If you are a Stockbridge resident dealing with the aftereffects of using a faulty consumer product in Stockbridge, you could receive compensation by holding the manufacturer or the store where you bought the product financially liable for your losses. A Stockbridge personal injury lawyer with Kaine Law can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Whenever you buy a consumer product, you expect that the manufacturer has taken the appropriate steps to ensure the product is safe for use. You have that expectation because stores and manufacturers have a legal obligation to make sure their products pose no unnecessary risk to consumers. When manufacturers and stores fail to meet that obligation, it can have severe consequences for consumers. Kaine Law can fight for your right to collect damages.
How Can Our Stockbridge Product Liability Lawyer Help You?
Product liability cases are not always easy to prove. That’s because most manufacturers have a large legal team that gets paid to shield them from damages in any product liability case. They also usually have a liability insurance carrier with the same mission. Even in what appears to be a straightforward case, going up against a combination of the manufacturer’s legal team and its insurance carrier by yourself can be a daunting task.
That’s because the legal team and the insurer could be playing defense against you. They want to keep your payout as low as possible. They could accomplish this by denying liability and concealing information that may reveal evidence of negligence on their client’s part. A Stockbridge product liability attorney from Kaine Law can gather evidence to help you meet the legal standard for claiming damages in a product liability case.
The first part of that standard is demonstrating that the manufacturer in question did not follow Georgia’s “duty of care” requirement when it made the faulty product that hurt you. Then, we can show that the failure to adhere to this requirement caused you to suffer injuries. Lastly, we can help make a persuasive case that the manufacturer should be held accountable for the injuries and damages you suffered as a result of its negligence.

How Long Do You Have to Demand Damages in a Georgia Product Liability Case?
Making sure you file your demand for damages is another critically important task a product liability lawyer can help you with. Georgia law places limits on how long you have to demand damages after a faulty product hurts you. If you don’t file your case within the 10-year “statute of repose” (O.C.G.A. § 51-1-11), you may lose your right to demand damages from the manufacturer. Kaine Law will file your case before this expiration date.
Although you have 10 years to file your case, we strongly suggest consulting with us as soon as possible if you believe you have been hurt by a defective product. Once we make our demand, the manufacturer is legally barred from destroying or hiding evidence that may prove their negligence. The longer you wait to file the case, the more likely it becomes that vital evidence may be lost or destroyed.
