When the recommended use of a consumer product results in a personal injury or wrongful death, you have the legal right to seek compensation for your injuries and related costs, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Disfigurement
  • Physical impairment
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property damage

Any person injured — or a relative of a person killed by a defective product — may sue the manufacturer of the defective product. Depending on the product and the type of injury caused, others within the product’s chain of distribution might also be liable for damages.

It often takes a complex legal argument to prove that a product is defective. Georgia product liability lawyer experienced in investigating and litigating liability cases represent clients who have cause to bring a lawsuit.

Your lawyer conducts a full investigation of the incident and asks experts to evaluate the product. Often a full investigation might include consulting scientists, engineers and other relevant experts regarding your injuries, the product and the relationship between your injuries and the product. The product’s design, manufacture, distribution and sale may also be reviewed. A manufacturer is liable not only for the product itself, but also for incorrect labeling of the product, improper instructions, or the failure to warn consumers of hidden dangers.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective product, contact a Georgia product liability lawyer to review your case.
