Injured by a Defective Product?

What Are Product Liability Cases?

When someone sustains an injury from a defective product, like a defective appliance or a malfunctioning toy, a number of parties may be held liable—including the manufacturer, the distributor, and the seller. Arkansas law defines a product liability claim as “all actions brought for or on account of personal injury, death, or property damage caused by or resulting from the manufacture, construction, design, formula, preparation, assembly, testing, service, warning, instruction, marketing, packaging, or labeling of any product.” Liability may be based on three types of failures:

Errors During the Manufacturing Stage

While building the product, the machines or builders could make an error that causes the product to be harmful to users. It is our job as your attorneys to prove that the manufacturers distributed a dangerous product. 

Flaws in the Product’s Design

If the product that caused you an injury was indeed manufactured correctly but was instead dangerously or negligently designed, we will need to prove that during your case. These cases can be complex. In these instances, we have to prove that just the way the product was designed was the sole reason for your injury, not the way that you were using it. We understand how difficult these types of cases can be, but we are determined to seek solutions that fit your needs. 

Failure to Warn of Potential Dangers

Some products can be inheritably dangerous, like cars, gardening tools, kitchen utensils, and the like. If the marketers or other parties do not properly communicate the hazards that can occur from using the product as intended and you are injured, you may be entitled to financial compensation. It is the marketer’s or manufacturer’s job to create disclaimers and warnings so that consumers will properly handle the products. If you believe a product that you used and caused you harm did not properly communicate the dangers that could come with it, contact our lawyers today in Little Rock. 

Arkansas Product Liability Statutes of Limitations

In the state of Arkansas, a victim of product liability has three years after the injury to take legal action against the responsible parties. If you have been injured, it is best to consult with our experienced attorneys as early as possible so that we can accurately document your injuries and take the necessary steps. No matter your particular situation, it’s important to consult with an attorney and learn about your rights so that you can hold the responsible parties accountable.
