Injuries By Defective Products

Legal Assistance in West Georgia

Consumers should be able to put trust into the products they purchase and know that they are safe when used as designed. Sadly, we hear of cases in the news almost daily where products are unsafe or have been recalled. In some cases, the people who purchased these products are severely injured or even killed due to the negligence of the manufacturer or seller.

Filing a Product Liability Claim

Product liability is the area of law that mandates manufacturers, designers, and suppliers to pay for injuries caused by hazards and defects in the products they sell. Any individual or party involved in a defective product’s chain of distribution can be held accountable in a product liability lawsuit. Common examples of product liability cases include vehicle rollovers, airbag injuries, infant and child automobile safety seats, unsafe baby furniture and toys, and electrical injuries.

You can file a lawsuit against a manufacturer if you can prove the following:

  • The product you purchased was defectively manufactured
  • The product you purchased was defectively designed
  • The product you purchased failed to provide warnings and instructions
