Understanding Georgia Product Liability Laws

Product liability refers to the legal responsibility that manufacturers, distributors, and sellers bear when their products cause harm or damage due to defects or malfunctions. This area of law is crucial because it enforces safety standards in the production and distribution of goods, ensuring that all products entering the market are safe for consumer use. 

If a product fails to meet these standards and results in harm, product liability laws provide a legal remedy for consumers to seek compensation for their injuries or damages. Overall, product liability laws foster accountability among businesses, encouraging them to prioritize consumer safety and quality control in their operations.

What Makes a Product Defective?

While all product defects pose potential risks to consumers, it's essential to understand that not all defects are the same. Virtually any product can become dangerous if it is not manufactured correctly or does not adhere to industry safety standards. The nature of the defect often determines the validity of any resulting product liability claim filed after an injury occurs.

There are three main types of product defects, including:

  • Design defects: These involve inherent flaws in a product's design that make it unsafe, even when manufactured correctly. A design defect exists in every product of the same type because the design itself, rather than a mistake in manufacturing, is the cause of the problem.
  • Manufacturing defects: These occur when a product is incorrectly manufactured or assembled. This might be due to poor-quality materials, errors on the manufacturing line, or faults during the assembly process. Even if the product's design is safe, a manufacturing defect can make it dangerous.
  • Warning defects: Warning or instruction defects arise from inadequate instruction or failure to provide sufficient warnings about a product's potential risks. If consumers aren't properly informed about how to use a product safely, a warning or instruction defect may be to blame.

Who is Liable for a Defective Product?

When a consumer product is defective, it can be difficult to determine who is liable for the resulting injuries. In some cases, the manufacturer may be held liable. In other cases, the retailer may be held liable. In still other cases, the distributor may be held liable. In some cases, more than one party may be held liable.

Some of the parties that may be held liable for a defective consumer product include:

  • The manufacturer
  • The retailer
  • The distributor
  • The wholesaler
  • The designer
  • The manufacturer of component parts
  • The party that assembled or installed the product

When you choose Cunningham Bounds, we will conduct a thorough investigation into the product and the circumstances surrounding your injuries. We will work to determine who is liable for your damages and hold them accountable.

  • Pharmaceuticals: These cases involve drugs that may have dangerous side effects that were not properly disclosed or drugs that were marketed or manufactured improperly.
  • Medical devices: From pacemakers to artificial joints, medical devices can have defects that cause harm to patients. These cases can also involve failure to warn about potential risks.
  • Industrial machinery: In an industrial setting, machinery defects can lead to serious injuries or worker fatalities.
  • Baby products: These can include items like cribs, strollers, and car seats that have design or manufacturing defects that pose a risk to the child's safety.
  • Children’s toys: Toys with small parts can pose a choking hazard, while other toys may be made of toxic materials.
