Were you or a loved one harmed by a defective or dangerous product?

Finding an experienced lawyer with the right background is crucial.
Our Georgia attorneys specialize in securing compensation for injury victims across Georgia.


Under Georgia’s personal injury law, individuals and companies can be held liable for damages if their negligent actions cause another person or group of people physical, emotional or financial harm. For example, if someone runs a red light and kills someone in a fatal car accident, they can be sued for wrongful death damages.

Likewise, manufacturers, sellers, vendors and other companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that their products are safe for public use and general consumption. If someone is injured or gets sick as a result of a dangerous product or a failure to warn , the company that profited from selling that product can be required to pay for the victim’s medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.

The term “products” can encompass everything from vehicles and parts, industrial and construction equipment, clothing, tools, home appliances and children's toys, to prescription drugs, medical devices and food and beverages. Essentially, any item you purchase from another individual or company is a product.

Perhaps the most infamous example of a product liability claim is the 1994 McDonald’s hot coffee case (Liebeck v. McDonald’s Restaurants), where a 79-year-old woman sustained third-degree burns after accidentally spilling hot coffee from McDonald’s in her lap. She was in the hospital for 8 days and underwent skin grafting, then required 2 years of medical treatment.

In addition, here are some of the biggest and most extensive product liability cases in the U.S. that have resulted in significant compensation for plaintiffs:

If you were seriously injured by a defective or unsafe product, or someone you love was harmed or killed by a product defect, it's imperative that you seek legal advice from an experienced and knowledgeable attorney immediately. Time is of the essence in these complex cases, so contact our Georgia product liability attorneys as soon as possible to take the next step in protecting your rights.

Suing Big Pharma: Defective medical devices and unsafe drugs

Lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers are a special category of product liability claims that require unique expertise and knowledge. This is because pharmaceutical companies and medical manufacturers have deep pockets to dispute such claims or litigate plaintiffs into submission.

What’s more, pharmaceutical and medical device companies tend to be more motivated to fight injury claims because of the risk that 1 successful case or settlement could trigger an avalanche of related claims and class action lawsuits from other patients adversely affected by the unsafe drug or defective biomedical product, not to mention the bad press the company would receive.

In short: Product liability claims involving pharmaceutical and biomedical product companies tend to be more complicated, more expensive, and more intensely disputed.

Make no mistake that deep-pocketed manufacturers and companies will put up a strong defense when their brand reputation and corporate profits are on the line. Hiring an experienced product liability attorney is the wisest course of action when going up against companies and manufacturers in defective product claims.

What to do if you’ve been injured by a defective product

No matter who or what injured you, it’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible, including if you were hurt by an object. Be sure to follow the doctor’s recommendations and attend all medical appointments.

If possible, keep the product that harmed you and gather any information you have about the purchase of this product, as this will be vital evidence should you proceed with filing a product liability case. Of course, you’ll want to refrain from using the product anymore and risk further injury, but put it in a safe place until it’s needed again.

Next, contact a defective products attorney near you as soon as possible to discuss your legal options and determine if you have a case. If possible, bring the product to the initial consultation and be prepared to answer questions about what you were doing when the injury occurred.
