Product Liability Law in Georgia
Georgia allows product liability claims based on negligence or strict liability. In order to show strict liability, you must show that the manufacturer made a product that was defective, and that defect resulted in injury. A successful product liability claim requires an attorney with knowledge of laws related to defective and dangerous products.
The types of product defects in a liability claim include:
- Defective Design – The design of the product is unreasonably dangerous
- Manufacturing Defect – A problem with the manufacturing process caused the product to be unsafe
- Duty to Warn – The manufacturer had a duty to warn consumers of dangers arising from the use of the product
According to Georgia’s modified comparative negligence rule, an individual may not recover damages if the person was found to be 50 percent or more at fault for the injuries. If you are found to be less than 50 percent at fault, you may have your damages reduced by the percentage that you are at fault. For example, if you were found to be 30 percent at fault, your damages will be reduced by 30 percent.
