Defective, faulty and dangerous products cause injuries to victims every day; some injuries are minor, but some defects can lead to catastrophic injuries, or even wrongful death.
As consumers, we all trust that manufacturers and designers put safety at the heart of everything they do; they are obliged to make their products safe for proper use, and they are bound to provide adequate warnings and product labeling about the potential dangers or side effects of their products. But often that is not the case.
At Cunningham Law, we’ve obtained substantial product liability verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients injured by defective and dangerous products. In 2008 Matt Cunningham, as lead counsel in Mutuvi-Kavu v. Electrolux Home Products Inc., obtained one of the largest product liability verdicts in Arizona state history. An Arizona Pinal County jury rendered a unanimous verdict awarding the Plaintiffs, two brothers ages 12 and 3, and their parents $43,112,000.

From unsafe car parts like defective tires or fuel systems to household products and appliances, if you have been injured by a defective product let the experts at Cunningham Law bring a product liability claim against the manufacturer, designer or retailer.
Take this case for example; a 15-week-old infant suffered chemical burns after a dry cell battery leaked onto her head while she was seated within an infant cradle swing. The battery acid leaked from an unsealed overhead battery compartment. The case settled after formal mediation, but the terms of settlement are confidential.
Defective products ruin lives
Product manufacturers and designers have a duty of care to ensure that their products are safe for the use they were intended for, and that they are adequately labeled informing users of possible hazards. The personal injuries that defective products can cause can be life altering, leading to a significant change of lifestyle and massive additional costs for medical expenses and ongoing medical care.
Automatic doors slam shut for no reason, escalators malfunction causing people to fall, drug pumps fail, and faulty aircraft parts cause planes to crash. Potential product liability claims surround us every day.

The settlement terms are confidential.
