Chicago Product Liability Attorneys

The Chicago products liability injury firm of Zneimer & Zneimer P.C. represents plaintiffs throughout Illinois, including the greater Chicago area as well as Will County, DuPage County, Kane County, Lake County, and McHenry County, Cook County and all other counties. Products liability matters represent a distinct part of personal injury law focused on injuries sustained by a consumer in conjunction with their use of a consumer product.

There are three main areas for which a product liability attorney may assert as grounds in a cause of action involving products liability. The first is where the product was defectively designed, so as to cause, or present the potential cause, for injury, upon use. The second is where the product was defectively manufactured, thereby causing injury that would not have occurred in the absence of such faulty or defective manufacture. The third is failure to warn the consumer, or to provide proper, appropriate, or sufficient instruction regarding the use and/or consumption of the consumer product. When it is not apparent, at the initial stages of a matter what the precise cause may be, experienced products liability injury attorneys will often assert all three above stated grounds of liability. Our team of experienced product liability attorneys can provide a comprehensive evaluation of your matter, and discuss the potential grounds for a cause of action.

In conjunction with the cause(s) of the consumer product related injury, a concurrent concern for product liability lawyers are the individuals, corporations, or entities that could be liable for injuries sustained. Far too often consumers jump to conclusions that injuries occurred as a result of using a product in an improper manner, when in actuality the product was being used in the exact manner proscribed in the instruction or user manual. Likewise additional premature conclusions include a consumer’s rejection of a product as simply being cheap, inappropriate, or unsuitable, without the considering that a dangerous product has been placed into the stream of commerce, or that other consumers may share the same experiences.
