Arizona Product Liability

Motor Vehicles – Product Liability Attorney – Arizona

Motor Vehicle Product – Product Liability Lawsuit - Arizona Burg SimpsonWhile consumer watchdog Ralph Nader warned Americans about the shady practices of auto manufacturers in 1965 in his book, “Unsafe at Any Speed,” it was not until Ford Pintos started exploding in the mid-1970s that automakers started being held responsible for their products. If you have been seriously injured because of a flaw in the design of your car or truck, talk to a product liability lawyer quickly.

Claims regarding defective motor vehicles are typically filed over:

  • A dangerous design: This includes motor vehicles – or parts – that are inherently dangerous. These design flaws go undetected for months or even years.
  • Defective manufacturing: This includes motor vehicles or vehicle parts that have been incorrectly manufactured.

If a flawed motor vehicle design has left you or seriously injured, get in touch with a Burg Simpson product liability attorney in our Phoenix office at 602-777-7000 or fill out our Free Case Evaluation form today.

Some of the most frequently cited defects in motor vehicle product liability cases include:

  • Airbag failure and/or improper passenger restraint system
  • Aftermarket modifications
  • Brake failure
  • Drivers’ manuals with inadequate instructions/warnings
  • Electrical issues, including fire hazards
  • Roof crush
  • Tires
  • Unintended acceleration
  • Vehicle instability (increase rollover risk, for example)

If you have been seriously injured by a defective product that lacked proper warnings or instructions, get in touch with Burg Simpson and talk to a Phoenix product liability attorney immediately by calling 602-777-7000.

In cases of product liability involving motor vehicles, there are a number of potential defendants you may be able to pursue along the supply and distribution chain, such as:

  • Manufacturer
  • Auto parts manufacturer
  • Shipping companies
  • Car dealership or automotive supply shop
  • Used car dealerships

Claims must generally meet a strict liability standard, which requires that the plaintiff proves:

  • The vehicle or one of its components had an “unreasonably dangerous” defect caused the injury. This can be in the design, the manufacturing process, or even through a failure to warn.
  • The defect caused an injury while the vehicle was being used in a way that it was meant to be.
  • The vehicle was not substantially altered from its original condition.

If you have been seriously injured by a defective car or truck, contact Burg Simpson Arizona today by calling 602-777-7000.
