Charlotte Product Liability Lawyers
Representing Victims of Defective & Dangerous Products
When someone is injured or killed by a defective product, the manufacturer or seller may be liable under the law of product liability. While there is no traditional “strict liability” for defective products in North Carolina, a manufacturer or seller can still be held responsible for negligence in the design or manufacture of a product, failure to warn, and breach of warranty.
If you were injured by a defective product, don’t wait to contact an attorney at Charles G. Monnett III & Associates. In most cases, you only have three years from the date of the injury to bring a personal injury claim, including one involving a defective product, in the state of North Carolina.
Responsibility of Manufacturers to Warn of Danger
Product manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure their products are safe for consumer use before placing the product on the market. Manufacturers and sellers also have a duty to warn the consumer of the inherent dangers of the product. Failure to do so constitutes negligence. When this negligence leads to serious injuries or fatalities, the manufacturer or seller is responsible for the harm caused by the product.
