Who is Responsible?

Not all Americans are allowed to file a product liability lawsuit in the recovery of damages if hurt by the use of a manufactured product. The injuries from a defective product must have been anticipated by the manufacturer in order to file a successful product liability claim.

The foreseeable victim isn’t just restricted to those individuals who purchased the product, but also any injured bystanders that may have been close to the product as it malfunctioned.

However, if other individuals were hurt in odd circumstances in which the manufacturer could not have foreseen an accident, then those individuals may not be privy to a product liability lawsuit.


The law will hold several parties through the manufacturing chain and distribution process accountable for injuries caused by a product. Some of the individuals responsible may include:

  • Distributors
  • Retailers
  • Assembly workers
  • Testing labs
  • Repairers
  • Parts dealer

All claims related to product liability are based on several factors, which include:

  • Strict liability
  • Negligence
  • Breach of warranty
  • Consumer protection claims

It doesn’t really matter where the injury took place. In order to be successful in a product liability case, the St. Louis product liability attorney must prove that the defective product was the cause.

It can be challenging to prove these cases. There are three product defects that place responsibility on the manufacturer and supplier, which include:

  • Flaws in the product’s design
  • Defects to the design specification by the manufacturer
  • Defects in product labeling or not enough instructions on how to use the product

Mr. Phillips represented my wife in a worker comp case where her neck was injured. We initially tried to fight the workers comp insurance group on our own and was given inconsistent answers and incorrect diagnosis of her injury. The doctors became apathetic and eventually released her stating a muscular injury. At that point we consulted with Joe and followed his directions. We later learned she had 2 injured cervical disks and required surgery. Joe walked us through the process and explained the challenges we had to face. We especially appreciated his in depth knowledge and care he gave us through the entire case. Joe's experience let us know what we needed to expect, and how our case would materialize. Needless to say close to trial date the insurance company made a fair and just settlement. We can never thank Joe enough for doing what he did for Tammy. His care and interest in our situation was invaluable. Thanks again!!
