If there is a defect or dangerous condition in a manufactured product, it should be engineered out. If it cannot be engineered out, the manufacturer must provide adequate warning against the risk of harm. A manufacturer or distributor may attempt to ameliorate their liability by asserting that they gave proper warning. We will investigate issues such as whether the manufacturer of a product can be identified and whether or not proper warnings of potential dangers were given to determine which parties are accountable and what course of action we will take to obtain your full recovery.

What Do I Do If I'm Injured Because of a Dangerous Product?

What Do I Do If I'm Injured Because of a Dangerous Product in St. Louis?

Warning labels tell us when a product is dangerous, or when it can have dangerous effects if used wrong. But what do you when a product isn't labeled as dangerous, and you're either injured by the use of it or by the byproduct of using it? What should you do if you are injured by a dangerous product? What are your rights? Can you sue the manufacturer? Can you recover?

The answer is most likely yes. Let's take a couple of national cases into consideration. There are two relatively recent cases where products had dangerous side effects and were not labeled as such. Baby Powder and Weed Killer. In these cases, the individuals who used these products on a daily basis were much more likely to develop cancer as a result of using the product, but they were never warned.

But these are big cases. Maybe the product you used in St. Louis is made by a much smaller company, and there is not as much to win in an injury claim. Can you still recover? Do you still have rights? Yes, absolutely. Regardless of the size of the company, or your damages, if you were injured by a product, and the product wasn't labeled as dangerous and using the product could only be done in a way where a dangerous condition or outcome was likely, you can pursue the manufacturer for any damages you've sustained through the use of the product. Remember, dangerous products should be labeled as such, and if they are not and an accident happens, the manufacturer can often be held liable.

How Common Are Defective Products?

How Common Are Defective Products in Missouri?

The Consumer Product Safety Commission states that defective products account for over 29 million injuries and 21,000 deaths each year. According to data from the Insurance Information Institute, in 2019 the mean average that juries awarded plaintiffs in product liability claims was over $7 million, while the median was $2 million. That speaks to the incredible devastation an unsafe product can cause.

If you were one of the many people injured by a defective product, call a Burger Law defective products lawyer in St. Louis for compassionate, dedicated and knowledgeable support and legal representation.

How Do Product Liability Claims Work?

How Do Product Liability Claims Work in Missouri?

According to Missouri Revised Statute §537.760, you and your Missouri defective products lawyer can make a "strict liability" claim if three conditions are true:

  1. The defendant was part of the product's chain of distribution.
  2. The product was used in a manner easily anticipated.
  3. One or both of the following:
    1. The product was in a defective condition that was unreasonably dangerous when the product was sold and your injuries are a direct result of that defect, and/or
    2. You were injured because there was a dangerous characteristic of the product and the labeling or instructions did not give adequate warning.

The "chain of distribution" refers to anyone involved in the product from initial design to sale, including a distributor or vendor. Under Missouri Revised Statute §5537.762, someone whose sole connection to the case is that they sold the product may be dismissed from the case if:

  • The manufacturer is known, still exists and is able to pay for all of your damages.
  • The seller makes an affidavit under oath that they had nothing to do with the product beyond selling it.
  • No other party in the case comes forward with evidence that the seller was involved in any other part of the chain of distribution.
  • The motion to dismiss is filed within 60 days.

If the above conditions are met, the seller would then be dismissed without prejudice, meaning they are not permanently dismissed from the case. So, if later evidence shows that they were actually involved in the design or manufacture of the product, were otherwise responsible for the defect or the manufacturer cannot pay for all of your compensation, your defective products lawyer at Burger Law in St. Louis would then be able to call them back to court and ensure you get the full compensation you deserve.
