What You Should Know About Manufacturer Liability In Georgia
Manufacturers and retailers often fight to avoid responsibility for their products that have caused personal injury, and in some cases death. When corporations fail to put your safety first, we can help hold them liable for your injuries.
- Time- Georgia law allows for a two-year window when filing a personal injury claim for damages from dangerous or defective products. However, this time limit is measured from the time of discovery of both the personal injury and the product’s relevance to the injury unless this discovery is made outside of the ten-year statute of repose. While the statute of limitations governs the amount of time a plaintiff has to recover money after he or she was injured, the statute of repose bars any actions for dangerous product injuries that happen after 10 years from the date the item was first sold.
- Damages – To have a products liability claim in Georgia you must be less than 50% at fault for the injury caused. Additionally, your claim may be reduced by your percentage of liability.
- Basis for Liability – For the manufacturer to be liable, the product that caused injury must have been defective upon release from the manufacturer and the defect must have caused the injury. In Georgia, we consider issues of defective design, manufacturing defects, and duty to warn when building a case.
