When you purchase something, you have certain expectations. If a company manufactures and then sells a product, they have a serious responsibility to their buyers. They must manufacture a safe product that can be used. If the product is faulty and you get hurt, this is known as product liability. In this instance, you need an Illinois product liability lawyer. The goal is to show that you used the product as it was meant to be used, and that it was faulty. The faulty product is the reason why you were injured.
Many people who are injured by a faulty product wonder about blame under product liability laws. If the product was used properly and there was no warning about a potential injury, the faulty product may likely be at fault.
There are many different products that are covered under product liability law: Toys, vehicles, electronics, furniture, lawn mowers, and even appliances. Product liability laws are meant to protect the public from injuries caused by dangerous products put on the market without warning.
If a product is used in a way in which it wasn’t intended to be used, you may not have a case. If you construct a treehouse using bolts and wood that are made to withstand 300 pounds, but you place things inside of the treehouse that weigh 1,000 pounds, then the bolts and wood weren’t used for their original purpose. This reduces the bolt manufacturer’s liability.
Product liability is about a defective product that hurt other people. There are five main product liability categories:
Like any legal cause of action, product liability has elements that must be met in order for you to file a claim in a court of law. In fact, if you’re injured because of a defective product, you only have two years to file your claim in Illinois. So, if you believe your claim has the following four elements, call Malman Law right away!
