Businesses sometimes cut corners when designing and manufacturing products and they sacrifice safety in the process, causing injuries and death for consumers who use these dangerous products.
If you have been injured by a defective product you should seek skilled legal representation immediately. You have a limited amount of time to file a claim and recover compensation and these cases are complex and time consuming.

Common Types of Product Defects
Defective products can include things like medical devices, toys, child car seats, car parts, prescription and over-the-counter medications, and even prepackaged food products. There are three main reasons a product could be considered defective, including:
- Advertisers failed to warn about the dangers – The product label, advertisements and marketing materials did not warn consumers about potential side effects.
- Defective product design – Flaws in the original design of the product made it unreasonably dangerous and it could reasonably be expected to harm users.
- Defective manufacturing – The product was made dangerous by mistakes during the assembly or packaging phases of production.
If you were injured by any of these products for any of these reasons, you could be entitled to compensation for the physical, financial and emotional side effects that you have experienced.
Our Bluffton product liability lawyers are vigilant in fighting for people who were injured by poorly produced, unsafe products. We will work tirelessly to make sure the appropriate parties are held responsible and that you achieve maximum compensation.

Types of Product Liability Lawsuits Your Attorney Can File
If you suffered an injury from a defective product, your Bluffton product liability lawyer can file three types of claims to obtain fair compensation:
Negligence – This type of claim is for situations where the claimant was injured because of negligence in the design or manufacturing of a product. Examples of negligence include:
- Making products available too quickly
- Failing to repair and maintain machines that create the product
- Not performing sufficient testing and inspection to ensure safety
In order for a negligence claim to be successful, your attorney must establish that:
- The manufacturer had a duty to sell a safe product.
- The manufacturer breached its duty by selling an unsafe product when it knew or should have known that the product was defective.
- The claimant’s injuries were caused by the defective product.
Strict liability – All your product liability lawyer has to establish is that the product was defective and it directly caused the claimant to suffer an injury or illness. The manufacturer can be held strictly liable for any damages, even if great care was taken when the product was made.
Breach of warranty – Manufacturers and others can be held liable if they breach the express warranty or the implied warranty. The express warranty is one that is explicitly stated by the seller or manufacturer. The implied warranty is an implied promise by the liable party that the product will not cause harm if it is used as intended.
These are complex cases that require a detailed understanding of the law and how to prove that a manufacturer, seller or another party is liable for someone’s defective product injuries. You also need a law firm that is prepared to battle a team of lawyers that will try to exploit every loophole to avoid liability.
The Nye Law Group’s Bluffton product liability lawyers know exactly how to build a strong case that will counter the defense’s tactics.
