Helping You After Faulty Fireworks Injuries
The Rick Hall Law Firm, LLC represents people who have been severely injured by unsafe and faulty fireworks. We bring years of experience to help us litigate these claims in favor of our clients. Our attorneys have traveled to various courts across the U.S. to argue against negligent manufacturers and distributors nationwide.
Fireworks injuries in South Carolina can result in severe and permanent injuries:
- Extensive burns all over the body
- Hand injuries, including loss of fingers, burns, etc.
- Eye damage, including partial & full blindness
- Other injuries resulting from explosions
- Scarring and disfigurement
Fireworks, by design, are volatile products that must be handled with care and used as intended. However, even under those circumstances, improperly designed and negligently distributed fireworks often malfunction and cause severe harm. Many fireworks are illegally imported into the United States and may not meet industry standards or consumer product safety regulations.
Our firm can help you bring a claim against the negligent parties involved in your accident. We have handled claims from basic design flaws to imported fireworks that were illegally distributed.
General Product Liability & Bodily Injury in South Carolina
Product liability law is built on the legal foundation of tort law. The law mandates that a consumer has the right to expect that the products they buy will meet performance claims in a safe manner. When a product, used as intended, malfunctions and does harm and bodily injury, the consumer may bring a claim for product liability.
Our firm helps clients prove that the product in question was directly responsible for the injury and damages at hand. We may argue these cases on any of the following grounds:
- Design flaw: Some defective or dangerous products involve a flaw in the product’s initial design. If it can be proven that the design is what makes the product dangerous and that nothing in the manufacturing process caused it, designers can be held responsible for damages.
- Manufacturer errors: One of the most common types of product liability claims involves a product that was defectively manufactured, meaning some flaw or error was made during the manufacturing process at the factory.
- Failure to warn of potential dangers: Product companies are obligated to provide adequate instructions or warnings about how to safely use the product.
- Breach of product warranty
In order to have a successful claim, you must be able to prove that the product was dangerous and defective and that you were using the product as it was intended. You must also show that you directly sustained injuries and other damages as a result of using the defective product.
Safety standards and regulations are there for the very important reason of keeping people safe. Ignoring or failing to adhere to these accepted rules of design, manufacturing, and marketing is an extreme violation of public safety and punishable by legal consequences.
