Missouri Defective Products Lawyers
HELPING INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE BEEN INJURED BY A DEFECTIVE PRODUCT SEEK COMPENSATION FOR THEIR INJURIES
When people purchase a product at the store or order it online, they expect that when they open and use the product, it will work the way that it is supposed to work. However, this does not always happen, and when consumers suffer injuries that are caused by a defective product, they may be able to assert a legal claim against the manufacturer of the defective product for monetary damages.
Product manufacturers have a duty to ensure that their products are in a reasonably safe condition when they are released into the marketplace. If you or someone you love has suffered one or more injuries in an accident that was caused by a defective product, you may be eligible to assert a legal claim or file a lawsuit against the product manufacturer.

Please give us a call today at (816) 364-1650 or contact us online to learn more about how we can assist you with pursuing the compensation that you need for your injuries.
TYPES OF PRODUCT DEFECTS
There are various types of product defects that can ultimately give rise to injuries that may lead to a defective product claim. Some common types of product defects that can give rise to a legal claim include the following:
- Manufacturing product defects – A manufacturing defect exists when something goes wrong during the manufacturing process that causes the product to malfunction when it is purchased and used (in an intended manner) by the consumer. A defect in the manufacturing process, for example, might cause the product to explode when the consumer purchases and uses it, resulting in the consumer suffering an injury.
- Design defects – A design defect exists when a product is not designed in the proper manner, and this defective design causes the consumer to suffer an injury. When determining whether or not a design defect exists, the costs of precautions may be balanced against the likelihood of injury associated with the product.
- Warning defects – A warning defect exists when warnings associated with product use are absent from the product or are not located in an area where the consumer is reasonably expected to read and appreciate them. A warning defect may exist, for example, if the product contains small pieces, no warning is present, and a child puts a piece in his or her mouth and swallows it, resulting in a serious injury or death.
An experienced defective product lawyer can review the circumstances leading up to your injuries and determine if you are eligible to file a defective product claim in your case.
COMMON INJURIES THAT RESULT FROM DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS
Specific injuries resulting from a defective product depend upon a variety of factors, including the size and shape of the product and the type of product that is allegedly defective. Common injuries that can result from product defects include the following:
- Broken bones and fractures
- Soft tissue injuries or muscular contusions
- Eye injuries
- Cuts, lacerations, and abrasions
- Burn injuries
If you have suffered any of these injuries as a result of a defective product, you should contact an experienced defective product lawyer as soon as possible.
AVAILABLE DAMAGES IN DEFECTIVE PRODUCT CASES

- Payment of all related medical and therapy bills
- Compensation for lost wages
- Compensation for physical and mental pain and suffering
- Recovery for loss of earning capacity
- Compensation for permanent injuries and damages
