Atlanta Defective Product Attorney
When you purchase or use any type of product, you have a right to expect that it is safe. Tires should not explode. Accelerator pedals should not stick. Foods and medication you ingest should not be tainted. The train or bus you commute on to work should carry you and the other passengers safely to your destinations. And the pain patch administered to you in the hospital should contain the correct dose of the correct medicine.

Understanding products liability and how it works
Injuries caused by defective parts such as tires or products such as mislabeled drugs, are covered by products liability law. Where a designer, manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer sells a product that causes a foreseeable or preventable injury, the parties who caused the injuries can be found liable for damages.
When a consumer is injured by a product, liability can be determined by analyzing whether the injury was caused by the manufacturing process used in making the product, the design of the product, or the marketing of the product. To have a successful outcome in a negligence case, your attorney must prove:
- The product that harmed you was either not suitable for sale, or not reasonably suited for its stated use
- It can be shown to be the cause of your injury
- You suffered actual damages
In products liability cases, experts can be used to determine the extent of the client’s injuries, analyze the product to understand how the injury was caused, and explain why the injured party is entitled to damages. A skilled products liability attorney knows the type of expert witnesses to hire to best prove your damages so that you can recover the maximum amount for your claim.
