Home Personal Injury Products Liability

Sometimes following the instructions leads you astray.

Products liability cases can be frustratingly complex. I have the experience to help ensure responsible parties are held accountable and that you’re compensated for the damages.

We use most products in our daily lives without giving much thought to the potential harm they might cause. For the most part, we never encounter a product that causes injuries. However, when a product that was designed, manufactured or marketed defectively does cause an injury, it can be life-altering. At the same time, trying to determine who is responsible and how to hold them accountable can be frustrating. Fortunately, I have years of experience litigating products liability cases.

First, it’s important to understand that manufacturers of products and anyone in the chain of distribution, including retailers, can be found responsible for products that cause injuries to consumers.

In South Carolina, manufacturers and designers of defective products will be held to a strict liability standard, although the product must have been in the same condition when it caused the injury as it was when it left the hands of the defendant, the defect must be unreasonably dangerous and the injury must be attributable to the defect and sustained during the product’s normal use.

It’s also important to keep in mind that expert testimony is almost always necessary to prove a product was defective and unreasonably dangerous to the end user.

Products liability cases can be complex, but I have the experience to simplify the process for you and, at the same time, ensure responsible parties are held accountable so that you’re compensated for any and all damages you may have suffered or incurred.
