Do I Need an Atlanta Defective Product Lawyer?
Corporations, whether large or small, are responsible for accounting for the safety of consumers. When they fail to do so and people are harmed as a result, the victims often do not know where to turn, as it can seem nearly impossible to take on a company on their own. This is why they often turn to a knowledgeable Atlanta injury lawyer who can work to effectively present their case in pursuit of the compensation they need to heal. No matter the size or name of the corporation, our firm is ready to be your staunch legal advocate through every step of the process ahead.
Types of Defective Product Cases
There are three primary types of product liability claims. In most cases, when someone is harmed by a defective product, they will either sue on the grounds of a negligent product designer, a negligent product manufacturer, or the failure to warn of a potential safety hazard an otherwise safe product may pose.
If our firm determines that you were harmed by a product that was unsafely designed (and that there was a safer and economically feasible means of designing the product) you should have a valid product liability claim. If we can prove that the product manufacturer diverted from a previously safe blueprint and caused the product to become dangerous for consumer use, you should also have a valid defective product claim. Finally, if we can prove that the product did not come with a clear warning label regarding any potential safety hazards it may pose and you were injured as a result, you should also have a valid claim.
Ensure that you document all facts surrounding the incident, such as by taking pictures of the product, obtaining witness statements, and more. You should also seek medical treatment immediately after your accident and ensure that you do not throw the defective product away, as we can use the product itself as a means to prove your personal injury claim.
Statute of Limitations for Defective Product Injury Claims
The statute of limitations for defective product injury claims in Georgia is, generally, two years, which means that if you’ve been harmed by a defective product, you must not wait any more than two years from the date of the incident to sue.
