Manufacturers, marketers and retailers owe a "duty of care," in legal terms, to users of manufactured products. It is a reasonable assumption that consumer products will be safe, will be properly labeled and will be appropriate for their intended audience and purposes.
If you were injured in North or South Carolina while using a manufactured product, you may be justified in making a claim for compensation from the responsible party: the manufacturer, the advertisers, the vendor, maintenance service providers and/or the installer of the product.
Examples of products that may be named as causes of injury in a product liability claim or lawsuit include the following:
- Car parts, including brakes, tires, seat belts, air bags, transmissions and accelerators
- Truck parts, including lights and towing rigs
- Motorcycle parts, including rear-view mirrors
- Bicycle parts, including wheels, brakes and gears
- Boat parts, including engines and steering mechanisms
- Power tools
- Industrial equipment
- Construction-related tools and implements, including ladders, scaffolding and straps for roofers

If our attorneys investigate your accidental injury, we will stay alert to the possibility of any of the following elements of product liability:
