Chicago Product Liability Attorney
Harmed by a dangerous or defective product? Seek restitution!
Every year, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 22,000 Americans are killed and 29 million are injured by defective and unsafe products. These product-related injuries cost well over $500 billion annually. Product manufacturers have a duty to issue reasonably safe products that are labeled appropriately and produce no threat to safety if used properly, yet the CPSC reports between 200 and 300 yearly product recalls.
If you or someone you love was injured by a product that was dangerous, defective, labeled inappropriately, or marketed inappropriately, you could be entitled to financial compensation. The best way to find out if you are entitled to a claim is by speaking with a Chicago product liability lawyer.

Grounds for Filing a Defective Product Lawsuit
There are a variety of grounds for filing defective product claims against manufacturers, such as:
This type of defect concerns the design of the product itself, meaning the product would have been faulty even if it was manufactured impeccably.
A defect in the manufacturing means that a safety hazard occurred due to a mistake during the manufacturing process.
Failure to Warn
This means that the manufacturing company failed to give adequate warning regarding the product’s potential safety hazards.
This type of defect concerns how the product was marketed or advertised. For example, improperly marketing a toy with small parts, a choking hazard, to children three and under.
