Info from Our South Carolina Injury Lawyers
Mass torts involve a large number of people injured through the conduct of one or more companies or people, usually through exposing people to dangerous products. The South Carolina injury attorneys at McGowan, Hood & Felder, LLC have represented clients involving a number of prescription medications, medical devices and food products. These types of cases range from drugs recalled by the Food and Drug Administration to medical devices found to cause severe injury to tainted food products that manufacturers place into the stream of commerce.
The South Carolina injury lawyers at McGowan, Hood & Felder, LLC will also represent people who have cases involving a wide range of other products, such as asbestos, defective pacemakers and defibrillators and Bausch & Lomb ReNu brand contact lens solution.

Our South Carolina injury attorneys can conduct numerous witness depositions and document gathering at once, with the information centralized and shared among the parties for each individual trial or settlement negotiation.
