Can I File a Claim against the Liable Automotive Company?

Door latch failure claims can be pursued through Georgia product liability laws. If your injuries were caused by a design or manufacturing flaw in your vehicle's door latch that put you at an unreasonable risk of harm, then you may be awarded compensation for the damages you have suffered as a result. However, the automotive company will likely fight your claim with everything they have - insurance specialists, lawyers, etc. - which is why you should get help from an attorney if you want to win your case.
