Fight For Your Consumer Right To A Safe Product
When you purchase a product from a trusted manufacturer, you are doing so with the confidence that you have the right to be safe during its usage. When a product that you have used or purchased does not perform correctly, and you or a loved one is injured as a result, you must seek justice!
DiPasquale Moore can handle a wide variety of product liability claims and has successfully recovered significant amounts of compensation for past clients. With strong attention to detail and the ability to perform investigative research, we will do whatever it takes to help you get back on your feet.
Who can be held liable for my defective product?
Product liability claims require proof of negligence and/or proof of a breach of warranty on behalf of the manufacturer or supplier. There are several different kinds of product defects that can point to negligence and are often recognized by the court.
- Defective manufacture of a product, when there was an error in making the specific product
- Defective design of a product, when the design is inherently dangerous in all products
- Failure to provide proper warnings of use, ensuring extra care and caution during use
If a product is defective, it means that it was designed with these defects present or developed defects during the manufacturing process. Additionally, the manner in which the product was shipped or stored before the purchase can cause issues with the product that lead to illness or injury.
With so many ways that product liability can occur, the law seeks to hold all that contributed to your injury accountable, from the designer of the device all the way to the retailer.
Different Types of Negligence in Product Liability Cases
Depending on which type of negligence applies to your case, our compassionate Kansas City product liability attorneys can work with you to develop an effective strategy. For example, if you purchase cough syrup that has been tainted with an additional substance, you may have a defective manufacture claim.
If the ingredients in the cough syrup resulted in serious health issues, then it may be defective design. Finally, if the product failed to warn you that drinking milk in combination with taking the cough syrup could cause a dangerous reaction, you could have a failure-to-provide-warning claim.
In order to best determine whether or not you have a valid defective products claim, you should consult with a compassionate and knowledgeable attorney.

Preserve All Evidence of a Defective Product
If you or a loved was harmed by a defective product, it is important that you keep the product as in much of the same condition as it was in when it caused you harm, including all packaging materials, and contact an attorney.
Some manufacturers will try to claim they will test the product on their own and destroy evidence. With a defective products lawyer on your side, you put yourself in the best position for success.
Can You Prove Breach of Warranty cases?
When proving a breach of warranty, it generally means proving that the product did not do what the company said it was going to do. This can make it difficult to file a claim against big-name companies, as they typically have skilled legal teams to maneuver such claims.
You need a tough attorney that can even the playing field in these situations. Our Kansas City defective product attorneys are best poised to handle your claim and recover the fair amount of compensation you deserve.
Benefits of Filing a Product Liability lawsuit
When a manufacturer has decided that cutting costs in the development of a product is more important than the safety of those using it, they must be held accountable.
Not only will your claim compensate you for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering that occurred in connection with the injury, but it will also be a step in preventing others from suffering the same injuries.
