Filing a Product Liability Claim in Arkansas

Product manufacturers and others involved in the chain of distribution have a responsibility to create and sell products that are safe for consumer use. Unfortunately, many manufacturers prioritize profits over public safety—and the results can be disastrous.

If you or someone you love was harmed by a dangerous product, you could be entitled to compensation for your resulting medical bills, pain, suffering, lost income, and other damages. At Potts Law Firm, our Little Rock defective product lawyers have extensive experience handling all types of product liability claims, including both single-plaintiff and mass tort cases. To date, we have secured more than $1 billion in compensation for our clients.

What Is a “Dangerous” Product?

A product is typically considered “dangerous” if it poses some risk to the user. When a product is unreasonably dangerous, meaning the risks outweigh the benefits or the product poses an unknown risk to the user, it is usually considered “defective.”

Not all dangerous products are defective, and not all defective products are dangerous. For example, power tools are considered “dangerous,” as they pose a risk of injury to the user. However, when used correctly and as intended, power tools should not pose an unreasonable risk to the user. If a power tool is missing a safety guard or does not have warning labels, the user cannot know or prevent injury, even when using the power tool correctly. In this instance, the power tool would be considered defective.

Not all defective products pose a risk of injury to the user—but most do. If you were injured by a product, such as a power tool, there is a chance that the product was defective. We recommend that you discuss your legal rights and options with an experienced defective product lawyer, like those at Potts Law Firm.

The Three Types of Product Defects

There are three main types of product defects. These include:

  • Design Defects: Design defects include flaws that render the product unreasonably unsafe for typical use, even when it is manufactured correctly and has all warning labels, instructions, etc.
  • Manufacturing Defects: Manufacturing defects occur when a product is properly designed, but a flaw is introduced during the production phase, rendering the product unreasonably unsafe.
  • Labeling/Marketing Defects: Labeling/marketing defects refer to missing labels, such as instructions or safety warnings, as well as improperly advertised or marketed products.

Each of these types of product defects can result in a product that is extremely unsafe for consumer use, in turn leading to serious accidents, injuries, and deaths.

Examples of Common Dangerous Products

Any type of product can be dangerous or defective, but certain consumer products are more often the subject of product liability litigation than others.

Some examples of common dangerous and defective products include:

  • Auto defects, such as tire blowouts, faulty airbags and seatbelts, top-heavy vehicles, defective engine components, and poorly placed fuel systems
  • Drugs and medical devices, including antidepressants, diabetes drugs, heart medications, blood thinners, hip and knee replacements, pacemakers, IVC blood clot filters, and more
  • Children’s products, such as toys that are missing choking hazard warnings, faulty car seats, defective highchairs, contaminated baby powder, and poorly designed cribs
  • Electronic devices, including personal laptops and computers, tablets, cellphones, chargers, batteries, and electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes and vapes)
  • Toxic chemicals and other substances, such as household and industrial cleaners, detergents, dyes, pesticides, and herbicides, including Roundup
  • Household appliances, including faulty washers/dryers, water heaters, gas and electric stoves, garbage disposals, heaters and air conditioners, etc.
