North Augusta Residents Suffer from Defective Products
By definition, a product defect hinders a consumer’s ability to use the item for the product’s intended purpose. While this is sometimes an accident on the part of the designer or manufacturer, and you can simply return the item to the store for a replacement, too often a defective product bypasses safety regulations on purpose so the manufacturer can make money.
Most states have protections for their residents who are harmed by defective products – in South Carolina’s case, the Defective Product Act, passed in 1965, protects South Carolinians from being harmed by a product intentionally or negligently designed, manufactured, or marketed. If you have been harmed by a defective product, you should know how to proceed with a personal injury lawsuit and should retain an attorney from Strom Law Firm today!
Starting a Defective Product Case in South Carolina
If you have been injured by a defective product and you want to file a personal injury lawsuit, the first step is to ensure the product is still in your possession. Do not throw it away or get rid of it – make sure you can use it to prove that it is defective.
The second step is to obtain information from your doctor regarding your injury, its cause, and treatment.
Third, contact a South Carolina defective products attorney. While you may bring forward complaints about manufacturing defects on your own, an attorney can help you gather evidence, and will fight for your rights in court.
