Protecting the Rights of Children Injured by Defective Products

Naturally, every parent worries about their child getting hurt and hopes that it will never happen. Unfortunately, product defects put children at risk of injury, often without the knowledge of their parents.

If your child has been injured due to a defective or dangerous children’s product, our lawyers at Peterson & Associates, P.C. want to help you hold the at-fault party accountable for allowing that product to go to market and cause your child injury. Through a lawsuit, you may be able to afford the medical care your child deserves, as well as win your family justice.

Pursuing a Children’s Product Liability Lawsuit in Kansas City

Kansas City families have five years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit against the liable party, per Mo. Ann. Stat. § 516.120. For children’s product liability cases, the suit will be filed against the product designer, manufacturer, retailer, or distributor.

Many families run into difficulty when determining which of the above parties can be held liable for what happened; fortunately, an attorney can help you identify the liable party — and prove that liability — through investigating the accident, the product itself, and any and all records of your child’s injuries.

Types of Product Defects & Negligence

Often, child product liability cases are brought forth over the following types of product defects and negligence:

  • Design defects: This is when the design of the product itself is dangerous, such as a diaper or lotion made with toxic chemicals.
  • Manufacturing defects: These are product defects that occur during manufacturing, such as if a car seat has a defective buckle or chest clip.
  • Marketing defects: This includes if the product was marketed as being safer than it truly is, as having some benefit that it does not truly have, or in some other misleading way.
  • Failure to warn: Per law, the manufacturer must warn you of any potential product hazards, such as choking hazards.
  • Breach of warranty: This simply means that a children’s product did not work as promised in the terms of use.
