Butts County Product Liability Attorney
Product liability claims relate to consumer goods that – due to faulty design, manufacture, or labeling – leave the purchaser injured. It’s difficult to accept that the consumer good you plunked down money for leaves you injured instead of doing whatever it is you purchased it to do. If you, your child, or another family member is injured by a faulty consumer good, you shouldn’t put off consulting with an experienced Butts County product liability lawyer.
The Claim Process
Your product liability claim will not be exactly the same as anyone else’s, but all such claims follow a similar process. Ultimately, you will need to prove that the product in question was defective, and in order to do so, you must demonstrate that all of the following elements apply:
- When the accident in question happened, the consumer product was defective.
- This defect was the direct cause of the injury presented in your claim.
- The product that left you injured was in substantially the same condition that it was in at the time of its sale. This means that you or someone else didn’t modify the consumer good – thus negating or otherwise mitigating the manufacturer’s liability.
- The product that caused you to be injured was being used for the purpose it was intended to be used – or for another purpose that the manufacturer could have or should have foreseen.
Product liability claims can also be predicated on failure to warn, which means that the product in question can cause harm when used incorrectly or without adequate care and that the manufacturer failed to address this matter with adequate warning signs and/or safety instructions.
