Labeling Defects & Failure To Warn

Under Illinois product liability laws, a product can be found unreasonably dangerous whether or not it has a fundamental design or manufacturing defect. The other major category of product deficiency that can justify a lawsuit is the failure to provide adequate labels, instructions or other materials that warn users of risks and dangers.

If you or a family member has been seriously injured by a dangerous product, or if you believe any dangerous product caused the wrongful death of a loved one, you should discuss your legal recourse and options with a knowledgeable products liability attorney. A Belleville labeling defects injury attorney at our firm stands ready to:

  • Assess whether a manufacturing or design defect may have caused the injuries or fatality
  • Determine if warning labels or cautions in instructions should have been provided to inform product users of a risk such as fire, explosion, poisoning or a host of other serious dangers
  • Consider all aspects of your potential legal case and offer sound legal guidance based on deep experience across a range of personal injury negotiations and trials

Failures to Warn of Product Risks Can Justify a Civil Claim and Lawsuit

A failure to warn may justify a viable claim against the manufacturer of any product ranging from household tools and appliances to automotive components such as air bags, and from children’s toys to medical devices and on-the-job industrial machinery or equipment. As a victim or surviving family member, you may be able to recover financial compensation to cover medical bills, replace lost wages and cope with other consequences of the accident.
