Defective Product Lawyers in Illinois

Experiencing a product-related injury can be both physically and emotionally devastating. Products you have purchased or that you use in your home or during your daily life are expected to function properly and protect your safety. Dealing with the injuries caused by defective products can be difficult, and problems may be compounded by the additional financial strain of medical expenses and lost wages. Fortunately, product liability laws provide protection for consumers injured by defective products, and injury victims may be able to pursue compensation from product manufacturers, distributors, retailers, or installers.

If you have been injured by a product defect, the experienced personal injury attorneys of Dickler, Kahn, Slowikowski & Zavell, Ltd. can help assess the circumstances surrounding your injury and help you determine your best options for pursuing compensation. With an understanding of product liability law, our lawyers can evaluate product defects, identify the responsible parties, and pursue compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other types of damages. When it comes to obtaining financial justice in cases involving product defects, you can count on our experienced product liability attorneys to fight hard on your behalf.

Pursuing Compensation for Injuries Caused by Defective Products

Our skilled and experienced attorneys can assist with product liability cases involving multiple types of products, including:

  • Medical devices - The products used to treat medical conditions are meant to protect the health and safety of patients. When these products break down or fail to function correctly, they can not only result in a lack of treatment, but they can cause a great deal of harm to the body. Some medical devices that may cause injuries include joint and hip implants, blood clot filters, insulin pumps, hernia mesh, pacemakers, artificial heart valves, intrauterine devices (IUDs), surgical warming blankets, robotic surgery systems, breast implants, and continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices.
  • Drugs and pharmaceuticals - While drugs must go through an approval process before being made available to the public, a medication can still be defective if it presents a risk to patients or does not function as promised by the manufacturer. In some cases, dangerous side effects or interactions with other drugs may not be discovered until a drug becomes widely available. Pharmaceuticals may also cause injury due to product labeling defects or the failure of product manufacturers to adequately warn doctors and patients about the potential risks associated with a drug.
  • Auto parts - Automobile product liability claims may involve a variety of potentially defective parts, such as tires, brakes, airbags, seatbelts, and fuel tanks. A product defect in any automotive part could lead to serious injuries or death in the event of a motor vehicle accident.
  • Household appliances - Products used in people's homes are expected to be safe. However, defects in appliances or other household products can lead to electrocutions, cuts, burns, or other injuries. Defective household appliances may include stoves, washing machines, refrigerators, ranges, dishwashers, microwaves, electrical outlets and covers, blenders, coffee makers, pressure cookers, and multiple other types of products.
  • Children's products - Child-related product liability claims may involve clothing, car seats, strollers, cribs, high chairs, changing tables, toys, and other items used by children or parents. Product manufacturers may fail to take into account the safety of infants and young children, who are particularly vulnerable to issues such as choking or strangulation.

Product defects can take multiple forms. Design defects may occur because of flaws in the way a product was conceived or created, such as failure to take into account the ways a product would be used. Manufacturing defects may occur if errors are made while products were being put into production, such as the use of the wrong materials. Manufacturers or other parties may also be liable for the failure to provide a product's users with warnings about potential risks or instructions for how to use the product safely.
