What Damages Can I Recover in a Spartanburg Product Liability Claim?
When a defective product attorney from our team files a claim, the goal is to secure a financial recovery for our client while holding the liable party accountable for their negligence in creating and marketing a dangerous item. Companies have a responsibility to keep their customers safe from injury.
We use insurance claims or civil lawsuits to prove the company acted carelessly or recklessly and harmed our client. These are the only options for getting justice for those who suffered injuries because of a defective product.
In product liability cases, the settlements or court awards we seek and recover help compensate our clients for their related losses and costs. We believe that no one should ever have to struggle to pay expenses related to an accident they did not cause. The damages we pursue for our clients may include:
- Medical bills to date
- Future treatment and care related to their injuries
- Lost income, wages, and benefits
- Diminished earning potential for lasting injuries
- Related expenses
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Other intangible losses

Who Is Liable for My Dangerous Product Injuries?
When a person uses a product for its intended purpose and it causes harm, they may have a product liability case against the designer, manufacturer, retailer, or another responsible party. In many cases, all of these are the same company.
A Spartanburg product liability lawyer from Hammack Law Firm can determine if you have a case and who you can sue during the earliest stages of reviewing your claim. There does not have to be a product recall to recover compensation in this type of case. In fact, many products at the center of these claims are still on the market.
How Defective Products Cause Injuries
Some of the most common defective products include:
- Vehicles and car parts, including tires
- Medications and medical devices
- Appliances and tools
- Toys and children’s products
When it comes to product liability cases, a company may be negligent in several ways. These include:
- Defective design
- Defective manufacturing
- Breach of warranty
Product liability cases are based on strict liability. We do not have to prove exactly how the company was negligent and caused your injuries. That would be a very tough standard for an individual building a case against a large corporation. Instead, we only have to show that the product had a defect and caused your injuries.
The Role of a Product Liability Lawyer
Our Spartanburg personal injury lawyers can:
- Investigate your injuries
- Determine if and how the product is defective
- File a claim against the liable party or parties on your behalf
We can often reach a settlement agreement with the company without suing, although we will still prepare your case for trial. Dangerous product cases also sometimes support class action lawsuits or multi-district litigation, which are types of mass torts where many victims of the same company work together to hold them responsible.
Timeline for Suing a Product Manufacturer or Another Liable Party
Sometimes we have to sue the product manufacturer or another liable party to recover fair compensation for our clients. If we cannot negotiate an appropriate settlement, we have up to three years from the date of your injuries to sue under S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530.
If we miss this deadline because we do not know about your case in time, it will be difficult or impossible to recover the compensation you deserve.
