Saint Louis, Missouri Products Liability Attorneys
When you purchase a product, whether it is a medicine, toy, or tool, you trust that it will be safe to use. Why would a product on the shelves of your local grocery store cause an injury to you or your family member?
Product liability law is designed to protect consumers like you against products that are defective or unreasonably dangerous. Manufacturers and product designers, along with other parties who are selling in the supply chain, are required to do so reasonably and take ordinary care so that products can be used safely for the purpose intended. But as you hear on the news, recalls happen and defects occur, leaving consumers at risk for injury.
It is a very complex area of law, but our St. Louis lawyers are experienced in all areas of products liability law and will be able to determine whether you have a case with legal merit.
Products liability comprises a vast range of items from those we touch every day to the components in equipment, medical devices, household goods and pharmaceuticals. The following is a list of just a few of the products that may cause harm:
