Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!Jeannette A., Client
I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.Shirley H., Client

Parents are left with exorbitant medical expenses, and in some cases, have to take a leave of absence from their job in order to help their child recover. In other cases, these injuries tragically result in death. If your child has been injured due to a defective product, an Atlanta defective product lawyer can help you get the compensation your child needs to make a full recovery.
Product liability is an area of the law that includes injuries caused by defection toys and other children’s products. In a product liability case, you and your Atlanta defective product lawyer need to prove that the product was defective in one of three ways:
Note that “defective” does not mean broken in the context of product liability. If a toy or other children’s product was defective in one or more of the three ways listed above, the company responsible for selling the product may be liable for any injuries that result.
Unfortunately, proving that a toy or other children’s product is defective is not easy. It can be difficult to identify where in the design, manufacturing, and retail process the product became defective. An experienced Atlanta defective product lawyer can help you determine whether the product that injured your child was defective and who should be held liable.
Unlike most other injury cases, product liability claims are judged according to a strict liability standard in the state of Georgia, which means if you can prove the product was defective, you do not need to prove that the company was otherwise negligent.
In order to succeed in a product liability claim, you and your Atlanta defective product lawyer will work together to prove the following elements:
Often in product liability cases, proving that the product defect contributed to serious injuries is complex. Furthermore, manufacturers will often try to argue that the product was modified by you or someone else or it was misused by your child. They will even try to argue that your child would not have been injured had you been providing adequate supervision.
Toys or other children’s products are popular gifts from friends or family members. Many people think that they cannot pursue a claim because they didn’t purchase the product that injured their child. Fortunately, this is not the case – Georgia law does not require “privity” for you to pursue a claim. In other words, you can pursue a product liability claim with an Atlanta defective product attorney if your child was injured even if you didn’t purchase the product.
Because children are so vulnerable, almost any toy or product can result in injury. However, these are some of the most common products that give rise to claims:
In general, you have two years in the state of Georgia to file a lawsuit based on a claim arising from personal injury, which is referred to as the statute of limitations. If you fail to file your lawsuit, you will lose all of your rights no matter how strong your case is or how badly you’ve been injured.
However, the situation is significantly different for product liability cases:
The statute of limitations is an absolute bar to recovery. We strongly recommend that you do not wait to pursue legal action so that it does not become an issue in your case.
The injuries caused by defective toys and products can range from mild to severe and can even result in death. These injuries can include the following:
Many of these wounds involve the head or face and can result in permanent scarring or disfigurement. These injuries can require extensive medical treatment and physical therapy and pose a threat to your child’s normal development. An Atlanta defective product lawyer can help you make sure you get the compensation your child needs to make a full recovery.
Product liability cases can be extremely complex. Don’t risk your child’s future by pursuing a claim on your own. Compassionate and dedicated, Atlanta defective product lawyer Amber Gilormo can help you get the compensation you need. We serve clients in all of Metro Atlanta, including Roswell, Canton, and Cumming.
