The American consumer is an essential component of the U.S. economy. When consumers purchase goods and services, they allow businesses to thrive financially. However, businesses should take special care to ensure the products they manufacturer do not present an unreasonable risk of injury to the consuming public. The average consumer puts a lot of faith into a business’ ability to create products that are safe when used for their intended purpose.
However, sometimes businesses market items that are unreasonably dangerous even if used as the manufacturer intended. If you’ve been injured by a defective or otherwise unsafe product, you may be entitled to compensation for physical, mental and economic injuries. Call the professional legal services of a Raleigh products liability attorney to assist you in investigating and pursuing legal remedies for your injuries. The consultation is free.

North Carolina Law on Products Liability
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. In North Carolina, a negligence standard, as set forth in N.C.G.S. 99B, is applied to a products liability claim. An injured consumer must prove by a preponderance of the evidence one of the following claims:
- 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.
In North Carolina, unfortunately, the manufacturer often will raise the defense of “contributory negligence”. 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. It is critical an injured consumer contacts an experienced products liability attorney or law firm, like Wilson Law, P.A. in Raleigh, North Carolina, to investigate the potential claim.
