Products liability claims can result from incorrect labeling

Rashes, hives, sinus problems, watery eyes, difficulty breathing - these are all symptoms associated with an allergic reaction. While some reactions present only minor problems, some Georgia allergy sufferers can have severe reactions to certain allergens. For this reason, the typical individual will go to great lengths to avoid products or environments that trigger such an attack. Environmental factors are usually fairly easy to spot; however, products require labeling to notify the consumer regarding specific items contained within the product. When this labeling is not accurate, the individual can suffer, and the product's company can face charges related to products liability.

Mesothelioma case settled

The average Georgia resident spends a considerable portion of his or her life working to take care of the family. After these years of hard work, the individual expects to be able to spend his or her golden years visiting with the grandchildren or perhaps traveling and experiencing new adventures. Unfortunately, these opportunities will not be available for all to enjoy. Some will spend these precious years battling diseases such as mesothelioma that are the result of these years of hard work.

Faulty highchairs could turn into products liability claims

Protecting their children is a preoccupation with many Georgia parents. They try to make sure that their homes are "baby-proofed," having toys do not present choking hazards and clothes that are flame retardant. Internet research and talking with other parents helps them choose products designed for safety. So what happens when a defective product leads to tragedy? Those parents whose children suffer injuries from these dangerous items may file products liability claims seeking restitution and justice.

Supposedly, employees 'doged a bullet' re asbestos exposure

In some cases, hurricanes reveal other dangers in their aftermath. For instance, old buildings here in Georgia and elsewhere that may contain materials made with asbestos could sustain damage and release the toxic substances into the air. Anyone in those buildings could suffer exposure to asbestos. The question remains whether even minimal exposure to the mineral's fibers or dust is safe.

Asbestos dangers: Are you at risk?

Depending on your lifestyle, current employment status and workplace location, you may be at risk for health-related hazards related to asbestos. The trouble is that most illnesses associated with asbestos exposure develop slowly and without immediate apparent symptoms. By the time a doctor diagnoses your illness, the disease may already have reached an advanced stage. If you're aware of hazards ahead of time and your employer fulfills his or her obligations to keep you safe, you may be able to lower your risk.
