Macon Product Liability Attorneys
As a consumer, you should be able to trust the products you and your family use on a regular basis. Whether you are traveling in your automobile or your child is playing with a toy, if you or someone you love has suffered any degree of injury while properly using a product, you may be entitled to compensation.
Are You a Victim of Faulty Product?
You should be able to trust that a product will not malfunction and cause you or a loved one harm. However, products can cause injury and even wrongful death. When products malfunction and cause harm, it is a result of either an error in design, manufacturing, or in the failure to provide proper instructions and warnings for use.
Manufacturers are responsible for the safe use of their product and should be held accountable for faulty operation. If an injury has occurred, the manufacturer and distributor can be held liable.
If you have been injured by a product, be sure to save the product which has caused the harm and contact a product liability attorney at Buzzell, Graham & Welsh immediately. Our attorneys will contact specialists in the fields of product engineering and product safety and will help prevent this same accident from happening to someone else in the future.
Injury from toys or children’s furniture malfunction. Examples of product liability cases include the following
- Auto accidents from blown tires or a faulty braking system
- Injury while operating lawn equipment
- Pharmaceutical errors from the physician’s prescription or the pharmacists’ distribution
- Design flaws in tools that operate on batteries or an exterior power source
Product Liability Questions
Q: My 25 year old stove just exploded, or tipped over and burned someone. Do I have a case against anyone?
A: You won’t have any case against the manufacturer, as there is a 10 year limit on claims. Depending on your situation, you still may have claim against your landlord, a repair company, or someone else whose acts or failure to act caused the accident. Please give BGW a call and we’ll help you answer this question.
Q: How quickly do I need to act?
A: You must quickly secure an expert who can show the origin and cause of the issue. The longer you wait, the more difficult it becomes to prove fault of a person or party.
