Products Liability Lawyers Chicago

What is Products Liability?

The term product liability, also referred to as products liability, refers to holding all parties responsible in the manufacturing chain of any product that ultimately causes damage. From the manufacturer that produces the individual parts to the manufacturer that assembles the parts to the wholesaler and retailers, product liability encompasses many different parties. If inherently defect products cause harm to a consumer, the product would be the subject of a product liability lawsuit. Our Chicago product liability lawyers are equipped to help you navigate this potentially complicated area of law.

Types of Product Liability Claims

There are a variety of product liability claims that can be made, including:

  • Design Defects: Design defects occur during the initial stages of the manufacturing process, making them an inherent part of the overall product. These defects revolve around errors that were made in the initial design portion of the process, resulting in potential danger for those who receive the product. Liability surrounding design defects revolves around a foreseeable risk that occurred during the manufacturing stage.
  • Manufacturing Defects: Another type of defect occurs during the manufacturing process. Manufacturing defects typically only impact a handful of items versus design defects that impact every product that was produced. The manufacturer did not intend for these defects to occur and they happen regardless of the effort that the manufacturer puts forth to oversee the process.
  • Warning/Labeling Defects: Warning defects occur when the manufacturer of a product doesn’t include the proper warnings on the label of the product. This includes warning labels, descriptions, insufficient labeling, etc. Consumers may become seriously injured as the result of a warning or labeling defect.
