Experienced in Product Defect and Product Liability Lawsuits

When a company makes or sells a product, the consumer who buys it has a legal right to expect that it will be reasonably safe when the product is used for its intended purpose-a defect in the way a product is designed or made could lead to serious personal injury. If you or someone you love has been injured by an unsafe product, contact the experienced St. Louis product liability lawyers at Bruntrager & Billings P.C.

Product Safety

The consumer who spends hard-earned wages on a product never anticipates that using it could lead to such tragic consequences as the loss of a limb, the use of an eye or even the end of a life-yet countless people in the United States are hurt or killed each year by defective products.

Unsafe products that have recently made headlines include:

  • Strollers with design flaws that can lead to finger amputation
  • Cribs with dangerous gaps that can cause strangulation
  • Rechargeable batteries that are fire hazards
  • Window blinds with pull cords that pose a danger of strangulation
  • All-terrain vehicles with a dangerous tendency to roll over
  • Defective oxygen tanks used by firefighters that run out of air without warning
  • Automobile seat belts that don’t remain fastened in crashes
  • Defective tires that are subject to tread separation
  • Automobile gas tanks with design flaws that make them prone to explosion

Product Liability Cases

If you or a loved one has been injured or a family member has been killed by an unsafe product, it is important to contact an attorney to discuss your case. The St. Louis product liability attorneys at Bruntrager & Billings will investigate the accident to determine whether a design or manufacturing defect is to blame.

After reviewing the facts, we advise the client on how to proceed. If a product liability or wrongful death lawsuit is filed, the client may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, current and future medical expenses, property damage and pain and suffering. If the defect was grossly negligent or intentional, punitive damages may be sought. Since 1954, the attorneys at Bruntrager & Billings have helped clients who have been harmed by unsafe products.
