Product Liability Cases in Chicago
Chicago Product Liability Lawyer
Those who design, manufacture and sell products have a duty to the consumers to provide a safe product. A product that requires special or careful handling should have adequate labeling with warnings of the possible dangers to the users. Some companies manufacture products that cause injuries and place them into the hands of unsuspecting consumers. Consumer advocate groups may force the government agencies to take action and remove the products through recalls.
More responsible product manufactures initiate their own recalls when one of their products causes an injury. Accident victims injured by defective or dangerous products may have grounds for legal action against the responsible parties. Individuals injured in a product liability accident should contact a Chicago personal injury attorney regarding legal advice and guidance about the actions to take following an accident to receive injury compensation. Steven J. Morton & Associates, Ltd. is experienced in all aspects of personal injuries and represents many clients with product liability cases.
