Overview

Stephanie Flynn is a steadfast litigation attorney, focusing primarily in the areas of products liability, toxic and mass torts, personal injury, and transportation litigation in both federal and state courts. She also has extensive experience in appellate courts.

Stephanie has represented a broad range of clients in her products liability practice including manufacturers, suppliers and retailers of:

  • automotive equipment and products
  • industrial equipment
  • latex products
  • pharmaceuticals
  • recreational products

In addition to product defects, warnings and warranty issues, her experience includes catastrophic injuries stemming from allegedly defective products.  Her cases have ranged from injuries due to allegedly defective lumber handling equipment, to cases involving death and quadriplegia following a catastrophic roll-over vehicle accident. Stephanie’s participation in these types of matters has extended from the commencement of litigation through complete resolution.

Stephanie also has a depth of knowledge in mass and toxic tort litigation.  She has been greatly involved in the defense of insulation subcontractors, and an array of product manufacturers in asbestos litigation for their former production or sale of asbestos containing:

  • electrical wiring and cable
  • gaskets and packing
  • friction products
  • refractory material
  • pumps and valves
  • automotive products
  • electrical equipment including circuit breakers and arc chutes
  • protective clothing

In order to effectively defend these products, Stephanie has engrossed herself in the industries and facilities in which these products were used. These include nuclear power plants, steam generating stations, manufacturing plants, naval bases and ships, and textile mills.

Her experience with toxic torts has also gone beyond asbestos containing products to defending cases involving exposure to silica, chlorine gas, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, aluminum oxide, diesel fumes, mixed dusts, and acrylonitrile.

Stephanie’s attention to detail and writing skills have translated to a strong motions and appellate practice.  Having been involved in multiple appeals, she has argued cases before both the South Carolina Court of Appeals and the South Carolina Supreme Court.
