Manufacturers have a duty to provide safe products for their customers.

Product liability claims can be very complex. North Carolina’s product liability statute is found in N.C. Gen. Stat. § 99B. It generally permits three types of negligence based claims in product liability cases:

Manufacturing Defects: The product itself is compromised because of some problem with the fabrication of the product.

Design Defects: The product was poorly designed and unreasonably failed to adopt a less dangerous design.

Inadequate Warning Defects: The product lacked the warnings necessary to inform consumers of its potential dangers.

Consumers are entitled to be safe from products that are unreasonably likely to cause harm. If a defective product injures you, many different parties may be responsible. Responsible parties may include the designer, manufacturer, or distributor. The North Carolina product liability attorneys at Horton & Mendez are versed in investigating the potential parties involved so they can be held responsible.

Our history as former insurance defense lawyers gives us insider knowledge on how big companies and the insurance companies will defend product liability claims. These can be challenging cases to prove, and manufacturers will often fight tooth and nail. The successful prosecution of these cases often involves retaining highly specialized engineering and other experts. At Horton & Mendez, we put a network of respected experts to work for our clients instead of for the insurance companies.
