At the Law Offices of Steven J. Malman & Associates, P.C. in Chicago, Illinois our personal injury lawyers feel an obligation to protect the general public from defective or unsafe products. For years, manufacturers of products have gone unchecked when it comes to their disregard for consumer safety. Many of them sell products prior to completing the safety evaluation, leading to products that are manufactured at much lower standards now than they were just two years ago.

Product Liability Claims
Product liability law involves unsafe or defective products and the manufacturers, retailers, and wholesalers that are responsible for bringing these dangerous products into the marketplace. Generally, all consumer products, including food, toys, electronics, real estate, drugs, furniture, clothing, motor vehicles, medical devices, maps, instruction manuals, home and office appliances, and commercial airplanes, fall under this area of law.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 29 million people are injured because of a defective or unsafe product each year. More than 21,000 of these injuries are fatal.
While products liability claims can arise from breach of warranty or negligence, many claims are based on strict liability. This means that the party held liable does not need to have acted negligently, carelessly, or be found “at fault” in order for there to be grounds for a products liability claim as long as (1) the product was found defective or unsafe, (2) the cause of the accident and/or injury, and (3) the person who was injured was using the product correctly.
