Have You Been Injured By A Defective Product?

Big or small, all manufacturers, designers, and retailers all have two things in common:
  1. They design products intended to be mass-produced for consumers all over the world
  2. They have an obligation to ensure that those products are safe for consumers to use
When retailers fail to protect the safety of their consumers, they can be held legally responsible for their consumers' injuries. If you have been injured by a product through no fault of your own, you may have the grounds for a defective product case at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Defective Product Cases - Types of Defects

Defective product cases arise when consumers are harmed, injured, or even killed while using a product as it was intended to be used. (Please be aware that if you were injured while misusing the product, the manufacturer cannot be held responsible). Product liability cases can include a wide variety of products, including poorly designed...
  • Tools
  • Machinery
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Recreational Products
  • And More
If you or someone you know has been injured by a defective or dangerous product, you may have the grounds to file a product liability case at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Defective Product Cases - Failure to Warn

Defective product cases typically come in one of two forms. Consumers may be injured while using the product as directed, or they may be injured from a danger associated with the product that they were not made aware of. Manufacturers have a duty to provide clear, noticeable warnings of the potential dangers associated with their products so consumers can take measures to ensure their own safety. If a product is distributed without adequate warning messages, it is considered defective and the retailer or distributor may be liable for any resulting injuries.

If the retailer becomes aware of a defect in their product, they may issue a product recall to remove the dangerous product from distribution and to warn consumers of the potential danger.

Defective Product Cases - Examples of Common Claims

If you or someone you love has been injured at the hands of a negligent manufacturer or their defective product, it is important that you seek legal action; you may be eligible to receive financial compensation for your injuries, medical bills, and the pain and suffering associated with your injury.
