Chicago Product Liability Attorneys
Fighting for the legal rights of people injured by defective consumer products
People have a right to assume that the products that they purchase are safe to use as intended and are free from defects that make them dangerous. Unfortunately, millions of people each year are injured in accidents involving consumer products. Product liability law is the area of law that operates to compensate people who are injured by defective products. There are generally three types of defects that cause actionable injuries:
- Design defects
- Manufacturing defects
- Marketing defects, also known as cases of “failure to warn”
It can often require a significant amount of investigation to determine whether an injury caused by a consumer product was the result of some type of product defect. As a result, it is important for victims to retain a Chicago product liability attorney who is familiar with litigating product liability cases.

A number of consumer products have the potential to cause injury
No matter what type of product they sell, manufacturers have the legal duty to ensure the product is reasonably safe for its intended use. Unfortunately, mistakes can occur and products can hit the shelves with different kinds of defects that lead to malfunctions and injuries. Furthermore, if a product is inherently dangerous or has the known potential to cause injury, the law requires the manufacturer to provide adequate warning of the risks of using the product. Almost any type of consumer product has the potential to cause some type of injury. The following are some of the products that cause the most injuries to consumers in United States and lead to product liability claims:
The nature of your product liability case will depend on many factors including the type of product that injured you, whether the product had been recalled, whether others have suffered similar injuries, among others. Some cases, such as those involving motor vehicle defects or dangerous pharmaceuticals, may require you to join an already pending class-action lawsuit against the manufacturer. You always want an attorney on your side who has a thorough understanding of product liability law and can handle any issues that may arise no matter what type of product caused the injury.
