When you purchase a product, you have a right to certain expectations regarding that product. The most important of those expectations is that the product will not hurt you. Surely, that's not too much to ask of a consumer product?
Unfortunately, it often is. Our Atlanta product liability attorneys have seen far too many instances of defective design and manufacturing to underestimate corporate negligence.
When you're hurt by a defective product, you have a right to pursue justice and compensation. Safe, effective products are the cornerstone of a functioning economy, and dangerous products undermine confidence.

Examples of Defective Products
Any consumer product can prove defective and cause injury, of course, but there are a few specific types of products which crop up quite often. For a number of reasons, defects in the design or manufacture of these products render them significantly more dangerous.
Our product liability attorneys have helped clients who have suffered as a result of:
- Defective drugs or medical devices
- Defective toys
- Defective vehicle parts
- Product recalls
- Electronic cigarette explosions
This is far from an exhaustive list, of course. Don't hesitate to contact our Atlanta product liability attorneys if you've been hurt by a product not on that list.

What To Do After Your Defective Product Injury
Products can prove defective for a few different reasons. Sometimes the problems are in design- the product was simply designed in a negligently dangerous fashion. Sometimes problems arise during the manufacturing process.
The question of cause will affect liability, but it doesn't change the pain you feel after suffering an injury caused by a defective product. But it's important in the aftermath of that injury to stay calm and protect your legal rights.
Do not get rid of the product. If at all possible, keep the product. Don't hurt yourself further in doing so, of course, but it's vitally important that you retain possession of the product itself. Our product liability attorneys have access to experts who can examine the product and determine if it's defective and what the origin of the defect was.
Gather any documentation you have regarding your purchase or acquisition of the product and bring it to your free consultation with our product liability lawyers. The sooner you speak with us, the easier it will be for us to investigate your injury and make a compelling case on your behalf.
