Product Liability

Phoenix Product Liability Lawyer

Product Liability is the area of the law that deals with the liability of the manufacturer. Other parties could potentially be held accountable as well for the injury or harm of the victim. These claims require that certain circumstances are proven. These circumstances frequently involve manufacturing defects, design defects, and/or failure-to-warn marketing defects.

If you or a loved one have been injured by a product you own, it is important that you consult with a personal injury attorney. Our legal team works on a contingency fee. This means that you do not need to pay anything when you retain us unless we win your case. At that point, we would take a percentage of compensation as our attorney retainer fee. We offer free case evaluations to help you determine what your next steps need to be.

Types of Product Liability Claims

There are a lot of different types of claims that fall under the product liability category. Some of those product liability claims are: 

  • Defective Design: This claim would exist outside of the manufacturing of the product. The product could be manufactured perfectly, but the design and specifications of the product is dangerous and causes injury. 
  • Faulty Manufacturing: This claim would fall on the manufacturing of the product. If the product was not manufactured to the design specifications and then caused an injury, then a faulty manufacturing claim can be resented. 
  • Toxic Torts: This claim refers specifically to substances that are sold or used in the manufacture and creation of the product. If the chemicals that make up the product cause injury or harm to a consumer, then a toxic tort claim can be presented. 
  • Failure to Warn: These can be considered labeling defects. A failure to warn claim can be presented if harm or an injury occurs from a product that could have easily been avoided by the product having a warning label on them. 
  • Dangerous Toys & Recreational Equipment: This claim is considered a subcategory, but it is a major claim because it tends to affect younger children. When someone (more often a child) is injured or harmed because of the design or manufacturing of a toy or equipment (i.e. a swing set) then this claim can be presented.

What To Do After You Have Been Injured By A Defective Product

Once you are hurt by a defective product, it is common to be confused or overwhelmed. There are some time-sensitive steps that we recommend you take to make sure you're physically taken care of and your future claim is set up for success. Some of the steps you should take are:

  • Seek Medical Attention Immediately: If you are hurt by a product you own, it is important to get yourself medical attention. Not getting yourself checked out immediately can result in more serious injuries. The doctors that treat you will also provide documentation of your injuries that will help you in your claim.
  • Preserve the Product and Proof of Purchase: If it is possible, do not throw away the defective product. Store the product in a safe place until you are able to get medical attention and speak to an attorney. If you still have the packaging it came in, then you should preserve that as well. 
  • Contact The Wyatt Injury Law Team: Before you contact anyone or post anything on social media, contact our team first. Taking advantage of our free consultation will save you money in the long run and our team will handle your case from there.

I hired Justin to represent my daughter after we were in a car accident. Justin explained the whole process to me and made the process simple to understand. I highly recommend Justin to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer.

Justin is the best! His staff is amazing too! He's your go-to guy for all accident cases. My only complaint is that my wife thinks he's cute and it makes me uncomfortable. Lol. Thanks for the money Justin!

James O.

Justin was amazing dealing with a non-injury accident we experienced. He was able to get the at fault's insurance to pay despite the driver denying any wrong doing initially. He was quick to get a resolution for us so we could get repairs taken care of. Thanks, Justin!
