St Louis Product Liability Lawyers

What is Product Liability?

Manufacturers have a legal responsibility to ensure that their products, when used in the intended manner, do not harm consumers. This responsibility extends to designers, wholesalers, retailers, and anyone else involved with the sale of consumer products. In the past, "buyer beware" was the prevailing legal notion. Current law, however, imposes strict liability on the people who make defective products. It assumes that manufacturers and sellers must take reasonable means to protect consumers. This includes providing warnings when potential hazards accompany specific products, as well as ensuring that defective or malfunctioning parts are not used in their products. An experienced St Louis products liability attorney will help you determine whether you have a viable product liability case.

There are four legal means for establishing liability in personal injury cases where a defective product has caused injury, each of which can hold the manufacturer, seller, or distributor of a product responsible for the harm it caused. An experienced defect product attorney in St Louis will help you determine whether these legal means exist in relation to your specific case facts.
