Kansas City Product Liability Attorney
Injured by a faulty product? We can help you fight for compensation.
A defective product can include any type of product a consumer uses, such as food, a vehicle, drywall, or a baby's crib. If the product becomes dangerous when being used as intended because of negligence on the part of the manufacturer, a person may have the right to present a claim against the responsible party. Currently, all of the products named above have caused injury or harm to unsuspecting individuals who expected the products they purchased to work as intended. Food poisoning can be caused from consuming infected food sold in stores or served at restaurants.
truck accidents can be caused by failing brakes or defective tires causing property damage and
catastrophic injuries. Toxic drywall and dangerous cribs have all led to injuries and even
death in some instances. When manufacturers fail to take the safety of their public before their interest in profits, they must be held accountable for the damages they cause.
