Defective Product Design – Arizona Product Liability Lawyer

Defective Design – Arizona Product Liability Attorney - Arizona Burg SimpsonAccidental injuries send millions of Americans to the hospital every year. A lot of those are a result of defective consumer products that – for one reason or another – leave their users seriously injured. If a consumer product has left you seriously injured, get in touch with a product liability attorney as soon as possible.

According to the National Safety Council, the home consumer products most responsible for injuries include:

  • Floors/flooring materials
  • Stairs/steps
  • Beds
  • Bicycles
  • Knives

Product liability lawsuits are incredibly complex and can be extremely expensive. Burg Simpson is a product liability law firm that has successfully managed hundreds of product liability cases over the last 40 years. If you have been seriously injured in an accident caused by a defective consumer product, call a Burg Simpson product liability lawyer in Arizona at 602-777-7000 or complete a Free Case Evaluation form now.

Defective products fall into one of three common classifications:

  • Design defects: These are defects that occur when a product’s original design makes it fundamentally hazardous. Defects in design exist independent of the manufacturing process. These defects typically end up with these products being recalled by either a state or federal regulator, or the manufacturer.
  • Manufacturing defects: The manufacturing process can also introduce a defect in a consumer product. Most of the time, these manufacturing flaws only affect a small portion of a corporation’s products.
  • Failure-to-warn defects: Manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers also can be held legally responsible when they fail to warn consumers that the product that they are buying can be inherently dangerous, even if it is used properly. These “failure-to-warn” issues can transform a properly designed and manufactured item into a dangerous product.

 If defective consumer product has left you or a family member seriously injured, you might be able to file a product liability lawsuit. Get in touch with Burg Simpson Arizona and speak with a Phoenix product liability attorney quickly by calling 602-777-7000.

In most states, a company is responsible for a design defect when a foreseeable risk existed even when the product was manufactured and used as originally designed. Typically, plaintiffs must prove the risk could have been mitigated with the simple adoption of a reasonable alternative design, which was:

  • Practical
  • Economically realistic
  • Not contrary to the product’s original purpose

Call our Burg Simpson Arizona office at 602-777-7000 or fill out our Free Case Evaluation Form here if a badly designed consumer product has left you or a loved one seriously injured.
