It is the duty of any company that makes, distributes, or sells a product to consumers to ensure that the product is safe. If a dangerous product makes it into the market and injures a customer, the responsible company could be held financially liable. Car parts, appliances, and even medical devices could be the subject of a personal injury claim.

If you suffered an injury from a poorly designed or manufactured product, you might not know where to start. Pinning down the exact cause of a defective product may be challenging, but an experienced Cobb County defective products lawyer could help collect valuable evidence and build an effective case for compensation.

Common Types of Defective Products

Any product introduced to the public could ultimately become a defective product. From medical devices to lawnmowers, harmful products cause unexpected injuries every day. Holding the company responsible for those injuries is what every Cobb County defective products attorney strives for. Some common types of defective products include:

  • Medical devices like pacemakers or hip implants
  • Small appliances
  • Power tools
  • Industrial machinery
  • Children’s toys
  • Recreational vehicles like 4-wheelers or jet skis.
  • Automobile parts

No matter the form a defective product comes in, a Cobb County defective products attorney could thoroughly investigate a claim to pursue justice for an injured plaintiff

Investigating a Product Liability Case

Not every injury caused by the use of a product or device will lead to a viable claim for compensation. In certain circumstances, a consumer can ultimately bear the responsibility for their own injuries. An attorney could help investigate the circumstances of a defective product and the resulting injuries to determine liability.

Reasonable Use

If a consumer was using a product for a purpose other than what was intended by a manufacturer, the manufacturer might avoid any liability. In Georgia, a consumer must be using a product in a reasonable manner to be entitled to compensation from an injury.

Prior Defect

Not all defects relate to the manufacturer. If a product was in perfect working order at the time a consumer came into possession of it, there are no grounds for a lawsuit if a defect occurs later. However, if another party is responsible for the defect after the product left the manufacturer’s possession but before it is under the consumer’s control, the person or company responsible for the defect could face some liability.

Prior Injury

To be eligible for compensation, a consumer’s damages must be a direct consequence of the defective product. In other words, a consumer cannot seek compensation for injuries that were unrelated to the product in question. However, recovery may be available if the product made those pre-existing injuries worse.

Call for a Consultation with a Cobb County Defective Products Attorney

If you suffered an injury from a dangerous product, you deserve to be compensated financially by the responsible entity. A seasoned Cobb County defective products lawyer could assist you by filing a defective products lawsuit on your behalf. To learn more about your options and begin the claims process, call today for a consultation.
