In Georgia, products liability cases come in many forms but are generally classified as either (1) manufacturing defects, (2) design defects, (3) breach of express or implied warranties, (4) failure to warn, and (5) failure to adequately test and inspect.
One of the most common and deadly defective products is a motor vehicle. Defects such as seatbelt failures, airbag failures, roof crush, seat back failures, ignition switch defects, rollovers, post collision fuel-fed fires, defective automatic transmissions, and unintended acceleration can often lead to catastrophic and deadly injuries.
Perhaps the most tragic products liability cases involve dangerous children’s products such as defective cribs, strollers, car seats, magnetic toys, and baby slings. When we buy products for our children, we are entitled to products that are safe and free from defects that can harm our innocent and defenseless loved ones. Manufacturing and selling a dangerous product that can harm a child is an inexcusable offense of any company.

Other examples of products liability cases include unwholesome and adulteration food, dangerous prescription drugs, defective ladders, dangerous furniture, defective power tools, tree stands, faulty tires, and defective all-terrain vehicles.
All too often, product manufacturers look for the cheapest and most expedient way to get their products on the market. Profits should never take precedent of safety. If you or a loved one have been injured by a defective product, call Joel today for your free case review and consultation.
