The manufacturer is likely liable when a dangerous or defective product causes injuries. However, injured victims can often pursue compensation claims or lawsuits against the product’s creator, maker, or distributor. This allows them to recover money for treatment, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Defects That Can Result in Product Liability
Product manufacturers are generally strictly liable for injuries that occur because of a problem with their product. In general, there are three different ways that a consumer product can be dangerous or defective. This includes:
When a problem is inherent in a product, each one produced will have the same dangers and risk of injury. The problem is with the product itself rather than the materials or labeling. Anyone who uses the product could suffer injuries because of the defect.
Defects in Manufacturing
Defects in manufacturing can affect only specific batches, or all products made. These defects often occur because of one of the materials in the product, such as a problem with the rubber compound used to make certain tires. This is why you often only hear of recalls that affect certain manufacturing locations or dates.
Missing or Inadequate Labeling
Product manufacturers must properly label their items. This includes easy-to-understand and complete instructions and warnings. When some issues and injuries occur because of confusing, missing, or inadequate labeling, this could support an insurance claim or lawsuit.

Damages Recoverable in a Product Liability Claim
When we seek compensation for our clients hurt by a defective product, we gather documentation of their expenses and losses and work with experts to establish their prognosis and future care costs. This allows us to determine the fair settlement range for their case and demand the liable party’s insurer provide an appropriate settlement.
The compensation in a typical Duluth product liability case could include the following:
- Medical care costs, current, and future
- Care and support costs for long-term injuries
- Income losses to date
- Reduced earning capacity and other future income losses
- Related expenses and losses
- Pain and suffering
- Other intangible damages
Under Georgia’s wrongful death statute, O.C.G.A § 51-4-2, surviving family members can pursue compensation if a victim passes away from their injuries. Georgia allows them to seek compensation for the “full value of the life of the deceased.” Our team can help you identify your recoverable damages, file a claim, and demand appropriate compensation based on the case facts.

How Our Defective Product Liability Lawyers Can Help Your Case
When we handle a claim or lawsuit for you, we take care of all aspects of your legal case. You can focus on healing and your physical recovery while we take the necessary steps to recover compensation. This includes:
- Investigating what caused your accident and injuries
- Identifying the liable party or parties
- Gathering evidence to show the product had a dangerous defect
- Identifying, documenting, and valuing your damages
- Providing guidance and representation during settlement negotiations
- Handling all necessary paperwork
- Making recommendations about when to accept a settlement
- Handling your lawsuit, if necessary
Under O.C.G.A. § 33-6-34, our team does not recommend settling for less than you deserve. You do not have to sign an agreement unless the insurer provides you with an appropriate payout. Instead, we have the option to sue the liable party.
We usually have up to two years from the injury date to begin this process per O.C.G.A § 9-3-33. However, there are exceptions, and you could have longer. Let us evaluate your case to learn for sure.
