Chicago Product Liability Lawyer

Year after year, thousands of consumers suffer preventable injuries due to defective products. A product goes through many stages throughout its development and creation, so a mistake can be made at any point. Weak design, poor manufacturing, shoddy maintenance, and inadequate testing can lead to a product’s failure. Insufficient information on how to use the product can also cause problems. If there isn’t enough warning in the manual about potential dangers, the results can be catastrophic.

We expect the products we purchase to work properly, but sadly, that isn’t always the case. Airbags can fail to deploy, chairs and tables can collapse, electrical equipment can burn or explode, and toys can fall apart and become a choking hazard.

Accident victims go through painful ordeals, from physical and mental pain to the financial burden of medical bills. If you become injured by a defective product, see a doctor immediately, and then contact us to speak with an attorney who is experienced in product liability law. We can help you take the next step. Be sure to gather the receipt for your purchase, the model number, manual, and packaging – any information you can find about the product.

Chicago Defective Product Lawyer

It is a known fact that companies profit from the fast manufacturing of products. The quicker a product is out on the market, the sooner the company can put money in their pockets. Many times the speed at which these products are made, results in poor design, usability, and most importantly, safety oversight. As a result, these defective products can often cause harm, injury and irreparable damage to a consumer. Not all defective products share the same risk. A faulty remote control or small kitchen appliance although undoubtedly an inconvenience, does not pose the same risk or damage as a medical product, such as a wheelchair or prescription.

Despite numerous mandatory testings and elaborate planning involved in the manufacturing of products, thousands of defective products are produced each year. The cost of the defective products ends up being a lofty price to pay when these result in injury and loss.

Tragically, defective products do not always end up in money gone to waste, many times a defective product can be a direct cause of severe injury and even death.

Defective Products Can Cause Injury and Death

Defective motor vehicles

Car defects can include anything from faulty tires and seat belts to malfunctioning air bags. Defective motor vehicles pose serious life-threatening risks.

Baby Product Defects

When you bring a newborn home, you want to provide your infant with a safe haven and ensure that your baby is protected. However, many times baby products, such as cribs, strollers and toys often lack appropriate warning labels and safety precautions.

Defective Supplements and Medicine Products

Hundreds of defective medicine products are often launched into the consumer market without sufficient research of supporting safety evidence. A defective medication or supplement may be lethal.

Types of Product Defects

Design Defects

A product design defect is inherent. These often occur long before the product has been created or manufactured. Defective products lacking a strong and functional design can pose a significant threat. The product itself may serve its intended function or purpose, but the design of the product could render the use of the product hazardous. Products that are negligently designed, such as machinery and tools are a great threat.

Defects in Manufacturing

Manufacturing defects in a product refer to the errors made while the product is under construction. Defects in manufacturing are unplanned and happen to a segment or specific part of a product, as opposed to the entire piece of merchandise as in a product design defect.
