When you purchase a consumer product, you have the right to expect it will work as advertised. Even more importantly, you have the right to expect it will work safely – if you use the product as it's supposed to be used, it shouldn't result in a personal injury.

Types of Defective Product Cases
Every case is unique, and we will thoroughly investigate your defective product case in order to determine the cause of your injury and the liable party. We do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to the law – we know you deserve an approach that is tailored to the unique circumstances of your case.
However, most defective product cases fall into three broad categories:
- Design flaws: In these cases, the product was dangerously flawed from its inception. There was a significant flaw in the design of the product that made it unacceptably dangerous. This design flaw should have been caught long before the product reached market.
- Manufacturing flaws: In these cases, the design is basically sound, but something went awry with the manufacturing process and created a dangerous product. This is often the result of sub-par materials being used or corners being cut in an effort to slash costs.
- Misleading advertising: Finally, there are cases where a product was soundly designed and manufactured, but was advertised inappropriately. A company will often market a product as capable of doing something it's not actually capable of doing – and when a consumer uses the product in that way, he or she suffers an injury. In some cases, a company does not include proper warnings about a product's dangers in its marketing.
Arkansas Product Liability Laws
In the state of Arkansas, the statute of limitations for defective product law is three years. However, the clock doesn't start until you discover – or should have known – about the connection between the product and your injury.
The state of Arkansas uses a comparative negligence system, which means any verdict you win will vary based on the amount of “blame” assigned to each party. For example, if the award is $100,000 and it's determined that you are 10 percent responsible for your injuries, you will receive only $90,000.
Our firm will be happy to answer any additional questions about defective products you might have. We have decades of experience with defective product litigation, and you can trust us to provide you with the skilled representation you deserve.
