Understanding Product Liability

Product liability is an area of the law that is intended to protect consumers against the injuries or illnesses they may suffer as a result of dangerous or defective products. Under product liability laws, product designers and manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their goods for the general public. When this responsibility is not met, those who suffer as a result are often entitled to receive compensation for their damages.

Product liability cases can take a variety of forms, from car accidents caused by defective brakes to food-borne illnesses resulting from dangerous food products or containers. However, in all of these circumstances, consumers shouldn’t be responsible for dealing with the consequences alone. If you have been injured by a dangerous product in Atlanta, the lawyers of the Ausband & Dumont understand the challenges you may be facing, and we can help you fight for justice for your pain and suffering.

Product Liability Categories

While the types of consumer goods involved in product liability cases are virtually infinite, these cases can all be sorted into three main categories:

  • Design defects
  • Manufacturing defects
  • Marketing defects / failure to warn

Each of these categories of product liability has important differentiating factors, and an attorney can help you decide which classification best applies to your case.
