Tifton Product Liability Attorneys Helping Those Injured by Defective Products
If you have suffered a severe injury due to using a dangerous product, you may be entitled to compensation. Unfortunately, these cases can be extraordinarily complex and are not easy to pursue. The Tifton product liability attorneys at Hudson Injury Firm can help you build a successful case so you can get the compensation you need.
What Is a “Defective” Product?
In the context of a product liability case, “defective” does not mean “broken.” Instead, a defective product is one that is unreasonably dangerous when used for its intended purpose. For example, the following may be considered defective products:
- An arthritis medication that can cause a heart attack even when taken as instructed
- Toys coated in lead paint
- Airbags suddenly and unexpectedly deploy
- A vape pen explodes
Tifton product liability attorneys work with people who have been unexpectedly injured by a product to help them get the compensation they deserve.
Three Types of Product Defects
There are three ways a product may be considered defective:
- Design defects: this is when the product is unsafe for consumers by virtue of its design.
- Manufacturing defects: this is when the product is rendered unsafe as a result of the manufacturing process.
- Inadequate instructions/Failure to warn: this is when the product’s instructions do not adequately explain how to safely use the product, or the product does not include important warnings about risks associated with using the product.
A single product may be defective in more than one way. For example, a ladder could suffer from a defective design that makes it unsafe on wet surfaces. The instructions may also fail to provide clear directions on how to set the ladder up properly. If someone were injured while using the ladder, they may be able to prove the product was defective by design and due to its inadequate instructions.
How Tifton Product Liability Attorneys Help Injured Consumers in Georgia
If an unsafe product has injured you, you may be entitled to compensation. Unfortunately, product liability cases are complicated for non-lawyers to pursue successfully. One reason is that product liability cases can be highly technical and require a significant amount of time for research and collecting evidence. Most non-lawyers do not know how to determine whether or not their product was defective. Experienced Tifton product liability attorneys know what evidence they need to prove the product was defective.
Another reason is that product liability claims often involve corporate entities structured to minimize exposure to legal claims. Even identifying the responsible corporation can be complicated. In addition, those corporate entities are represented by defense attorneys who will take advantage of your lack of expertise.
Tifton product liability attorneys also help clients to document the following components of a claim:
- Your medical bills
- Any income you lost
- Your pain and suffering
