What should I do if I am hurt by a defective product?

After seeking medical treatment, it is absolutely vital that you preserve the product and evidence in its current condition. Under South Carolina law, it is impossible to prove a product is defective if you do not have the product on hand. The reason for this is that product liability requires expert opinion of engineers, designers, etc. to test the product and determine its design and function. If you have been injured by a defective product, I would contact an experienced South Carolina product liability lawyer as soon as possible so that they can preserve the evidence and protect your right if you wish to pursue a claim.
