What is Product Liability?
Accidents involving the use of a product that result in injury or death are included in an area of law called “products liability.” People are hurt every day at home, outside the home, and at work while using everything from common household items to highly complicated industrial machinery and chemicals.
The Keenan Law Firm has extensive experience in products liability lawsuits. Our Atlanta products liability lawyers have pioneered legal arguments in the area of air bag injuries, for one. Other products liability case experience at our firm includes but is not limited to injuries involving: forklifts, garbage trucks, lighters, stairways, ramps, pesticides, toxic substances, deer hunting stands, household appliances, lawn mowers, weed cutters, beverage bottles, electrical connections, and space heaters.
The Keenan Firm’s Atlanta products liability lawyers are experienced and innovative. Most products liability lawsuits require the use of highly credentialed experts. The Keenan Law Firm maintains relationships with many types of experts and has retained such diverse experts as former NASA space engineers, the developer of the lap safety belt, the owner of the lunar moon buggy patent, hot air balloon designers, and former officials of government safety departments. The firm goes to great lengths to retain the very best and most suited experts for each individual products liability case.
How a Claim is Valued?
Our Atlanta product liability lawyers will fight for your rights for full compensation in these two categories: economic damages and non-economic damages.
Economic damages would be the medical bills and the lost wages if you missed time from work or had to use up all your sick time and then some. It also includes prescription costs and therapy, if there was any. Essentially, an economic damage would be something that made someone lose money out of their own pocket.
Non-economic damages apply mostly to how this affected your life. If you used to be free of anxieties and enjoyed life normally but now after this product liability incident you suffer anxiety or depression and have trouble living life like you used to, those are examples of non-economic damages.
