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.

Car accidents, motorcycle or 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.

If you or a loved one has suffered in some manner due to a defective product, contact our Kansas City personal injury lawyer at Meyerkord, Russell & Hergott to discuss what your legal options may be.

Because these types of claims require a skilled and experienced attorney, it is important to contact our office to review the facts of your case. You will need to provide some type of proof that you actually purchased and used that product and that it was the cause of whatever harm or injury you suffered. Some of these cases can be quite complex and require the use of experts to evaluate the product as well as your medical records, if warranted.

Handling Defective / Dangerous Product Injuries

Although there are strict consumer laws in place to protect a consumer, such as the Magnuson-Moss Warrant Act and the Uniform Commercial Code, manufacturers still continue to sell defective products. When you suffer an injury due to a defective or dangerous product, you will need a skilled Kansas City personal injury lawyer to competently document and investigate your claim. It must be shown that a manufacturer was aware of the defect that caused the injury and yet failed to warn consumer of the possible risks.

Most manufacturers have large attorney firms defending them when it comes to these types of claims, so it can be daunting to be able to prove liability. Nevertheless, Meyerkord, Russell & Hergott has the resources you will need in order to prove negligence and aggressively pursue compensation for your injuries.

Injuries From Dangerous and Defective Products

Serious injuries can result from a defective product, such as severe allergic reactions from tainted drywall, electrical burns from a malfunctioning heater or food poisoning from tainted food. These injuries will require costly medical treatment that could also affect your work. If you lost time from work while you recovered from your injury, you may be able to claim damages for lost income, in addition to medical expenses, emotional distress, and pain and suffering resulting from the injury.
