Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC, is currently evaluating burn injuries as a result of defective citronella
candles. There has been recent media attention of people seriously burned
as a result of malfunctioning candles manufactured by Napa Home and Garden.
We have been contacted by clients who have suffered property damage or
injury caused by overheating or exploding candles sold in local retail
and home specialty stores.
Under South Carolina law both the manufacturer of a defective product
as well as the store may be liable for all injuries sustained as a result
of a defective product design or manufacturing process. In a case involving
a burn injury damages may include scaring, lost wages, pain and suffering
and medical bills.
