Understanding Product Liability
Simply stated, product liability concerns the legal responsibility of companies and manufacturers that design and sell products to the general public. When injuries or illnesses are the result of contact and everyday use of these dangerous products, the companies that make them are held responsible.
Liability Cases Our St. Louis Product Liability Lawyer’s Handle
Recent media attention regarding massive toy recalls as well as the recall of other products manufactured in China has thrown the spotlight on product safety. Our firm handles cases involving injuries and illnesses caused by lead paint exposure in children’s toys or harm to pets or humans due to harmful ingredients in food.
When you purchase a new car, no doubt safety is an important issue for you. Yet, when auto components fail to perform — airbags or brake systems, for example — and serious injury is the result, you need legal representation to help you pursue your claim.
Product Liability cases almost always have a big corporation on the other side. As a result you need an aggressive investigation from the outset. From the very beginning of your case, we take a proactive stance on discovery — visiting the site of the injury, examining the products involved, obtaining lab tests, consulting with experts, and interviewing witnesses to better understand the specific details of the case. By thoroughly investigating the facts, we are able to present a strong case for our clients.
