How Our Atlanta Legal Team Can Help
To win your product liability claim case, you must be able to prove that the product in question was defective or unreasonably dangerous in some way, that your child was injured due to the defect or hazard presented by the product, and that the defect or hazard was caused by the manufacturer’s negligence. This is easier said than done. Our legal team can help you establish these elements by investigating the facts and formulating a solid legal argument in your favor.
