Design & Manufacturing Defects

Products liability laws are in place to protect consumers from defective and dangerous products of all types, ranging from contaminated food items to prescription drugs that pose unacceptable health risks, and from toys to automobiles and industrial equipment. Proving that a design or manufacturing defect caused serious injury or a wrongful death is a critical aspect of many civil lawsuits.

Our Belleville, Illinois, law firm has represented numerous victims of dangerous products, targeting fair and just compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and other damages. We are driven by a strong commitment to helping our clients recover to the greatest possible extent, and also by the conviction that manufacturers should be held accountable for the safety of products they market and sell for profit.

Extensive, Dependable Knowledge of the Laws Covering Dangerous Products

When proving that a product was “unreasonably dangerous” due to a manufacturing or design defect is a complex challenge, under Illinois law it is not necessary to prove product testing was inadequate or that the manufacturer was otherwise negligent. Essentially, the focus is on substantiating the flaw itself and establishing that the defect caused injury or a wrongful death. Labeling defects and failures to warn consumers about product dangers can also justify legal action.
