When A Defective Product Causes Harm In Missouri
Corporations design, manufacture and distribute thousands of products each year. Unfortunately, some of these products do not receive proper testing and do not contain the necessary consumer safeguards. Too often, these faulty products result in serious injury and even death to unsuspecting consumers. To make matters worse, many of those injured are not sure how to move forward and take action.
An effective litigation attorney from the Kansas City personal injury law firm of Norton & Spencer, P.C., does. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a faulty product, we understand the feelings of betrayal and uncertainty that can accompany the already difficult situation. With more than 60 years of combined litigation experience in Missouri, we apply our approach to advocacy that has obtained more than $50 million to date for clients in some of the state’s most complex personal injury cases.
Answers To Your Questions About Dangerous Products
Do you have questions about product liability claims? Our product liability attorneys in Kansas City can answer them for you. To get started you can read this section, which has a few of our personal injury lawyers’ answers to our most frequently asked questions.
Do I need the receipt for the product that harmed me to file a claim?
Not necessarily, though it can help your claim a great deal. A dangerous product lawyer can often prove that you purchased an item by examining your debit card or credit card history. You do not have to have purchased a product to file a claim against the manufacturer or vendor.
What are the most common dangerous and defective products?
We handle product liability cases involving all the most common dangerous and defective products as well as rare ones. Some of these include:
- Seat belts
- Cherry pickers
- Appliances, instruments and construction tools
- Toxic chemicals
- Exercise, sports and amusement equipment
- Prescription medications
- Medical devices
Because of the complexity of these cases, we fuse our personal approach – working one on one with each client – with an aggressive approach backed by more than 60 years of litigation experience. In addition, we take cases exclusively on contingency and never collect any fees until we are able to collect damages on behalf of our clients.
How do I know if I have a case?
To recover financial compensation against the company that produced, designed or sold a harmful product, you need to prove these criteria:
- The party in question owed a duty of care to make the product safe
- The party failed to do so
- The product was dangerous or defective when it left the other party’s possession
- The defect caused an injury to you
- As a result, you have damages
Do you believe that you have all these elements in your case? Speak with a product injury attorney immediately.
