Product liability is an area of personal injury law that involves injuries caused by defective products.

Defective Products

Defective products are ones that can cause injury or harm to a person due to a flaw in its design or manufacture, the way the product was intended for use, or the way the it was labeled. The manufacturer or the government agency that regulates the product may issue a recall if a defect is discovered. This action usually is not taken until someone has been injured or killed, however. Under most state laws, the manufacturer or anyone who sells defective products can be held liable for injuries caused by the products.

At our Kansas City, Missouri-area firm, all defective products claims are handled expertly by our product liability lawyers. We work with victims to hold the responsible parties liable for any injuries their merchandise has caused.

Defective Medical Devices

Medical devices include implanted heart valves and pacemakers, blood sugar monitors, dental braces, and more. These products, when unsafe or defective, can cause serious injuries and even possible death to the user.

The medical device industry in the United States is extremely competitive and many companies have sacrificed the quality of their products to stay ahead in the marketplace. In addition, some companies have provided insufficient warnings that fail to provide product users with vital and potentially life-altering information about the side effects of their product. Unfortunately, consumers are suffering because of these unsafe and defective products.
