When you purchase and use a product as directed, you expect that the product will not cause you harm. Unfortunately, all too often manufacturers produce and sell products that are unsafe.
When an unsafe product causes harm to an innocent consumer, that individual may be entitled to compensation for any damages and injuries that result. Our Savannah product liability lawyers are experienced in holding manufacturers and other parties liable for the harm they cause in selling an unsafe product.

What Makes a Product Unsafe?
Manufacturers are legally obligated to produce safe products. When they fail in this duty and produce a product that harms consumers, there are a number of parties who can be held responsible. Only an experienced personal injury lawyers can help you determine whether a claim should be filed against the manufacturer, distributor, wholesaler, retailer or another party.
Our Savannah product liability lawyers have the knowledge and resources needed to determine the exact cause of your accident and who should be held liable for your injuries and other damages. Based on the circumstances surrounding the incident, we can determine the type of claim that is most appropriate for your situation.
Product liability claims generally fall into one of four categories:
- Manufacturing defect – A defectively manufactured product contains a flaw that occurred during the manufacturing process that makes it different than most others sold by the company.
- Design defect – Defectively designed products are those that are dangerous from the very beginning at the inception of the product in the blue print and engineering phase. This type of defect typically includes an entire line of products.
- Marketing defect – Typically, marketing defects include claims that products were falsely advertised. Most often, these cases involve claims against pharmaceutical companies that argue their products are safe when they are not.
- Failure to warn – Claims can be filed against a manufacturer that fails to include warning labels, instructions or other necessary information on its product.
In situations involving a large number of consumers who have suffered similar harm from the same product, it may be possible for consumers to join together in a class action lawsuit in order to help level the playing field against a large manufacturer.
Our accomplished attorneys can help you determine the best course of action for your specific situation.
