Why You Need a Defective Products Lawyer
If you were injured by a defective product, you may have a product liability claim for compensation. This type of case can be complex and is best handled by an experienced product liability lawyer. To demonstrate strict liability in Georgia, you must prove that:
- Injury or wrongful death occurred
- The product is unsafely designed, improperly made, or defective in some way
- The product was being used as it was intended to be used
- The defect of poor design of the product caused the injury or death
The last step is the most difficult to prove. It is not enough to show that you were injured and that the product was defective. You must also show that the defective product caused personal injury or death.
Other principles of product liability, such as negligence, may come into play in your claim. For your best chance of success, it is important to have an experienced Coweta County personal injury lawyer by your side.
Types of Product Defects
Consumer products can be defective, for product liability purposes, in any of three different ways:
- Design defects: In this case, the design of the product is inherently faulty, even before the product is manufactured.
- Manufacturing defects: An error or hazard was introduced during the manufacturing process or assembly of the product.
- Marketing defects: These are defects found in the label, warnings, or instructions included with the product. Manufacturers who fail to provide clear instructions and proper warning labels may be held liable for resulting injuries.
Who Is Liable?
Liability for a defective product that causes injuries lies with all sellers in the product distribution chain. This may include:
- The manufacturer of the product
- The component parts manufacturer
- The party that assembles or installs the product
- The wholesaler
- The retailer that supplied the product to the consumer
What Damages Can You Claim?
If a defective product caused your injuries, you may be entitled to recover compensatory damages – compensation for all economic and noneconomic losses suffered because of your injuries. These damages may include:
- Medical bills
- Physical therapy
- Wheelchairs, orthotic devices, and other items
- Lost income
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
