Who is responsible if I am injured due to a defective product?

There are three primary types of product liability claims:

  • Failure to warn: Certain products require warning labels such as choking hazard warnings, warning against improper use of a product, and more. When these labels are not present, consumers can unknowingly use the product the wrong way which can result in injuries.
  • Negligent product design: Product designers have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their customers. When this does not occur, this will increase the chances of a serious accident occurring. If you have been injured by a defective product design, you may have a valid product liability claim.
  • Negligent product manufacturer: A product blueprint is created to ensure the product design is safe for use. However, sometimes manufacturers will divert from this blueprint which can lead to unsafe product design. This can cause accidents and injuries by its users.

How long will I have to sue for an injury due to a defective product?

The statute of limitations for product liability claims in Georiga is generally two years in Georgia. This means that you will have two years from the date of your injury to take legal action against the party who is responsible for causing your injuries. Failure to file your claim within two years from this date may result in you being permanently barred from suing. The sooner you bring attention to your claim, the better.
