Hurt By a Defective Product? Call (919) 800-0919 to Seek Justice
The average consumer puts a lot of faith into a business’ ability to create products that are safe when used for their intended purpose. Businesses should take special care to ensure the products they manufacturer do not present an unreasonable risk of injury to the consuming public.

Do I Have Grounds for a Product Liability Lawsuit?
North Carolina products liability law is different than many other states. We do not recognize “strict liability” as a basis for recovery in North Carolina. Strict liability means that a person or corporation is responsible for the harm caused by their actions, regardless of if negligence or wrongdoing was involved.
Since North Carolina doesn't recognize strict liability, an injured person must therefore prove that some factor of negligence was involved, as set forth in N.C.G.S. 99B.
- The product causing injury was manufactured or designed in an unreasonable manner creating a risk of harm to the consumer;
- The manufacturer failed to adequately warn the consumer of the dangers associated with the product; or,
- The manufacturer failed to give proper instructions for the product’s use.
Proving a product liability claim is not easy, but our experienced legal is equipped with the skills and resources to investigate your case and help you recover the compensation you deserve. Contact our Raleigh product liability attorney today!
Can Contributory Negligence Affect My Case?
In North Carolina, the manufacturer often will raise the defense of “contributory negligence” in a product liability case. If the injured consumer contributed in any way to his or her injury, such as failing to properly use the product, he or she could be barred from recovery.
North Carolina's pure contributory rule prevents a personal injury injury plaintiff from recovering compensation if it can be proven they share even 1% fault for their injuries.
