Product Liability

Chicago, Illinois

chicago product liability lawyerConsumers have a right to expect that the products they purchase will work properly and safely. Unfortunately, many manufacturers place profits over consumer needs and safety, resulting in the sale of defective and at times unsafe products.

In order to safeguard these consumer rights, our government has enacted a variety of state and federal laws which hold manufacturers accountable for any damages caused by the purchase and use of their defective products. If you have been injured as a result of using a defective product, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your damages in a product liability lawsuit.

Class Action Product Liability Cases

In many instances, filing a class action lawsuit may be the most effective way for all consumers who have been harmed by a defective product to receive the compensation they deserve. By joining all of the victims injured by a defective product together and filing one class action lawsuit, it can streamline the process and enable a larger number of victims to receive compensation than if each plaintiff filed a lawsuit individually.

Often, a class action product liability claim might help make the strongest possible case against the negligent manufacturer, increasing the likelihood of a successful outcome.
