Product Liability Lawsuit Lawyer

“General” product liability cases are those in which a consumer or a user of a product suffers serious injury or death because of defects in a product’s design or because the product failed from some mechanical or manufacturing problem. Conley Griggs Partin LLP handles product liability cases in many different situations including:

A lot of times the product involved in such cases is an automobile or an automotive component, which is why we have a separate link for information specifically related to automotive product liability cases. On other occasions, however, the product involved may be a pharmaceutical product like Vioxx, Bextra or Celebrex, a chemical product such as a paint stripper or cleaner, a household product like a space heater or propane tank, a power tool like a miter saw or nail gun, an industrial machine used in a factory like an engine or a cutting apparatus, recreational products like a paint ball gun or other types of sports equipment. Such product liability cases can arise from incidents at your home, in your workplace or elsewhere you are using the product. If an incident happened at your workplace, you may already have a workers’ compensation claim. However, if you believe a product failure or defect was the real cause of your injuries, it may still be worth investigating a third-party claim related to the product.

Do You Have a Product Liability Case?

If you have been involved in an incident where you believe that a consumer product caused serious injuries or caused a loved one to die, you may have a product liability case. If you think you may have a product liability case, even if you are not sure and just want to investigate the possibility, two things are very important to remember. First, take all possible steps you can to ensure that the product involved (and all components of the product or items used with the product) are maintained and are not moved, sold, dismantled, salvaged or otherwise lost or altered until you have a chance to retain a lawyer to investigate potential claims and have someone inspect the product. Second, if you think you may have a potential product liability claim, contact a lawyer before any of your claims related to the incident are settled. Settlements with other parties or insurers could impact your ability to preserve evidence and/or pursue and recover under a product liability theory.

With those basics in mind, understand that product liability cases can generally take one or more of three forms:

  1. “Design defect” cases, which involve claims that a product was designed by the manufacturer in a way that creates dangers and risks of harm to the user that outweigh the benefits of the chosen design.
  2. “Manufacturing defect” cases, in which some act or omission during the manufacturing process caused the product to fail when being used.
  3. “Warning defect” cases, in which it is alleged that a product is dangerous because it does not contain warnings, instructions or labels that inform the user in regard to the dangers or proper uses of the product.

Lawyers at Conley Griggs Partin LLP can handle claims for design, manufacturing and warning defects involving consumer products. Examples of the types of general product liability cases we have handled or are currently handling include:

  • Cases involving brain injuries or nervous system damage caused by inhalation or ingestion of consumer products. Examples such as paint strippers or cleaners containing hazardous chemicals or are equipped with inadequate warnings or instructions, may cause damage.
  • Cases involving pulmonary, cardiac or other organ-system failures or deaths caused by the ingestion of a pharmaceutical product like Vioxx, Bextra or Celebrex.
  • Cases involving severe injuries or death caused by electrical currents from machinery that was not properly designed or labeled.
  • Cases involving amputations or lost limbs caused by poorly designed saws, drills or other power tools or unguarded cutting machinery.
  • Cases involving serious head or eye injuries from inadvertent discharge of nail guns, pneumatic drillers, paint guns, or similar products.
  • Cases involving serious burns or other injuries caused by explosions or fires from heaters, propane tanks or similar products containing flammable components.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
