The Facts About Product Liability Cases

Every year, thousands of American consumers are seriously injured or killed by consumer products that have a defect due to a manufacturer's negligence. From gas barbecues, household items, motor vehicles, and child safety seats to medical devices and dangerous drugs, products with serious design flaws, substandard workmanship, and improper labeling continue to enter the marketplace due to negligence.

When a consumer is injured using a product or drug as it is intended, the manufacturer or others along the manufacturing and retail chain may be legally liable. These injuries can occur anywhere, including while driving, at school, at the office, or while shopping in a retail store.

A Successful Defective Product Trial Settlement

Our Chicago product liability lawyers successfully settled a case during trial in Charleston County, IL, for a client who was paralyzed after being injured by a dangerous product.

The client worked at a paper processing company. He ended up paralyzed when a coworker tipped an extremely heavy pallet onto him.

Our product liability attorney brought the suit under a product liability theory against the manufacturer and designer of the pallet.

The financial compensation can not be disclosed due to a confidentiality agreement.

The Facts About Dangerous Drugs

Dangerous prescription and over-the-counter medications are, unfortunately, among the most common defective products that reach the market. In many cases, these drugs are FDA-approved medications that have been pushed through the approval process without adequate testing for long-term side effects, causing immense, sometimes irreparable damage to patients.

In other cases, natural herbs and medications sold in health food stores have bypassed the FDA-approval process altogether and undergone no safety testing. Our product liability lawyers understand the devastation that these defective medical products can bring. They have many years of experience in pharmaceutical law, including experience with litigation tied to Vioxx ®, Celebrex®, Bextra®, Baycol®, and drugs containing valsartan, a recalled high blood pressure medication.

If a prescribed or herbal drug caused you to become injured or sick, contact our Chicago law firm today for a free consultation about product liability.

A Successful Dangerous Drug Settlement


Our attorneys settled a case in Cook County, IL, against an international drug manufacturer of a cholesterol medication. The drug was prescribed to our client, an elderly man, after he underwent heart surgery. Unfortunately, the medication caused his kidneys to fail, so he will need dialysis for the rest of his life. The client's financial compensation can not be disclosed due to a confidentiality agreement.

I've Been Injured by a Product With a Defect How Long Do I Have to Contact Your Product Liability Lawyers?

The personal injury statute of limitations in Illinois is two years from the date you were injured.

Yes, You Have Two Years But Time is Of the Essence

It is important to contact our Chicago law firm about your potential product liability case as quickly as possible. This will ensure that facts are fresh in your mind, as well as the minds of any witnesses, and allow us to start our investigations immediately. Chances are good that the defense is already building a case to exonerate them of any wrongdoing should you file a claim.

Product liability can be attributed to the item's manufacturer, designer, distributor, and retailer. The sooner our attorneys can look into whether a breach of warranty occurred because of product defects, any dangerous short cuts were taken during the manufacturing process in order to save money, or that product instructions were incorrectly written, the sooner we can start building a case and aim for a positive financial outcome for you or a loved one.
