Chicago Products Liability Lawyer
What Is Products Liability?
Products liability is an area of law concerning injuries that are caused by consumer products. In Illinois, a person can sue the manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer of a product that they bought if they are injured while using the product. It is key that the person was using the product in a way that it was meant to be used, and the product was either defective or otherwise unsafe.
Any sort of product that is sold to consumers can be the subject of a products liability lawsuit. The product in question could be a car, a toy, a garden hose, a kitchen appliance, food, a prescription drug, or any other item that someone commonly buys.
The Injuries are Real
In spite of this being a common type of lawsuit about commonly available items, it is no laughing matter when someone gets hurt. There is no question that people are regularly hurt or even killed by using defective products.
The manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers of consumer products have a responsibility to make sure that the products that they sell are safe for people to use. If a person is injured or killed by using an unsafe product, the one who made that product available to him or her should be held responsible.
