Different Kinds of Product Liability
Defective product cases cover a wide range of situations. In addition to defective consumer products, such as kitchen appliances and children’s toys, product liability also applies to products used in manufacturing and other commercial environments. For example, if you work in a factory, and a machine part fails, you may have grounds for a defective product case against the manufacturer of that machine part. Another situation in which you might seek compensation through a defective product suit is when a medical device fails.
With the help of a Chicago product liability attorney, you can seek compensation for:
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Rehabilitation costs
Cases dealing with defective products can be complicated, but an experienced defective product lawyer can help. In addition to helping you determine who is responsible for your injury, a lawyer can represent your best interests in court.
What Would a Plaintiff Need to Prove to Bring a Product Liability Claim?
Product liability claims are slightly different from general personal injury claims in that you must be able to prove different things in order to have a case. In order to win a product liability claim, you will need to prove the following:
- That the product was defective (there was a manufacturing error, a design defect, or a failure to warn about certain hazards when using the product)
- You were using the product as it was intended to be used
- You suffered an injury or loss
- Your injury or loss were a result of using the defective product
Our team's goal is to help you prove each of the above points and secure the compensation that you deserve for your injuries. At the same time, you can help hold a company responsible for producing a dangerous product and help prevent others from experiencing the same injuries in the future.
