Product Liability Law

South Carolina has very clear product liability laws that lay out the rights of individuals and the responsibility of product manufacturers and distributors for defective merchandise that causes bodily harm.

One thing to keep in mind is that there is one key loophole that eliminates responsibility for bodily harm on the part of the manufacturer or distributor. If you discover that the product is defective, and choose to use it for whatever task you choose to do anyway, the responsibility for any injury is yours for willfully using a known defective product.

Common FAQ’s

  • How do I prove a product liability claim?

    In some product liability cases, companies bear the burden of proof to show that they were not negligent because the manufacturers owe a higher standard of care. In a product liability case, you only need to show that you suffered losses or injuries; the product has a defect or is potentially dangerous; and that the defect directly caused your injury while it was used for its intended purposes.

  • What if the product is defective and I don’t use it?

    The only way that you can prove a product liability claim warrants compensation is if the defective product directly contributed to an injury you sustained while using the product. If you discover a defect but choose not to use the product, there is no claim to be made.

  • What happens if a defective product causes an accidental death of a loved one?

    Your product liability claim can become a wrongful death case if the defective product inadvertently causes the death of a loved one while in use. In a wrongful death claim, you have additional rights to compensation that you can file into your claim against the product manufacturer or distributor.
