Understanding Auto Product Liability
No law requires auto product manufacturers to guarantee the safety of its customers. Federal regulations do, however, require that manufacturers exercise a reasonable degree of care in the designing, manufacturing, and marketing of their products. Reasonable care describes the amount of prudence an ordinary enterprise would use in the creation of automobile parts.
Failure to fulfill the proper standard of care could make the manufacturing company liable for related damages. Yet consumer rights extend beyond the legal theory of negligence and into strict product liability for defect part claims. Federal laws hold companies strictly liable for their products, even without evidence of negligence.
If a product causes an injury, the manufacturing company could be financially responsible for the victim’s damages, even if the company did not do anything wrong. Creating an item with an inherent flaw could be enough to make the company liable for injuries. As a victim, you could receive compensation for your damages even without proving negligence.
Proving a Product Liability Claim in Arizona
Auto product liability claims require fewer elements of proof than typical personal injury lawsuits. Thanks to the rules of strict product liability, most victims will not have to prove the manufacturer was negligent, only that its automotive product was defective and unreasonably dangerous.
A Phoenix car accident lawyer from Gallagher & Kennedy can review your case and help you determine whether the rules of strict liability will apply to your case. If not, an attorney may still be able to file a claim based on negligence against the manufacturer.
