Do I Have An Eligible Product Liability Case?
If you suffered injuries while using a product as intended by the manufacturer and as described on the accompanying label or package, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim to recover damages. However, because every case has unique circumstances, we recommend that you first contact one of our defective products lawyers at Phillips Law Group.
We are prepared to review the specifics of your potential claim to determine whether you may have an eligible products liability case. This consultation does not obligate you to hire us, but it does provide you with free information that can help you to find out more about your potential legal options.

What Types of Product Defects Are There?
In product liability cases, we typically encounter one of three types of defects:
- Defective design”“To determine whether there is liability for a defective design, your attorney will need to establish that the manufacturer knew ”“ or should have known – that the design could cause an injury and that they could have implemented another design that was cost-effective, safer and would still allow the product to be used as intended.
- Manufacturing defect”“ These types of defects occur during the manufacturing process and can affect one or more batches until the error is detected and fixed.
- Marketing defect”“ When a product is sold without clear product instructions or warnings to ensure that consumers know how to use it safely, the manufacturer may be liable for any resulting damages.
In addition to manufacturers, product distributors, wholesalers and retailers may also share responsibility for injuries sustained because of a defective product. Because there are multiple parties who could be liable and it is challenging to establish negligence, your potential claim may benefit from the experience of one of our qualified product liability lawyers.

What Damages Can I Pursue in a Products Liability Case?
Our Lake Havasu City product liability attorneys need to fully understand the type of products liability case you may have and what other contributing factors may have caused your injuries. We can discuss your potential claim in a free consultation, but essentially, we need to be able to prove negligence by:
- Establishing that you were injured because of a defective product
- Providing evidence of the defect
- Proving that you were injured while using the product as the manufacturer intended
Assigning a specific monetary amount to any claim requires a thorough understanding of these and all other contributing factors.
You may be able to pursue the following damages for the injuries you suffered:
Compensatory Damages ”“ Any tangible expenses that are directly related to the injuries you sustained. This could include:
- Lost wages if you are unable to work while recovering
- Any present or ongoing medical expenses
- Reduced earning capacity if you are unable to return to your former job
- Physical therapy
- Emergency services
- And more
General Damages ”“ This refers to the physical and emotional toll of your injuries, such as pain and suffering, lost enjoyment of life, lost consortium, disfigurement and inconvenience.
Punitive Damages ”“ These are damages that are intended to punish rather than reward and are only awarded in cases where a defendant’s behavior is deemed as malicious or reckless.
Types of Product Liability Cases
In a defective products case, there are typically three types of liability:
Strict liability ”“ The majority of defective product cases are filed under the theory of strict liability. The plaintiff, or injured party, must provide evidence that the product is defective and the user sustained an injury because of the defect.
Negligence ”“ Carelessness that results in a defective product during the design or manufacturing of a product and may cause injury to a user. The injury must have been directly caused by the defect in the product.
Breach of Warranty ”“ There are generally two types of warranties when you purchase a product ”“ either an expressly stated warranty ”“ typically offered by the retailer or manufacturer in writing ”“ or an implied warranty, which implies safety when the product is used as the manufacturer intended.
Why Should I Hire a Defective Products Lawyer?
When injured victims hire a licensed attorney to manage their personal injury claim, they often receive a higher compensatory award than if they did not.
Our knowledgeable attorneys have an extensive understanding of product liability law and are dedicated to pursuing maximum compensation. We are prepared to handle all communication with insurance companies to protect your claim from attempts to devalue it or discredit you. We have a full staff of legal professionals with the resources to fully investigate your claim, gather supportive evidence and build a strong argument on your behalf.
Learn more about how we may be able to assist you in your potential claim. There is no financial risk, since we operate on contingency.
Deadline For A Personal Injury Claim
It is important to mention that most personal injury claims must be filed within two years from the date of the injury, according to Arizona’s statute of limitations. There are some exceptions to that filing deadline, and in some cases, that means filing within a significantly shorter time frame. For example, if you are considering pursuing a claim against a government entity, you must file notice of claim within 180 days of the injury.
If you are unsure when your deadline is, we highly recommend that you contact our office today. Any further delay could result in you missing your opportunity to file. Once the deadline for your claim passes, the courts are likely to bar your claim altogether.

Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
Jasmine helped me so so much I want to thank her ! And also Aaron , i was always scared after an accident , knowing I would have to deal with lawyers but not here . Luckily I’ve only been in 3 accidents but this time it was fast and easy . And i received all the treatments I needed to help me recover ! Thank you Jasmine and Aaron!
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
