When we get behind the wheel of a car, we trust that everything about the vehicle is safe--from the body’s exterior, to the airbags and seatbelts, to the inside structure. We rely on auto manufacturers’ stringent safety testing and product recalls to make sure we’re only operating safe and reliable vehicles. Sadly, dangerous products make their way onto the market now and then, resulting in consumer injury or death. Products liability laws exist in Georgia to ensure manufacturers continue to build their products as safely as possible.
In today’s world of product safety testing and FDA standards, we expect the things we buy--from the products we use to the food we eat--to be safe, without the risk of causing injury or sickness. Unfortunately, products do come on the market sometimes that are harmful, and result in consumer injury or death. And food in restaurants as well as storebought is sometimes tainted with bacteria or other substances that cause illness.
