Discuss Your Injuries with Our Personal Injury Attorneys in Charleston
As its name suggests, product liability is a category of civil law that holds product marketers and/or manufacturers liable for any injuries or damages that result from the use of their product. This can include everything from food and drugs to toys and firearms. In South Carolina, for a product liability claim to be considered, it must be filed timely.
Common types of product liability claims:
- Defective airbags and other auto parts that can cause car accidents
- Children's toys that contain a toxic substance
- Defective design of household appliances
- Defective pharmaceutical drugs
