What Is The Product Liability Statute Of Limitations For Georgia?
According to Georgia Code Title 9. Civil Practice § 9-3-33 and § 9-3-31, you have up to two years to file a claim for an injury caused by product liability, and up to four years to file a claim for property damage caused by a defective product.
Because of these strict limitations, it’s important to keep in mind the statute of limitations when deciding whether or not to pursue a claim. If you have been injured, don’t wait to contact a skilled product liability lawyer!
How Do You Sue For A Defective Product?

‘Strict Liability’ vs. ‘Negligence’ In Georgia Defective Product Claims
The state of Georgia allows individuals to bring a lawsuit against a manufacturer under two types of circumstances: strict liability or negligence.
- Negligence requires the injured party to prove that the manufacturer owed a certain duty and then breached that duty, resulting in the claimant’s injuries.
- Strict liability does not require negligence to be a factor, only that the defendant is the manufacturer of the defective product, and that the product was defective when it left the manufacturer’s control, thereby resulting in the claimant’s injuries.
Examples Of Defective Products
A defective product is a product that brings harm to the user either by design or because of a defect. Our lawyers handle injury cases related to other dangerous or defective consumer products. In one case we handled, a government agency found nothing wrong when it investigated a death caused by a collapsing lift on a cherry picker truck. However, we looked deeper. By X-raying the cable of the cherry picker, we discovered that a defect in the wires inside the cable had led to catastrophic failure.
Defective products can include:
- Child seats
- Gasoline containers that lack child-proof features
- Lawn mowers and other yard equipment
- Power tools
- Propane tanks
- Water heaters and gas cans
- Industrial and construction equipment
- Home appliances
