Defective Products Attorney in Columbus
Holding Manufacturers Accountable
When you purchase a product, you expect it to fulfill its intended purpose without harming you., Unfortunately, countless defective devices cause injuries to consumers every day. From cell phones catching fire to airbags with faulty inflators, consumers deserve better.
At The Mark Casto Law Firm, PC, we are committed to holding manufacturers and large corporations accountable for the injuries they’ve caused. For over 20 years, our Columbus personal injury lawyer has been representing the public and injured members of our local community, including those in Harris County and the nearby areas. We’ve handled enough cases to know how dangerous products can result in serious injuries, such as third-degree burns, traumatic brain injuries, amputation, disfigurement, blindness, and even death. We’ve also seen how these injuries and losses can affect our clients and their families.
If you or a loved one has been injured or harmed by a defective product, we encourage you to contact our firm right away. We will not let the manufacturer get away with what they did to you, and we will help you recover in the ways that are most useful to you and your specific case.
We handle a wide range of product liability cases just like yours, including:
- Defective vehicle design and other auto parts
- Faulty power tools or equipment used in construction work
- Dangerous elevators and escalators
- Defective drugs and other medical devices
- Defective smoke and carbon dioxide detectors
- Dangerous playground equipment and toys
- Defective child’s seats, cribs, and other products that caused harm to a child
If any of these situations are familiar to you, we are deeply sorry to hear of the losses and injuries you may have sustained. Nevertheless, we want to hear your story and find out how we can help.
Proving a Product Liability Claim
Defective product claims can be challenging in both settlement negotiations and the courtroom environment. However, clients like yourself can be sure that we are well-versed in Georgia’s products liability laws, including the accidents they cover and any new developments that arise.
We know the local laws as well as we know our clients, which gives us the power to pursue the best possible outcome on their behalf.
In proving a products liability claim, the law requires the following statements to be true:
- The product has caused the client injury or significant losses.
- The product is defective.
- The defect is the cause of the client’s injury.
- The client was using the product as it was intended.
Fortunately, these statements adhere to the principle of “strict liability,” which means you will not have to prove the manufacturer was negligent. As long as you can show the product was defective and harmful, you should have a strong claim. Still, opposing counsel may try to challenge the way you were using a product or outright deny existing defects.
This is another factor that makes product liability claims difficult. Our clients are frequently up against big corporations or large insurance companies that have the resources to hire their own skilled and tenacious lawyers. Rest assured, these high-powered legal professionals are no match for our firm.
At The Mark Casto Law Firm, PC, you can trust us to go toe-to-toe with large companies and corporations, even those that have a reputation for safe products and present a convincing defense in court. As a former prosecutor at the DA’s Office, our Columbus products liability attorney, Mr. Mark Casto, has been trying high-stakes cases in the courtroom for decades.
In addition to this experience and willingness to fight on your behalf, our firm will also present your case with a personal touch. We take time to get to know our clients, which means we can tell their stories with compassion and in a way that juries and other fact-finders will respond to.
