The makers of products we buy in stores and online have a legal duty to ensure that their products are safe for the intended use. Sadly, design defects and manufacturing errors can lead to severe accidents and injuries, affecting countless consumers. When you suffer the effects of corporate oversight or intentional misconduct, you deserve justice.
Proving that a product’s maker failed their legal obligations is difficult, especially considering these companies have the money and legal resources to fight lawsuits. That’s where OnderLaw comes in.
With our Webster Groves defective products lawyers by your side, you can rest assured knowing your case is in good hands. Our injury attorneys are proud of our commitment to standing up to corporations and advocating for our injured friends and neighbors. We are with you every step of the way, fighting for what’s right.
The fact that a product led to your injury is not enough to win a defective product case. Missouri Statute § 537.760 says that a person seeking compensation must prove that a maker was negligent by using a defective design or allowing a manufacturing error. This can be difficult to do on your own, especially while you are recovering from severe injuries. OnderLaw will handle every aspect of your defective product case and support you throughout recovery.
Defective design cases allege the product’s design or formula is inherently dangerous. Even if the product is manufactured correctly, the very nature of the item makes it hazardous.
In these cases, it is often necessary to work with an expert in the field who has knowledge about the product. By working with experts, our Webster Groves attorneys can show that the product design carried inherent flaws and that an alternative design would have made it safer.
The other main way to prove fault in a product liability case is to show that an error occurred during manufacturing. This could involve chemical contamination, faulty machinery on the factory floor, or employee error that resulted in a defective product.
Regardless of the type of product defect, state law places a strict time limit on these cases. Under MO Stat. § 516.120, the current deadline for most claims is five years from the date of the injury.
If you suffered harm because of a dangerous product, contact a Webster Groves lawyer at our firm as soon as possible. We will be your guiding hand when you need us most.
Proving that a product was defective is only one part of a successful case. All cases must revolve around the physical injuries that result from dangerous consumer goods. These can include anything from cuts, scrapes, and burns to severe spinal cord damage and traumatic brain injuries. Negligent product makers must provide compensation to cover all costs of necessary medical care.
Our dedicated product liability attorneys will listen to your story and understand the full impact of your injuries on your life. Your claim should account for every loss you suffered because of the defective product. This can include compensation for emotional trauma, decreased quality of life, and lost income if the incident has kept you out of work. We know this is more than just a legal case; this is your life, and we are here to help you move forward from this traumatic incident.
Defective products are a major cause of personal injuries in Webster Groves and the rest of the state. Under the law, companies are obligated to produce items that are safe for their intended use. Despite this duty, they often allow errors in the manufacturing or design process to affect customers.
