Compensation Awards in Georgia
These days, most items on the local store shelves have been tested for almost any kind of situation. However, occasionally a product in Norcross is defective. If you or a family member has been hurt by a defective product, you may have a Products Liability case.
Product Liability Laws
Defective products are classified into three different classes in Georgia.
First, manufacturing defects are those defects that stem from the actual manufacture of the product. For instance, if a desk collapses because the manufacturer did not put in three bolts that were required by the design, this would be a manufacturing defect.
The second type are design defects. These defects exist when they are ingrained in a product's design, and the product cannot be safely manufactured, even if made to specifications. For instance, if an electric saw lacks an emergency shutoff switch, this would be a design defect.
