Product liability law encompasses a wide variety of situations. If you feel you or a loved one has been harmed or killed by a product, our Chicago product liability lawyers can evaluate your situation and determine if you have a product liability case.
Our Chicago product liability attorneys have extensive experience with defective product situations. There are several ways a product can be defective. In some cases, the product may have been designed incorrectly. In other cases, the design of the product may have been correct, but the product defect occurred during the manufacturing phase. Another possibility is that the product was designed and manufactured correctly but marketed in a way that caused the injury, such as with insufficient warnings or instruction. Any of these defects may raise the legal issue of product liability.
Breach of warranty and misrepresentation in advertising can also give rise to the right to file a product liability lawsuit if use of the product resulted in harm to the user. Even if the product was designed, manufactured, and marketed according to the law, you may still receive compensation under the rules of strict liability if the product nevertheless harmed you.
Depending on the product involved and the type of injury inflicted, product liability law, as well as state and federal statutes and regulations, may be relevant to your situation. If your loved one was killed because of a defective product, you may have a wrongful death cause of action in addition to your product liability case.
