Dangerous Products

Defective products cause countless injuries and fatalities each year. The threats, unfortunately, are numerous and widespread. Children's toys, car parts, HVAC systems, poorly designed furniture and appliances, malfunctioning machinery, spoiled or adulterated food — any of these might be the cause of a serious accident or illness.

If you or a loved one has been a victim of a dangerous or defective product, the attorneys at Foster Law Firm, LLC, can help you pursue rightful compensation for medical care, pain and suffering, and related expenses. Based in Greenville, we serve throughout South Carolina and North Carolina. We're recovered millions of dollars for the individuals we've represented and stand ready to help you, too.

The Laws Governing Product Liability Cases

The laws that govern product liability cases are ever-changing. Generally, victims must be able to prove that their injury was caused by a defective good and that the good was defective at the time of purchase. Likewise, the party responsible for the defect must be identified — at times it's the manufacturer, at times the retailer who made the sale and at times the designer who thought up the product in the first place. Determining who's at fault, however, is not always a straightforward task. It is important to trace the product's chain of distribution and find the party liable.

Our lawyers have more than 60 years of combined experience — and a great deal of success — pursuing product liability claims. We have successfully handled a wide range of related matters, including those arising from:

  • Inadequate warning labels
  • Defects in design and/or manufacture
  • Retailers in breach of their due diligence
  • Unusually dangerous products, including hot water heaters, stoves, propane tanks and heaters, and other explosives
  • Improperly handled food products
  • Defective car or truck parts that lead to accidental injury
  • Dangerous and poorly labeled machinery that can cause injury on a construction site or other place of work

We work with a wide range of professionals and subject matter experts to identify the defect and the party at fault to get the compensatory financial damages that victims deserve and require. We are skilled at negotiating with insurance companies and opposing counsel to negotiate favorable settlements; however, we are unafraid to take matters to court when circumstances dictate it. In all matters, our clients' recovery is our chief priority.
