When a defect in a product, a defect in design, product labeling or the way a product was used cause serious injury or death, the manufacturer or the supplier may be held liable. Claims arising from alleged harm from defective products are referred to as products liability lawsuits. Cases involving product liability extend to products of every sort, from medical devices, household appliances, toys, tools, construction equipment, defective tires, cars, recreational vehicles or harmful side effects from a drug that was not properly tested.
If you or a family member are injured by a defective product, you may be able to file a product liability claim to recover medical expenses, future medical costs, past and future lost earnings, impairment and disability, and loss of earning capacity.
Because Illinois law limits the time you have to file a product liability action, it is essential consult an attorney as soon as possible after injury or death occurs.
