Product Liability Attorneys in Mesa
In order to prove a product liability case, you must first prove that the product was indeed defective. There are three ways in which to show that a product is defective that will allow for injured victims to receive fair compensation.
The first way to prove a product liability case is to show that the design is defective. Typically, if the design is defective, then this is the kind of product that hurts many people. In these kinds of cases, someone may be seriously injured by a product defect and then through the investigation of a skilled Mesa personal injury attorney, learns that the defective product has also injured other people throughout the United States. For example, many product liability cases involve cars that are dangerous because of a defective design that caused the vehicle to roll over during a quick turn, or a defective seatbelt that failed to protect the driver. In these kinds of cases, there are usually multiple people injured, not just one.
The second way to prove product liability is to show that the product was defectively manufactured. This means that the design was completely safe, but that a particular item came off the assembly line somehow damaged or defective. It also means that there might only be one product - not masses - that is defective and therefore dangerous. So in these particular cases, you won't see the pattern of injury and illness throughout Mesa and the U.S. that you would see with a defective design case. Instead, it simply means that one or two items out of thousands or even millions were manufactured defectively.
The third way that a product liability case can be proven is through lack of warning. This is the kind of product that is inherently dangerous without the proper warnings that are given to make sure that the product is used correctly and certain behaviors are avoided. Certain types of products used in certain types of situations (for instance, a hair dryer in a bath tub) are dangerous to use and consumers must be warned about them.
Rarely can an individual investigate product liability on their own. It's critical to find and hire a personal injury attorney who is experienced in product liability law. If you or someone you love has been injured because of a defective product, then it's going to take a lot of time and money upfront to investigate your claim and gather critical evidence. At The Husband & Wife Law Team, we have the resources and expert witnesses to properly investigate what caused your injuries and which parties are responsible under Arizona law.
Product liability is an area of the law that deals with improperly designed and manufactured or defective products that cause harm to consumers. When someone is injured as a result of using a company's unsafe product - whether it's a food item or a child's toy - then that company can be held liable under the law.
Even though defective products can cause a range of injuries, such as broken bones, brain injuries, burns, spinal cord injuries, and, in some cases, may even result in wrongful death, a product liability case is different from a personal injury case. Therefore, if you've been injured because of a defective product, it can be difficult and challenging to find the right attorney, one who is experienced in actual product liability cases and has in depth knowledge of the law.
Here at The Husband & Wife Law Team, we do not ask our clients to pay our fee upfront. Instead, we operate on a contingent basis, which means we don't get paid unless we win your case. We understand that most people cannot afford to pay a lawyer's regular hourly rate - especially when you consider the fact that a complicated product liability case will take hours of time for the lawyer, his or her paralegal, support staff, and expert witnesses to develop a strong case. Even though we are a considered one of Mesa's top personal injury attorneys and we've won cases for thousands of clients, we've still never had a client have to pay us out of their own pocket. Every dollar we've ever earned has come out of either a settlement that we have negotiated or out of a successful verdict that a jury has rendered.
We pay all the costs upfront on your behalf. If we win your case, then we get a percentage of the amount recovered. If we lose the case, though, then you don't have to pay us anything.
Product liability is a broad and complicated area of the law. But one element that has resulted in success time and time again in these kinds of suits is having an attorney who is experienced in product liability law. Such an attorney will understand the many ins and outs of product liability law and how it relates to your case. He or she will be able to draw upon their experience in the field to formulate a solid argument on your behalf and develop a strong case.
Remember, though, that for all product liability cases, there is a set amount of time in which you can file a personal injury claim. Once this time limit, or statute of limitations, has passed, no lawsuit may be filed.
At The Husband & Wife Law Team, we know how helpless, upset, frustrated, and angry you feel - on top of feeling let down by a company or manufacturer you trusted. But by filing a personal injury claim seeking financial compensation for you or your family member's injuries, you are sending an important message to the manufacturer who put you at risk. You are also sending a message to other companies who may be behaving in a similarly negligent manner.
