St. Louis Product Liability Attorneys
Dangerous and Defective Products Can Change Consumers’ Lives. Our Attorneys Aren’t Afraid to Take on Big Manufacturers.
Product liability law protects consumers in the event a dangerous or defective product makes it to the market. The manufacturers, distributors, and sellers of products are required to test them and provide warnings for any hazards. If they fail to do so, they may be held liable for damages.
Each year, approximately 27,000 people die and many more are severely hurt due to product injuries. Some studies show that more than 220,000 children may be treated in emergency rooms each year for injuries caused by unsafe toys. In fact, these toys and other defective products for children and babies make up more than one-third of the product recalls filed each year.
If you, your child, or another family member has been injured because of a defective or dangerous product, our attorneys are here to represent you in negotiations and in front of a court. Meyerkord & Kurth has an experienced team that is here to strategize on your behalf.
Any commercial good can be involved in a product liability case if it has been poorly designed or made. Consumers can suffer serious injuries and property damage—some products have even been known to cause house fires.
There are many kinds of defective products that can cause injuries, including:
- Defective medical devices
- Consumer and household products
- Infants’ or children's products
- Automobiles, parts, and products
- Sport utility vehicles (SUVs) causing rollovers
- Machinery and factory equipment
- Toxic chemical exposure
- Talcum powder
- Construction equipment
- Exercise equipment
Lately, the public has been sending a signal to big business that their negligence will not be tolerated. Consumers have banded together to take on companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Tesla, and Amazon.com, among others. These companies have billions they can use to fight back, but money should not be the deciding factor. As consumer advocates with families of our own, we do not tolerate defective product injuries or wrongful deaths, and we are ready to do what it takes to secure the compensation that is warranted in your case.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a faulty or dangerous product, you could be eligible to sue. We are here to help you figure out your legal options and pursue compensation however possible. However, beating big corporations in court is not easy.
In order to win a product injury case, you must prove that a product:
- was excessively dangerous,
- did not have proper safety warnings,
- had an inherent defect, and/or
- was manufactured poorly.
We’ve helped clients prove these points and show the vast damages dangerous products have caused them and their families. We aren’t afraid to take your case to trial to help you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible.
