Georgia Product Liability Claims Attorneys
Thousands of deaths and injuries are directly attributable to dangerous and defective products sold in the United States. Despite all the work done by groups like the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Food and Drug Administration, millions of people are exposed to potentially dangerous and fatal products that fail to meet even the most basic government safety standards. At the Augusta, Georgia, law office of Burnside Law Firm, we have been representing people in product liability claims since 1978.
Anything that is sold, except services and real estate, can be considered a product under product liability law. This means almost any type of product designed and manufactured can be the focus of a product liability lawsuit. This makes these types of claims extremely complex and time-consuming given the need to hire experts specifically versed in these products. Our firm understands the challenges faced by anyone injured by a dangerous product and will fight hard to get the compensation that he or she deserves.

Common Types of Product Liability Claims
No matter what happens, there always seems to be some dangerous product that is in the focus of the media. In prior years, it was defective tires on sports utility vehicles then it shifted to tainted food. Now the whole focus seems to be on children’s toys. Our firm has handled all manner of product liability claims involving:
- Boats and personal watercraft
- Cars, trucks and motorcycles
- Bicycles and other recreational equipment
- TV stands and other household appliances and furniture
- Industrial equipment and construction tools
Product liability claims require that we understand a variety of products and the ways in which those products can injure people. We will promptly examine your case to determine whether you were injured because of a design defect, manufacturing defect, or defective warning or instruction.
