Lexington Defective Products Lawyer
US manufacturers release millions of consumer products into the stream of commerce every year, and the vast majority of these items are safe for their intended use. However, there are some products that are dangerous because of defects, whether the flaws exist from inception or develop along the way as the item makes its way to the end user. Defective products pose a serious risk of harm, so it is a comfort to know that you have legal remedies under South Carolina products liability laws if you were hurt.

Summary of South Carolina Product Liability Laws
Manufacturers have a duty to ensure that their products are reasonably safe and free from any defects that could lead to injuries. There are three scenarios in which an item could be dangerous because of flaws:
- Design defects that affect an entire line of products that are created based upon a faulty blueprint;
- Manufacturing errors that impact a specific lot of items that were produced according to the mistake; and,
Failure to warn or labeling defects, in which the instructions provided to the end user are unreasonably dangerous.
There are multiple theories of liability to pursue a manufacturer, including negligence and breach of warranty. However, the most common strategy involves strict products liability, in which you do not have to prove that the manufacturer was at fault. You must show that the item was unsafe because of a defect, and it caused your injuries.
Recovering Compensation in a Defective Product Case
Monetary damages work in much the same way as other personal injury cases, so you may qualify to obtain amounts for medical bills, pain and suffering, and many other losses. When defective products claims involve a large group of victims, the remedy may be through a class action lawsuit; individuals may also seek compensation from the manufacturer and other potential parties.

Our Lexington defect products lawyers will also work diligently to settle for a fair amount, but we are ready to go to court if the company refuses.
