Consumers expect the goods they buy to be safe to use. However, sometimes, a defective product causes injury. Someone who is hurt by a defective product may file a claim for damages against the manufacturer, designer, or seller.

If you or a loved one were harmed by a malfunctioning or unreasonably dangerous item, consider calling an Augusta defective products lawyer. A seasoned personal injury attorney could file suit on your behalf under a theory of product liability to obtain compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, out-of-pocket costs, and pain and suffering.

Types of Product Defects

A plaintiff in a product liability case must show that the product that injured them was unreasonably dangerous. A product that is unreasonably or unexpectedly dangerous must fall outside the ordinary expectations of consumers and thus form the basis of a product liability lawsuit.

There are three types of product defects that can potentially be investigated by an Augusta defective goods attorney. This includes design, manufacturing, and marketing defects.

Design Defects

A design defect is an inherent design flaw that renders a product unreasonably dangerous. Examples include unduly flammable products, small toys that present a choking hazard, and mechanical defects in motor vehicles, such as faulty airbags.

Manufacturing Defects

A manufacturing defect is a mistake that occurred somewhere in the manufacturing process. An Augusta defective products lawyer may allege that, although a product is perfectly safe as designed, an error in the manufacturing process caused it to be unreasonably unsafe.

Marketing Defects

Common with prescription medications, lawsuits premised on marketing defects typically allege that a product had an inherent danger that its manufacturer failed to warn about. Notably, a manufacturer cannot be held liable for failing to warn about a product’s obvious safety risks, such as the sharpness of a knife or the danger of using a ladder. They also may not be held liable if the improper use of a product that led to an injury.

Recovering Damages in Augusta

A defective product could seriously injure someone and dramatically alter the course of their life. The amount of compensation that a plaintiff in a product liability case might receive will depend on a variety of factors, such as the extent of their injuries, whether they can continue to work and earn a living, and whether they must endure long-term pain and suffering. An Augusta attorney could account for all damages caused by the defective product in pursuit of a fair recovery.

In Georgia, a plaintiff’s damage award could be reduced if they were partially at fault for their injuries. For example, if a plaintiff was 20 percent responsible for the injury, the damage award might be reduced by that percentage. Additionally, Georgia is a modified comparative negligence state. Therefore, a plaintiff who was 50 percent or more at fault could be barred from receiving compensation altogether.

Contact an Augusta Defective Products Attorney Today

A product that is dangerous or defective may seriously harm a consumer. The law of product liability establishes various ways for anyone injured by a product to obtain compensation from the manufacturer or other parties. Contact an Augusta defective products lawyer if a dangerous item has harmed you or someone in your family.
