Fulton County Product Liability Lawyers
Many everyday products that we use are unsafe. These products may include our automobiles, household appliances and children's toys. The hazards posed by these products can be based upon their overall design or problems that occur during the manufacturing process. Other products may lack adequate warnings or fail to provide proper instructions regarding safe use of the product.
If you have been seriously injured by a product you feel was unsafe, you may have a claim against any one of the following entities: (1) the manufacturer; (2) the wholesaler; (3) the distributor; or (4) the retailer. Every day, hundreds of consumers are exposed to injury by hazardous and faulty products. When businesses focus primarily on their bottom line, they often fail to implement proper policies and procedures to ensure that their products are free from unnecessary dangers.
Montlick & Associates is comprised of experienced Fulton County product liability laywers who are dedicated to obtaining the financial recovery that victims of defective products need to recover. We believe that our injured clients deserve the financial compensation necessary to pay for their injuries and to hold accountable those companies that are responsible for their physical, emotional and financial harm that they have suffered.
At the federal level, the United States has set up watchdog agency groups, such as the Consumer Protection Safety Commission (CPSC) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that report statistics involving injuries and fatalities related to common consumer products and motor vehicles. These agencies may work with product manufacturers to announce recalls when injuries occur, but this reactive approach to complaints does not protect consumers until the recalls are implemented by the makers of hazardous products.
With nearly 35 years of experience, our Fulton County attorneys have been battling large corporations and their experienced in-house legal counsels and insurance companies. Some of the defective products claims that our law firm can handle include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Defects in motor vehicles that lead to rollover accidents, sudden acceleration crashes and fire hazards
- Children's toys and products like strollers, playpens, car seats and high chairs
- Consumer electronics, such as laptops and computers that pose a fire risk
- Dangerous pharmaceutical drugs
- Building defects and other toxic substances (e.g., lead paint, asbestos)
Georgia product liability law may allow an injured party to pursue a legal claim based on multiple theories of liability including: strict liability, breach of a product's warranty or negligence. Strict liability allows an injured party to sue a tortfeasor (this is typically the manufacturer) for releasing their product into the stream of commerce without the need to establish fault. In other cases, the injured party may assert a breach of warranty claim against the manufacturer, wholesaler, distributor, or retailer because one of those parties breached an express or implied warranty associated with the product. Finally, an injured party may recover damages because of injury suffered due to someone's negligence. Negligence is based on establishing a lack of reasonable care that causes a defect or hazard which results in injury to a consumer.
