Potential revision to Toxic Substances Control Act re asbestos

Some substances are so carcinogenic that they should not be used under any circumstances. Anyone here in Georgia (or anywhere else for that matter) who has ever contracted a disease related to asbestos exposure would more than likely agree that this toxic substance should be completely banned. Some members of the U.S. Senate agree as well.

Products liability suits could be in Ikea's future

Decorating and furnishing a child's room is often a great source of joy for Georgia parents. Many put a great deal of time and effort into finding the right pieces that complete the aesthetic for which they are looking. Tragically, some parents are mourning the loss of children from dangerous furniture that was hiding in their rooms, and the furniture-maker Ikea could soon be facing products liability suits.

Is it possible to receive restitution for mesothelioma?

The simple answer is yes, you can. Of course, like many other things in life, going through the process is not quite as easy, but certainly not impossible.

The challenge lies in the fact that your exposure could have been up to 50 years ago.

Products liability alert: Faulty fire extinguishers recalled

Many Georgia residents have fire extinguishers in their homes in the event of a fire. These devices provide a certain measure of security since they provide the opportunity to put out a fire before it becomes a blaze that could cause injuries or death. What if the danger actually came from the very thing meant to prevent harm? A recent recall could result in products liability claims for fires that never should have spread.

Georgia premises liability: Hurt at an apartment complex

Many Georgia residents live in apartments or know someone who does. Landlords have a responsibility to tenants and their guests to keep the property safe. When they fail in this, those injured as a result may pursue premises liability claims in an effort to seek compensation for their losses.
