Product Liability Attorney in Mesa
Product liability law provides the victims of dangerous products with legal recourse for any injuries suffered. Generally, a product is required to meet the ordinary expectations of a consumer. A product that has an unexpected defect or danger, doesn’t meet consumers’ ordinary expectation. Depending on the type of defect, a number of different parties may be held liable for any injuries that result from the use of a defective product. For example, if a flaw in the manufacturing process creates a dangerous defect, the manufacturer may be held liable.
Statues of Limitation for Product Liability Cases:
- A product liability action as defined in section A.R.S. §12-681 shall be commenced and prosecuted within the period prescribed in section A.R.S. §12-542, except that no product liability action may be commenced and prosecuted if the cause of action accrues more than twelve years after the product was first sold for use or consumption, unless the cause of action is based upon the negligence of the manufacturer or seller or a breach of an express warranty provided by the manufacturer or seller.
