Strict & Product Liability
Our attorneys in Chicago represent many clients that have suffered serious injuries from a variety of defective products such as automotive parts, faulty appliances, hazardous toys, unsafe drugs and contaminated foods.
Consumers should be able to expect that products they have purchased are safe when used as directed by the manufacturers.
Product liability laws hold product manufacturers to different standards of care than the average party. Companies are responsible for the safety and well-being of millions of consumers and must take special care to ensure that their products are safe to use.
According to Illinois law plaintiffs who file strict liability claims do not have to provide evidence that a manufacturer, distributor, or seller should have been more careful or that it made errors in its design, they are required to establish that:
A product had a design, manufacturing, or warning label defect that made it unreasonably dangerous to users;
The defect existed at the time that the product in question left the defendant’s control;
The product was used in a way that was foreseeable to the defendant; and
The product’s defect caused them to suffer an injury.
