What is Product Liability in Summerville

Product liability law in Summerville refers to a specific area of personal injury law where injured consumers can seek compensation for harm caused by defective products. In general, there are three major types of product defects around which a consumer may be able to file a product liability claim:

  • Design defects, which are product defects that happen in the process of designing the product (and no amount of proper or effective manufacturing can remedy the defect);
  • Manufacturing defects, which are defects that occur while a product is being manufactured and can be remedied if the manufacturing process is corrected; and
  • Marketing defects (or the “failure to warn”), which are product defects that result from defective marketing or the failure to warn consumers about certain risks associated with the use of the product (meaning that there is nothing inherently wrong with the product but there is something wrong with how it has been marketed).

Product defect claims can be filed as strict liability claims in South Carolina, which means there is no need to prove negligence. Instead, the designer, manufacturer, or marketer can be strictly liable for injuries by virtue of the fact that the consumer used the product they made and got hurt.

Common Types of Summerville Product Liability Cases

Any type of consumer product can be defective and may result in harm to a consumer who uses it or comes into contact with it. Defective products can range from foods and home appliances or furniture to motor vehicles to medical implants and devices. The following are common types of product defect cases where injured consumers are able to obtain compensation for their injuries by filing a product liability lawsuit:

  • Children’s toys incorrectly marketed to a younger age group where a choking hazard exists and causes a choking injury;
  • Defective home appliances that result in home fires;
  • Heavy furniture that does not contain materials to attached the furniture to the wall or warn about tipover risks and the furniture tips over and injuries or suffocate a child;
  • Defective motor vehicle brakes (or other parts) that result in collisions where vehicle occupants are injured;
  • Defective medical devices or implants that cause preventable infections or diseases in patients who have received the implants;
  • Pharmaceuticals or prescription drugs that do not contain proper warnings about uses or interactions, and patients suffer harm as a result; and
  • Contaminated prescription drugs that result in patient injuries.
