When consumers buy a product, they assume that it will work correctly when they use it properly. Sometimes, however, the exact opposite occurs, and a product malfunction leads to serious personal injuries.
If you or someone in your family has suffered injuries because of a product that malfunctioned, the distributor or the manufacturer of that product might be to blame.
A product liability lawyer in Atlanta can discuss what occurred and might be able to file a claim on your behalf.
Manufacturing, Design, and Warning Defects
Sometimes, products that are sold on the market malfunction because of a defect in the manufacturing process. At other times, the product is not properly designed, resulting in a defect that causes the product to malfunction when the consumer uses it. Finally, the product might contain a warning defect if there are inherent dangers associated with product use, but no warning is included on the product. A warning defect could also exist if an appropriate warning is not placed on the product in such a way that the purchaser is likely to appreciate and notice it.
An Atlanta product liability attorney can examine your circumstances and determine if a product defect likely existed. If so, your lawyer could file a claim against the manufacturer and pursue economic and noneconomic recovery on your behalf.
