Products Liability Law Firm Pursues Compensation for Consumers in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia

Dedicated attorneys seek maximum recovery for injured clients

When you buy any consumer product, you have the right to expect that it is safe to use as intended. When a defect in that product causes you harm, you are entitled to compensation. Unfortunately, in most cases, you must deal with huge, impersonal corporations that try to deny their legal responsibility. That insult is often as infuriating as your injuries are painful. At Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, our injury attorneys care about the clients we serve. We relentlessly pursue full compensation, applying more than 200 years of combined legal experience to the task.

Understanding when you can pursue a defective product claim

A company that releases a defective product on the market is strictly liable for the harm to consumers resulting from the defect. Product defects fall into three major categories:

  • Design defects — In the planning stage of the product, mistakes can be made that aren’t corrected before the item is sold to the public. In some instances, medical devices have been shown to have harmful design defects. For example, artificial hips with metal-on-metal construction have shed metal filings, causing great pain to hip replacement patients.
  • Manufacturing defects — If a design is sound, a deviation from the specifications might introduce a defect into the product. This can occur when a manufacturer uses substandard or toxic materials, or when workers are not properly trained.
  • Failure to warn — Some products are inherently unsafe and must be used with caution to prevent injuries. These products require adequate labeling to warn consumers of the dangers.

If a product defect caused your injury, you might be entitled to compensation through a verdict or settlement. However, these cases can be difficult to win, because defendants often claim that a consumer’s misuse of the product was the proximate cause of the injury. That’s why it’s necessary to retain an experienced products liability lawyer.

Defective products that have led to liability cases include:

Dangerous drugs

  • Anticoagulants such as Pradaxa and Xarelto
  • Antidepressants/SSRIs such as Prozac, Paxil and Zoloft
  • Anti-diabetes drugs such as Byetta and Januvia
  • Antipsychotics such as Abilify and Risperdal
  • Opioids
  • Taxotere
  • Testosterone therapies
  • Viagra
  • Zofran

Defective medical devices

Defective auto parts

Dangerous household products

It takes a skilled personal injury attorney familiar with products liability law to construct a compelling case for relief. Injured consumers should act quickly, so they are not barred from recovery due to the statute of limitations or a defendant company’s bankruptcy.
