Greenville & Spartanburg, SC Products Liability Lawyers
If you’ve been injured as a result of using a product, or your warranty hasn’t been honored, you may want to file a products liability claim. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to recover damages including medical bills, lost wages, property damages, pain and suffering and punitive damages.
But how do you know if you have a case? Here are situations in which you may want to file a suit against a manufacturing company or distributor of the product that harmed you.
- Negligence. When the manufacturer makes and sells a product that it knows could be harmful, it’s behaving negligently. An example of this type of negligence is a car company that sells cars despite having knowledge that the seatbelts don’t work properly. If someone is injured as a result of that faulty seatbelt, they can sue.
- Strict Products Liability. What if the manufacturer had no knowledge that the product would cause harm, but you were injured anyway? With a strict products liability claim, you still may be able to recover damages. This type of claim is appropriate when you want to show that you sustained injury when you used the product as intended. It may be filed against the manufacturer, distributor or retailer.
- Breach of Warranty Claim. If you have a warranty on a product that’s not being honored, you can sue for a replacement or refund. You must show that your warranty is still valid and that the manufacturer or retailer is not honoring the terms of the warranty.
