When a consumer purchases a product, they expect it to meet certain standards of operation and safety. This is not always the case, though, and sometimes consumers are injured by a product that is defective in its design, manufacturing or warnings. A consumer can be seriously injured by a flawed product, regardless of the type of defect.
Therefore, when a consumer is injured by a flawed product, they can file a products liability lawsuit to recover compensation for their medical care, medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering, if necessary.
A product liability suit is filed against the liable party, which could be the product designer, product manufacturer or the seller of the product, depending on the facts of the case. Although there are numerous products that can be the subject of a products liability case, the most common are:
– Car or truck parts
– Household appliances
– Medical devices
– Children’s toys
– Food and beverages
If you have been injured as a result of a defective product, you may be entitled to receive compensation. To find an attorney who will fight for your rights, contact the Hurtig Law Group – Georgia today for your free consultation, by calling 800-902-9004 or by completing a contact form.
