Product Liability Accidents And Investigations

After an injury, it is important to get an experienced attorney involved in your claim as soon as possible. Our product liability lawyers are experienced in the investigation of injuries and accidents, and they can effectively protect your rights to compensation and recovery. We will leave no stone unturned in identifying defendants and collecting evidence for your case, including witness statements, medical documentation and police reports, and physical evidence.

Our firm represented clients who suffered terrible, life-altering burns when the car they were riding in burst into flames after a collision. Using the latest video technology and accident reconstruction techniques, we were able to prove that the victims would have suffered only minor injuries had the car been designed and manufactured to legal safety specifications. We were able to win a substantial jury verdict against an auto manufacturing industry that has massive legal representation at its disposal. Read about the details at our Representative Cases page.

An injury caused by a product may leave the manufacturer, distributor or proprietor liable. Our attorneys will identify every potential defendant and work with necessary experts to pursue your claim. We are experienced in product liability claims involving:

  • Defective design
  • Improper labeling
  • Serious personal injury
  • Injuries to children, defective toys and children's products
  • Burns and scarring
  • Product recall
  • Household products: cleaners, consumer power tools
  • Home appliances, furnaces and water heaters
  • Automobiles and parts: vehicle subassemblies

Defective And Dangerous Work Equipment

Many workplace accidents are caused by dangerous and defective industrial tools and equipment. If you were injured on the job in Kansas or Missouri, you may be able to obtain more financial compensation than just workers' compensation benefits. Under the law, injured workers receiving workers' comp benefits may also seek additional damages in a third-party lawsuit against the manufacturer, supplier or installer of the defective or dangerous equipment.

  • Pressure washer injuries
  • Steam cooker accidents
  • Sheer machine injuries
  • Punch press accidents
  • Conveyor line accidents
  • Furnace and boiler injuries
  • Construction accidents, defective scaffolds and ladders
  • Power tool injuries

Ankerholz and Smith is your full-service law firm for workplace injury claims. We can help you obtain the workers' compensation benefits you are entitled to, plus investigate your case to determine whether your accident entitles you to pursue additional money damages from other negligent parties, other than your employer.
