Holding Companies Responsible for Defective Products
When we buy a product we assume that the product will work properly and perform its intended purpose safely. When the product fails and causes injuries or death, the victim may be entitled to compensation.
These cases are called products liability cases. Products liability claims can be filed against various people or businesses involved in the manufacturing and sale of the product. Defendants in the case may include the manufacturer of component parts, the manufacturer who assembled the components, the wholesaler who distributed it, and the retail store owner who sold it to the consumer.
At the Georgia law offices of the Studstill Firm, LLP, we have the resources and experience to help victims of product defects obtain justice and compensation for their injuries, whether you're in Valdosta, Douglasville, Pearson, Macon or anywhere else in Georgia.

We Help Victims of Defective Products
Most products that consumers use can be dangerous if they are not designed safely or manufactured properly. Our lawyers handle cases involving personal injuries or wrongful death from many types of defective products, including:
- Defective bike helmets
- Car defects and other motor vehicle defects
- Defective toys and products for children
- Defective power tools
- Defective ATVs
- Medical device defects
- Defective prescription and non-prescription drugs
Proving A Product Is Defective
In order to prove that a product is defective, we must show one or more of the following:
- Design defect: an error in design that existed before the product was manufactured
- Manufacturing defect: an error that occurred while the product was being built or produced
- Marketing defect: improper instructions were given and/or a failure to warn consumers about a dangerous aspect of the product
Proving that the product is defective is the most challenging aspect of a products liability case. Success requires the use of specialized experts and experienced attorneys who know how to gather all of the required information and pull all of the pieces together into a solid case.
