Product Liability in Georgia
What is Product Liability?
When you purchase a product, one of the most basic rights you have as a
consumer is the right to be safe when using it. Product liability often
refers to a legal claim or lawsuit in which an individual alleges that
a product malfunctioned, failed to properly work or was too dangerous,
resulting in one or more persons to suffer severe injuries or even death.
Types of unsafe product defects include:
Design defects – when something in the design of the product is dangerous
Manufacturing defects – when the product has a flaw or defect that is not part of the
design, but occurred during the manufacturing or assembly
Marketing defects – when the product is improperly labeled and doesn’t contain
adequate safety precautions or instructions
What Kind of Proof is Required in Product Liability Cases?
The main indication of any product liability case is proof that the debated
product was “defective” and that such defective conditions
directly caused the injuries or death suffered by an individual or loved
one. An individual must also demonstrate that the product remained in
the same condition when it left the manufacturer’s facility, received
by the seller and purchased by the user. Lastly, an individual must establish
that the product was being used in a manner which was intended or reasonably
foreseeable to the manufacturer.
