Who Can I Pursue for Defective Product Injuries in Illinois?
At Mancini Law Group P.C., our dangerous products attorneys in Chicago know that anytime the details of a product’s design, manufacturing, assembly or labeling are compromised by negligence, people are going to get hurt when they purchase and use those products.
Customers have a right to expect that the products they buy will be safe when used as designed.
Unfortunately, implicitly dangerous products are finding their way into our Illinois homes and businesses in increasing numbers, and when our clients are injured while using them, they deserve to pursue justice from the negligent party.
Our Cook County product liability attorneys will help you determine who is liable for your injuries, so we can pursue maximum justice – maximum results.
Who Can Be Held Liable for Dangerous Product Injuries in Illinois?
At Mancini Law Group P.C., our Chicago personal injury lawyers want each of our clients to understand that their need for justice is our passion for justice, and we will not stop investigating their case until the negligent party is identified and held accountable for their role in introducing a dangerous product to the public.
One of three parties, or a combination of each party, may be held liable for product defects, including:
- The Designer
Design defects require proof that the product was unreasonably dangerous because of a flaw in its design.
During a product liability claim, our Chicago personal injury attorneys do not have to prove the manufacturer was aware of the design defect. Just that they should have known it existed.
- The Manufacturing
The manufacturer must create defective-free, safe products.
When they are aware — or should have been aware — the product’s construction would harm a consumer, they may be held liable for the damages that occurred.
- The Instructions, Warnings, or Information
Failing to provide proper warning labels, instructions, information, or adequate directions to the product’s distribution phase will leave consumers without the tools they need to safely use the product as it was designed, which can cause serious injuries without notice.
Everything from car parts and children’s toys to furniture and household products can be dangerous when they were designed, manufactured, or labeled improperly.
If you have been hurt while using a product in the way it was designed to be used, contact our skilled defective products attorneys in Chicago today to discuss your case during a free consultation.
How Can We Prove a Defective or Dangerous Product Caused My Injuries?
Our Illinois dangerous products laws require our experienced Chicago personal injury attorneys to meet certain criteria before filing a case against the responsible party.
We must show:
- The manufacturer or seller had a duty to avoid harming our client
- The liable party breached their duty to our client
- The liable party’s breach caused a foreseeable tangible loss, including physical injury or property damage
