Defective Products that Often Result in Injury in Kansas City, Missouri


Literally any type of product can be defective, whether a product such as food is contaminated, there is an error or mistake in manufacturing, or a flaw in the design of a product.  There are countless examples, however some of the most common products involved in lawsuits include:

  • Medical devices
  • Automobiles or their components (tires, air bags, etc.)
  • Prescription medications
  • Toys
  • Food products
  • Safety equipment
  • Chemicals
  • Industrial equipment
  • Many more...

While many products may not have a manufacturing defect or design flaw, they may still be potentially dangerous and must be properly labeled in terms of use instructions or warnings to the consumer.  For instance, mini-blinds include warning labels advising consumers of the dangers of a child getting strangled in cords used to adjust the blinds.  When a manufacturer fails to provide proper warning or use instruction, the company may be held liable for injury and monetary damages.
