Arizona Product Liability

A defective consumer product has left you or a loved one seriously injured. You have to ask:

Did the product feature an appropriate warning?

Generally speaking, there are three ways a product can be considered defective: by design, by construction, or through its marketing.

  • Design flaws: These occur when a manufacturer fails to remove an inherent hazard in the product. Defective products, once they’re revealed, are normally recalled either by the manufacturer or the government. Design defect claims arise from these products whether the product was built to the manufacturer’s specifications or not.
  • Manufacturing defects: These occur when a properly designed product is somehow built improperly. These defects normally emerge within a small batch of products.
  • Marketing defects: These flaws, which can also be called “failure to warn,” exist when the manufacturer fails to clearly alert consumers to a product’s intrinsic hazards. If the product is dangerous when used as directed or is more dangerous than an ordinary consumer should expect, the manufacturer can be held liable.

The product liability law firm of Burg Simpson Arizona has been fighting for product liability victims for decades. Reach out to us at 602-777-7000 or fill out our Free Case Evaluation form right now.


If a consumer product has left you or a family member seriously injured, the first thing you need to do is speak with a lawyer trained in products liability claims.

It’s also critical to know that there are time limits for filing cases and that those time limits vary depending upon which state’s law applies to the case. Because of these different time limits, it’s essential that you don’t waste any time seeking legal advice.

You also have to consider that proving a consumer products liability case can be problematic and costly. Often the manufacturer is a major corporation with deep pockets available to push back against your claim. You need to make sure you have experienced and established defective product lawyer helping handle your case. You can speak to us by filling out our Free Case Evaluation form.


Under Arizona law, if you or a loved one has been injured by a dangerous, faulty or inadequately labeled product, you could be eligible for compensation for:

  • Economic losses, including past and future medical and rehabilitation expenses, lost income, lost earning potential, and out-of-pocket costs.
  • Non-economic losses, which can include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, mental and emotional distress, and inconvenience.
  • Permanent impairment and/or disfigurement.
  • Loss of consortium by an affected loved one.
  • The family of a person killed by a defective product also might entitled to file a wrongful death claim to recover damages.

It’s also worth noting that any evidence of pre-existing medical conditions could mitigate the value of your case. To get a better idea of the circumstances surrounding your case – and what they mean – contact Burg Simpson before it’s too late at 602-777-7000.
