Products Liability Lawyers in Savannah, Georgia
Justice for Injured Consumers
When you purchase a product, you expect that it will be safe for its intended use. Even though a many federal and state laws seek to protect consumers and ensure only safe products are released to the public, millions are still injured annually due to defective products and tens of thousands will tragically die at the hands of a dangerous product. If you are injured due to a product defect, you may have a viable claim under products liability law against those responsible for the defect. Products liability law holds manufacturers, distributors, vendors, and others liable for injuries caused by defective products. Consumers who are injured due to dangerous products may pursue a financial recovery against those responsible, including compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
Generally, a manufacturer of a defective product can be liable for a dangerous product through either negligence or strict liability. Strict liability means that if a product was used by the consumer in the way it was intended by the manufacturer as well as according to instructions, and the consumer was nevertheless injured by the product, the manufacturer can be held liable for any injuries that resulted from the dangerous product.

Types of Product Liability Cases
Product liability cases generally fall into three main categories, but the following list is not exhaustive:
- Design defects: A design defect is in error in the engineering or developmental process of the product and will exist even if the product is manufactured to exact specifications. Most design defects involve products that are inherently dangerous.
- Manufacturing defects: Defects in manufacturing occur when an error is made during the actual production or manufacture of the product. Most often, these defects happen in the factory and are due to the failure to manufacture the product correctly in accordance with design specifications. Failure to warn: When a product does not come with adequate warnings or instructions, it may give rise to liability on the part of the manufacturer, distributor, and others.
