What Is Product Liability?
In Illinois, if you have suffered an injury because of a defective product, you may have a right to receive compensation. A product is considered defective if it has issues with design, manufacturing or marketing (labeling).
Design defects: Includes a problem with the design of the product that makes a product inherently or unreasonably dangerous.
Manufacturing defects: Includes a problem not with the design itself, but the process of manufacturing the product resulting in the product being inherently or unreasonably dangerous.
Marketing (labeling) defects: Includes products that fail to warn users of the dangers associated with the product or fail to include proper instructions to ensure safe consumption or usage.
What Is Needed To Show Liability
In order to recover under product liability legal theories, you need to show the following:
- You bought the product
- You used the product in a way a reasonable person would
- The product remains in the condition it was in when it was sold
- You suffered an injury from the product
If you have been injured by a product due to a defect in design, manufacturing or labeling, it is extremely important for you to keep documentation regarding the product and your injuries. Be sure to visit a hospital right away, take photos of your injuries and keep good records of how the injury has affected your life.
