The holidays are a popular time for exchanging gifts with family members, co-workers, and friends. Sometimes, however, an otherwise exciting gift turns out to be defective.

Even when a product is being used by a consumer in the intended manner, the product could still malfunction and cause the consumer serious injuries. Injuries that a person may suffer when a defective product malfunctions depend upon the actual merchandise involved and can include:
There are also many different ways that a product might be defective, including all of the following:
The State of Illinois has a statute of limitations in place when it comes to defective products that cause injuries. Specifically, a person can file a claim for products liability within two years of the date on which the injured individual acquired the defective product.
The main purpose of statutes of limitation like this one is to prevent evidence from growing stale. If a claim or lawsuit is not filed within the statutory period, then the person who was injured by the defective product will not be allowed to bring a claim or file a lawsuit at any point in the future. An experienced Chicago personal injury lawyer can make sure that any lawsuit you bring is filed in a timely manner and that the proper responsible party or parties are named in the lawsuit.
