We use countless products every day—from cellphones and computers to cars and motorcycles to medications to everyday household items. These are goods we have purchased to enable us to complete our work, care for ourselves and our families, and make our lives more enjoyable. The manufacturers and distributors who provide us with these items have a responsibility to ensure they are reasonably safe for consumer use. When they fail in this duty and defective or faulty products make it to market, people can be seriously injured.
At Monge & Associates, we have been helping injured individuals and their families since 1993. If you or a loved one were injured by a dangerous product, our Atlanta product liability lawyers can help you fight for the justice and recovery you deserve. Depending on the injuries and losses you have suffered, you may be able to recover compensation for your:
- Medical bills
- Lost income/wages
- Decreased earning ability
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
Our firm offers free, confidential consultations and works on a contingency basis, meaning you don’t owe us anything until we recover a monetary award on your behalf.
How Product Liability Cases Arise
As previously mentioned, manufacturers and distributors have a responsibility to provide products that are safe to use, within reason. There are many ways companies have failed to protect consumers in the past, whether through simple negligence or the desire to make money despite a product’s known dangers. Hazards may arise through:
- Poor product design
- Failure to fully/properly test product
- Use of faulty/improper materials during manufacturing
- Manufacturing mistakes
- Failure to provide proper warnings
- Lack of clear instructions for use
Depending on where the error lies, victims of any malfunctioning product will likely have standing to sue one (or more) parties involved in creating or distributing the item. Our team can help you investigate a defective product and identify liability if you’ve been injured in an accident.
Protecting You Against Product Negligence
Our team is dedicated to keeping consumers safe from dangerous products—and helping them receive recourse if they are injured. Hazardous consumer goods should be removed from the market as quickly as possible, and sometimes the best way to force a recall is through filing a product liability lawsuit. For many companies, money is the most important part of any equation; if they face enough lawsuits, they are more likely to decide to remove a bad product from shelves. Therefore, if you have encountered a dangerous product, we urge you to call our team to learn about your legal options.
We have helped consumers challenge the manufacturers of many types of dangerous products, such as:
- Protective items like 3M Combat Earplugs
- Manufactured chemicals like Roundup Weed Killer
- Nicotine products like JUUL E-Cigarettes
- Medical products like talcum powder (baby powder) and Zantac
- Automotive parts including airbags, tires, breaks, and more
While some failures just result in a product becoming unusable, others can cause traumatic injury, unsafe chemical exposure, or even larger problems like car accidents. If you or a loved one have been injured by or because of a dangerous product, you do have the right to sue for compensation. Ask us for more information on the damages you may be able to recover.
