Chicago Product Liability Attorneys
Unfortunately, many manufacturers are concerned with only one thing – profits. And sometimes, that motivation can even come before the safety of consumers. At the Law Offices of Steven J. Malman & Associates, P.C. in Chicago, Illinois our personal injury lawyers feel a responsibility to defend the general public from faulty or dangerous products. For years, when it comes to disregard for consumer safety, product developers have gone unrestrained. Many of them place their products on the market before the safety evaluation has been completed. This results in goods that are manufactured at much lower standards now than they were just two years ago.

Product Liability Claims
Generally, all consumer products – food, toys, electronics, real estate, drugs, furniture, clothing, motor vehicles, medical devices, maps, instruction manuals, home and office appliances, and commercial airplanes all fall under product liability law. Research from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission shows that more than 29 million people are hurt because of a substandard or dangerous product each year. Over 21,000 of these injuries result in death. Product liability law deals with unsafe or malfunctioning products, as well as the manufacturers, stores, and wholesalers that are responsible for bringing these dangerous goods into the marketplace.
While products liability claims can result from a breach of warranty or carelessness, many claims are founded on strict liability. This means that the responsible party does not need to have acted neglectfully, carelessly, or be found “at fault” in order for a products liability claim to be filed. There are three conditions for this:
- The product was found defective or unsafe
- The defect was the direct cause of the accident and/or injury
- The injured person was using the product correctly
There may be several parties that can be held accountable for your products liability injury. This is why it is so important that you contact a personal injury law firm that understands products liability law and the kinds of claims involved. At the Law Offices of Steven J.
