Atlanta Product Liability Attorneys
We Hold Negligent Manufacturers Accountable
As a consumer, you should be able to expect that any product you buy is reasonably safe to use. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Some products reach store shelves before they have been properly tested or labeled, leaving consumers at risk of suffering serious, or even fatal injuries. If you or someone you love has been hurt by a dangerous or defective product, you have rights. Contact an Atlanta product liability lawyer at Pratt Clay LLC to learn more about your options.

Establishing Fault In A Product Liability Case
If you were injured by a dangerous or defective product, you may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit against the company that designed, manufactured, and/or sold the product. However, simply showing that you are injured is not enough. You must also be able to prove certain elements in your case in order to recover financial compensation.
In order to file a successful product liability claim, you must be able to show that:
- The product was “defective” at the time that you were injured.
- The defective condition of the product caused you to suffer harm.
- You were using the product as intended when you were injured.
- You have suffered actual damages as a result of your injuries.
Defective Products Examples
In order to prove that a product is “defective,” you must be able to show that the design is unreasonably dangerous, that it was negligently manufactured, or that it was improperly marketed. These are the three main types of product liability.
- Defective design: A product is inherently flawed because it was defectively designed. This means that, regardless of how carefully it is manufactured, labeled, or marketed, it will not be safe for consumers to use.
- Defective manufacturing: A product may be dangerous to consumers because of errors made in the manufacturing process. Defects can be caused by the use of low-quality materials or poor workmanship.
- Defective marketing: A product may be defective if it was improperly or deceptively marketed. Product manufacturers have a duty to warn consumers of potential risks by providing adequate warning labels.
When a designer, manufacturer, or seller fails to deliver a safe product, they can be held accountable. Those who have been injured by dangerous products may be entitled to damages for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
