Product Liability

St. Louis Product Liability Lawyer

Product manufacturers release thousands of consumer products every year. Many of these products are safe and effective; however, when these large corporations put profits before the safety of the customers who will use their products, injuries and even deaths can result. When this occurs, these manufacturers and others in the supply chain may be held accountable for the injuries their products have caused. In Missouri, this is known as strict liability. 

At Labovitz Law Firm, our St. Louis product liability attorney represents clients who have sustained injuries and losses when using a defective or dangerous product as directed. Attorney Brent Labovitz is a seasoned personal injury lawyer with valuable trial skills that can be used on your behalf in making injury claims against manufacturers. 

These companies are often large corporations with extensive financial resources and their own legal teams designed to defend them against claims, who will fight back in every way they can to reduce or deny their liability. When going up against such massive forces, you will need a tough and highly skilled attorney like Brent on your side to level the playing field.

Products that May Be the Subject of a Claim

Product liability applies to all consumer products, including but not limited to:

  • Autos and auto parts, such as tires, brakes, airbags, seatbelts, accelerators, and more
  • Power tools
  • Appliances, such as washers, dryers, A/C units, and more
  • Fire alarms
  • Children’s toys, gear, and furniture
  • Cosmetics
  • Medical drugs and medical devices
  • Food
  • Electric blankets and other electrical products
  • Pressure cookers
  • Industrial equipment

Almost any product can malfunction, have side effects, or otherwise cause injuries when used by consumers because they were not properly tested or vetted for safety before their release into the marketplace. 

Examples of dangerous or defective product cases in the recent past include class action lawsuits against the manufacturer of the weedkiller Roundup, claims of injuries against the makers of certain metal-on-metal hip replacement devices, and cancer claims against the manufacturers of talcum powder. 

Types of Defects in Consumer Products

Consumer products can be defective in three different ways:

  • Their design can be flawed or inherently defective
  • They can have been manufactured with defective materials or processes
  • Their marketing can lack important safety instructions, warnings about side effects, or information about their intended and proper use

If a product has been shown to be defective and causing injuries to unsuspecting victims, a civil claim for damages can be sought. These damages are similar to those of any personal injury claim, including medical expenses, lost wages or income, pain and suffering, emotional distress, property damage, and more, based on the nature and extent of your injuries and how they will affect your quality of life going forward.
