Macon Product Liability Attorneys
Brands are always seeking to build trust from consumers. When consumers purchase goods from a trusted brand, they rarely think about the product malfunctioning and potentially injuring them.
Unfortunately, injury from a product is common. Product-related injuries are often caused from a design error, issues during the manufacturing process, or failure to provide appropriate instructions or warnings for proper use.
Product Liability Claims
It is the manufacturer’s responsibility to ensure that each consumer has a safe and reliable experience with their products. If injuries occur and the consumer was properly using the product, the manufacturer and distributor should be held accountable.
Some of the most common examples of product liability claims are:
- Auto accidents from blown tires or a faulty braking system
- Injury while operating lawn equipment
- Pharmaceutical errors from the physician’s prescription or the pharmacists’ distribution
- Design flaws in tools that operate on batteries or an exterior power source
You cannot file a claim against a manufacturer if the accident happened 10 or more years ago. If your injury occurred because of your landlord, a repair company or someone else’s actions, you may still be able to file a claim. Regardless of when the accident happened or who is at fault, it’s important to act quickly. Product liability claims require an expert who can prove the origin and cause of the issue. The longer you wait to talk to a professional, the harder it is to prove fault.
