We Seek Justice For Victims of Dangerously Defective Products

Peoria IL Product Liability LawyerMost products in the United States are regulated, and manufacturers are expected to follow a series of protocols to ensure their products are free from defects. However, when manufacturers fail to produce safe products, it can often cause irreparable damage to consumers, both physically and financially. As a victim of a defective product, you will and should want to recover compensation for damages like medical bills, emotional trauma, lost wages, and other consequences on which placing a dollar amount can be challenging.

Often, product liability claims may slightly dip into the realm of wrongful death claims. Many times deadly products need to be immediately pulled from production. Thus if you were harmed by a dangerously defective product or a person you love was, you would need legal representation. As professionals, we will investigate what aspect of the product (design, marketing, manufacturing) was defective and then file a claim accordingly.

Our IL product liability lawyers work as a team enabling them to go to any legal lengths to hold all the responsible parties both responsible and liable for the damage you suffered.

A marketer, manufacturer, and designer of a product can be held responsible for products that harm users if:

  • There was an error during the production of the product, which caused the fault to be present in it.
  • The design was inherently dangerous.
  • Any warnings associated with using the product were missing from the packaging.
  • All of these are points that a product liability attorney will raise when filing a lawsuit against the company in question. 

What is Personal Injury?

Personal injury refers to any physical or mental harm or injury caused to an individual’s body, mind, or emotions. Personal injuries can often be caused by accidents such as car accidents, slips, and falls, workplace accidents, medical malpractice, defective consumer products used, or intentional acts of violence.

Typical personal injuries may include broken bones, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns, cuts and bruises, emotional distress, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Personal injury cases often involve seeking compensation for pain, suffering, and medical bills, along with any valid damages sustained. However, pursuing a personal injury claim requires the injured party to establish that another party was responsible for causing the injury, either through negligence or intentional wrongdoing. In product liability claims, this is the job of a seasoned product liability lawyer. 

What is Product Liability Law?

Product liability law mainly holds manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and other parties involved in the chain of distribution of a product responsible for harm caused by a product.

Under product liability law, if a product is defective and causes harm to a consumer, the injured party can file a lawsuit to recover damages for their injuries. Usually, harm may be caused by defective products. Defects stem from inherent design flaws, manufacturing defects, or inadequate warnings or instructions for use.

Proving a product liability claim requires the injured party to establish that the product was defective and how the defect caused the injury. It also has to be investigated if the defect was present when the product was manufactured or sold.

Product liability cases can involve various products, including vehicles, appliances, medical devices, and drugs. Product liability law is meant to encourage manufacturers to produce safe products and ensure that consumers are fully aware of any dangers associated with using that product. Furthermore, product liability lawyers agree the law gives consumers a legal channel by which those harmed by a defective product can seek compensation from all parties involved.

The Illinois Statute of Limitations for Product Liability Cases

The current statute of limitations for Illinois for product liability cases or claims is between two and five years for property damage. However, there are exceptions to this, and they may apply depending on the case. The limitations may be based on the type of damage to the property.

It is also worth highlighting that going up against a significant manufacturer or business requires an excellent understanding of all the legal issues and your options because it is almost certain that these businesses have their own lawyers. So, the better your team of product liability attorneys, the higher the chance you will get rightful compensation.
