If a defective product caused you or your property damages, you could find it difficult to deal with the losses the product caused. These losses can impact your life, leaving you with physical and emotional discomfort and impacting you financially.
You have the right to seek compensation from the liable party. Product liability cases can involve manufacturers, distributors, or sellers of the product causing injuries or illnesses. Kaine Law’s Norcross product liability lawyers can help you take on big companies and hold negligent corporations responsible for their reckless actions.
Types of Product Defects
If you were using the product as intended and suffered injuries, you could recover damages. There are three types of product defects: manufacturing error, design defect, and failure to warn of a hazard.
Proving all elements of negligence is essential to your case. A personal injury lawyer from Kaine Law can investigate your case and collect evidence to support how a defective product caused your injuries.
Errors made during manufacturing or production can create flaws resulting in the product being defective. If you claim a product was flawed because of an error in making it, you must prove how. An example would be a tea kettle that developed a hairline crack during manufacturing.
These errors involve the product’s concept and design, even though it was manufactured correctly. This could affect all the products in a particular line, as opposed to just one product. An example would be a lawnmower blade that detaches when it spins too fast.
Failure to Warn of a Hazard
A product’s liability to warn users about the product is a little different from a defective product. For example, a product’s labeling is missing information, lacks warnings, has incorrect instructions, or risks consumers’ safety due to fake advertisements.
Some companies prepare for product liability and have insurance protecting the manufacturer, distributor, or seller.

- Breach of Duty: the careless action or inaction of the responsible party resulted in a dangerous situation.
- Causation: the responsible party’s negligence directly caused the damages you are trying to recover.
- Damages: the amount of compensation for the medical bills, physical and emotional injuries, property damage, and lost income you suffered due to the accident.
How Quickly Do I Need to File a Lawsuit?
In Georgia, O.C.G.A § 9-3-33 states you have two years from the accident date to file a personal injury lawsuit. Two years can go quicker than you expect.

What Is My Gwinnett County Product Liability Case Worth?
Your case’s value will depend on the damages you incurred. When a product you bought breaks and injures you, you can’t return the product to get your money back. Instead, you have injuries and damages leaving you with extensive bills. Our attorneys fight for your right to recover the maximum amount of compensation while you recover from your injuries and damages.
Damages include both economic and non-economic losses, such as:
- Medical costs, including both past and future medical care and rehabilitation, and your medical needs for the rest of your life
- Costs to cover living with a disability from an injury that requires a significant change to how you live. Recoverable damages could also include making changes to your home to make it wheelchair-accessible or costs of in-home nursing care
- Income lost because of missed shifts while you were injured and recovering from the accident. If your injuries resulted in reduced earning capacity, our attorneys can help calculate the value of projected future lost income.
- Repair or replacement of property damage
- Pain and suffering from any mental or physical discomfort or emotional stress, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Loss of enjoyment of life if you can no longer enjoy activities because your injuries prevent you from doing so
- Temporary/permanent disability
While it usually isn’t difficult to value your economic damages, placing a monetary value on non-economic losses is another story. However, your lawyer can use one of a few methods to value your intangible damages accurately.
