Manufacturers are required to make sure the products they sell to consumers work properly and are safe to use. Unfortunately, the desire to boost their profit margin often compels manufacturers to cut corners and sacrifice consumer safety.

Product Liability Cases in North Carolina
Product liability claims can be long, involved cases that require extensive resources to pursue through litigation. Many of these cases involve a failure to warn. In order to recover compensation, you'll need to demonstrate that the manufacturer knew about the dangers associated with the defective product and failed to warn consumers of these dangers.
North Carolina Statute § 99B controls product liability claims. This statute is exceedingly manufacturer friendly, making it harder for plaintiffs to achieve a successful outcome. For this reason, it's crucial that you work with an experienced defective product attorney who knows these state laws and has the resources to battle the high powered legal teams employed by manufacturers.
