If there is a defect or dangerous condition in a manufactured product, it should be engineered out. If it cannot be engineered out, it should be adequately warned against. Thus, as a part of a products liability claim, the manufacturer or distributor can attempt to ameliorate his/her liability by asserting that they properly warned against potential dangers in a product (for instance, wear safety goggles while operating a chainsaw). However, sometimes manufacturers provide warnings that are inadequate and do not clearly inform the purchasers or users of a product about its dangers.
There are a myriad of products with safety defects that Gary Burger and his associates, along with many other personal injury lawyers, have worked tirelessly to improve the safety of in the United States and abroad. It’s important to understand that if a manufacturer cannot be identified for an unsafe consumer product, the distributors who handle the product in the “stream of commerce” can be held liable for injuries resulting from the defect or dangerous condition. A dangerous condition from a product can cause injuries and even death. As St Louis product liability lawyers, we often review the Consumer Products Safety Commission’s bulletins and postings to find out what products are dangerous or have become recalled.

The challenge in the case was identifying the manufacturer, which we were never able to do. However, under §402 of the Restatement of Torts and Missouri law, a distributor is liable for defect of the property unless it is able to identify and bring into the case the original manufacturer of the product.Continue Reading
