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.
Call Peterson & Associates, P.C. at (816) 298-8708 today. Our Kansas City defective children’s products lawyers can discuss your legal options in a free consultation.
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.
Often, child product liability cases are brought forth over the following types of product defects and negligence:
