One of the greatest threats we all face is not only defective products, but the destruction of our rights by manufacturers of those products. Our goal here at Grabb & Durando is to help protect consumers from dangerous products, while holding manufacturers, distributors and vendors responsible for putting into the marketplace products that they knew or should have known were dangerous or defective. We are experienced product liability lawyers here in Tucson, protecting our community with aggressive representation.
In Arizona there are three situations which consumers may file a product liability claim. The first is if a product, component, or engineering design flaw causes injury or damage to property. This can cover anything from poorly executed engineering to defective packaging such as a prescription bottle that the child-proof cap failed and your children got sick from it as a result. As a consumer you deserve the peace of mind and confidence in purchasing products that are safe. When these products fail it can cause accidents, injury and even death.
The second situation is a defect in manufacturing such as a car part that might have been improperly installed. While the part itself wasn't defective or dangerous when it was produced, when the part was installed incorrectly it lead to accident, injury or even death.
The third example of product liability is the cases where there has been a failure to warn or the warning on the label misled the consumer to a behavior that lead to injury. Examples of this are a board game or toy that hasn't been labeled as dangerous for a younger child and your 2 year old chokes or hurts himself/herself, or a prescription that was mislabeled and your father took the wrong dosage. You trust the labels that were placed on these items and they led to accident and injury.
