Charleston Products Liability Lawyers
Use of dangerous or defective products can cause serious injury. A defective product is one that was either designed with defects or was manufactured improperly. Flawed design or manufacturing defects may result in unsafe products that cause injury to consumers. Examples of product liability cases can include unsafe or defective toys, furniture, industrial equipment, pharmaceutical products, appliances, machinery, and medical devices.
In such situations, consumers may have a claim against the manufacturer of the product, distributors of the product, and retailer(s) who sold the product. At Clawson and Staubes, LLC: Injury Group, our attorneys are well equipped to help you navigate through this complex area of law in order to pursue recovery.
When the process of manufacturing a product is poorly conducted, there is a good chance that at least some of the products that make their way to market will be defective. Though manufacturing defects may affect a relatively small portion of the total products that are on the market, the consequences of even a single defect can be devastating. If you or someone you love has been injured by a dangerous, defective, or hazardous product, our team at Clawson and Staubes, LLC: Injury Group can help you investigate the situation, determine who is ultimately responsible, and take legal action to hold them accountable.
Defects that are fundamental to the very design of a product have the potential to affect just about every person who buys and uses the product. Though it is difficult to believe that a product with an inherent design flaw would ever be released to begin with, the fact remains that products with defective designs are sold and recalled in the U.S. every year. If you or a loved one has been hurt from using a product with a design defect, you should consult with an attorney about what legal action you may now pursue.
When you go out and buy a new household appliance, you have every reason to expect the product to work exactly as intended. Though these products are safe most of the time, even a small defect may be enough to cause serious injury to anyone using them. If you or a loved one has been injured after using a defective household appliance, you should consult with a product liability attorney in Charleston about what compensation you may be able to recover.
All mass-produced food, beverages, and agricultural products (e.g., crop care, livestock food) may be subject to product liability lawsuits if they are contaminated and cause food poisoning or other illnesses. Our legal team in Charleston understands just how serious these incidents can be, and we can help you take the legal action necessary to hold the responsible party accountable for your pain and suffering.
Product liability cases can arise from injuries caused by dangerous or defective toys. Some toys may be from a defective batch, meaning that an otherwise safe product entered the market with manufacturing defects. In other cases, a toy may be improperly designed from the outset, meaning that the product was never safe to begin with. In yet other cases, product testing may not have been performed, also leading to an unsafe product for children being on the market. Whatever the case may be, serious injuries to children can result.
Automobile manufacturers have a responsibility to design their vehicles to guarantee driver, passenger, and pedestrian safety. Automobile component manufacturers and the automobile manufacturers themselves can be held responsible for product liability claims arising from manufacturing defects and negligent design. Catastrophic injury and wrongful death claims can arise from defectively designed or manufactured automobiles, sport utility vehicles, trucks, vans, tires, tire rims, airbags, seatbelts, ATVs, boats, corn and cotton pickers, tractors and numerous other products.
