various types of product defects that cause injury. A product may be defective if it breaks or malfunctions. A product may be defectively designed. A product-may be defective because it lacks adequate warnings or instructions.
Arizona law imposes "strict liability" against those responsible for putting the defective product on the market. For example, if a person involved in a one-vehicle accident is injured because the seat belt did not function properly, there may be a claim against the manufacturer of the car and seat belt. If a person is injured on the job because of a dangerous and defective piece of machinery, there may be a product liability claim against the manufacturer and seller of the machinery. A dangerous medication that causes injury may expose the drug company to strict liability.
