Glendale Product Liability Attorney
Product liability is a complex area of law that deals with incorrectly manufactured or designed products that in turn cause harm to unsuspecting consumers. When someone is injured because of a defective product - whether it was designed wrong, manufactured improperly, or there wasn't adequate warning - then that company is responsible and can be held liable under the law.
Product Liability Law & How to Prove a Defective Product Injury Case
Product liability law in Arizona can get complicated. In order to prove that negligence did occur in a product liability case, you have to prove that the product in question was defective. There are three different ways in which you can prove that a product was defective that will allow for victims of product liability to receive fair compensation.
The first way to prove product liability is to illustrate that the design was indeed defective. Usually, in these kinds of product liability cases, if the design was defective, then many people were probably injured by the product. So, for instance, someone could be seriously injured by a defective product and, as a result, hires a product liability attorney. Through some investigative work, that attorney finds out that there have been many people throughout the country who have also been seriously injured by the same product.
Examples of product liability cases involving defective designs include when a car becomes dangerous because of the way it was designed, causing it to roll over when the driver makes a sharp turn, or when a seatbelt doesn't function properly and doesn't protect the driver. In these kinds of product liability cases, there are typically many people injured, not just a single individual.
The second way to prove a product liability case is to prove that the product was manufactured wrong. So, in these cases, the design of the product was fine, but somewhere in the warehouse or on the assembly line something went wrong and the product became damaged or defective. In these cases, there was most likely only one or two defective products manufactured, not hundreds or thousands. So you won't see the same pattern of injury that you'd see in cases involving defective designs.
The third way to prove a product liability case is to prove that there was a lack of warning on the product. This is the type of product that can be dangerous if it's not used properly and adequate warnings aren't included with the product. Some products used in certain types of situations (for example, using a hair dryer while you're in the bath tub) are dangerous to use and consumers must be properly warned about them.
