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. It is very important that you contact a skilled and proven Chicago Personal Injury Attorney to discuss your injuries as a result of a consumer product.
