Products Liability

Our attorneys have extensive experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in products liability cases. We handle cases involving a wide range of product defect claims, including farm machinery, household products, automobiles, workplace machinery, construction products, prescription medication, children’s toys, and many other types of consumer products. We also have broad experience in handling cases involving marketing defects, such as allegations that a product’s warning label was insufficient.

Product defect cases often involve catastrophic injuries to individuals. When representing plaintiffs, we take pride in our ability to effectively communicate the damages our client has suffered, who is responsible, and why. We understand that individuals who have been injured have suffered a tremendous interruption in their lives. We strive to build a relationship with our clients as we handle their case.

Products liability cases are often highly technical. At Osburn, Hine & Yates, LLC, we regularly recruit leading experts in the fields of products liability, safety standards and practices, warning standards, and engineering. Our attorneys have great skill in communicating to jurors the complex technical aspects of product liability issues. We use advanced courtroom technology methods and visual aids to simplify the issues in a way that jurors can understand.

Products liability cases also require significant investigative ability in determining which companies are responsible for the injury. When representing defendants in product liability cases, our attorneys effectively investigate the facts to determine whether other entities are responsible. In our products liability defense practice, we take pride in our ability to offer high-quality representation on a cost-effective basis. We handle cases for defendants throughout Southeast Missouri and know how to effectively present a case to jurors in our region. Our broad experience in handing these types of cases on both sides provides us with an understanding of the law that results in more efficient and cost-effective representation.
