Determining Liability for Injury Caused by Defects
Under Arizona law, a defective product’s designer or manufacturer may be liable for defective product injury or death under three different legal theories of liability:
Negligence. A manufacturer may be liable for injury or wrongful death caused by failure to exercise ordinary care in manufacturing or designing car parts, drugs, children’s toys or other products, resulting in:
- Defective design of the product
- Failure to adequately test and inspect the product
- Failure to provide adequate instructions, warnings and labels on the product
- Failure to issue an adequate recall notice concerning the product
Strict Liability. A manufacturer may be held liable for injury or death, even without proof of negligence, for defective products that are unreasonably dangerous. Products must be safe for consumers to use in a reasonable way and for the product’s intended purpose.
Breach of Warranty. Arizona law recognizes liability for defective products that fail to meet express or implied warranties that accompany the product. These include:
- Implied warranty of merchantability. The product must be fit for the purposes intended by the seller.
- Implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose. The product must be suitable for the buyer’s intended use, which the seller knew or could foresee.
If you think the seller or designer of your automobile, toy, or equipment may be liable for your defective product injury, contact Christopher J. Zachar as soon as possible. Strict time frames and statutes of limitation for bringing a defective product claim mean you should act quickly. Failure to timely file a claim could result in your losing forever your right to bring a defective product injury claim.
