Understanding Product Liability Claims

product liability claims in Georgia Tens of thousands of people are injured by defective products each year in the United States, many of them right here in Georgia.

If a defective product hurt you or someone you love, you may have grounds for a product liability claim. This type of personal injury civil lawsuit allows victims to seek compensation for injuries and other losses related to the use of faulty or dangerous products.

Under Georgia law, a product that causes injury may be deemed defective due to:

  • Design. The design includes a defect that renders the product unreasonably dangerous, regardless of the quality of manufacturing.
  • Manufacturing. The product may have been assembled incorrectly by the manufacturer or made of poor-quality, unsafe, or improper components.
  • Lack of warning. The product failed to include notices informing consumers of foreseeable harms that could occur as a result of its use.

Designers, manufacturers, marketers, distributors, and sellers are required to ensure their products are safe for consumers when used as intended—otherwise, they could potentially be held liable for accidents and injuries that result. Who’s named as the defendant in a product liability lawsuit varies depending on the circumstances of the case.

Georgia product liability claims commonly involve products such as:

  • Vehicles
  • Tires
  • Airbags
  • Tools
  • Medications
  • Medical devices or instruments
  • Toys and childcare items

Individuals injured by defective products can pursue damages for medical expenses, wages lost while out of work recovering from their injuries, pain and suffering, and other losses related to the defective product.

However, before victims can obtain compensation, their defective product attorneys must show the product in question was defective or featured insufficient warnings, and that those defects were the proximate cause of the injuries.
