Addison Dangerous Products Lawyers

Lawyers for Those Injured by Defective and Dangerous Products in Bensenville, Elmhurst, and DuPage County

When a person is injured by some type of consumer product, including household items, toys, or even prescription drugs, the victim may be entitled to compensation for his or her injuries. The road to recovery, however, is often quite challenging, as product manufacturers and distributors are quick to deflect blame in an effort to avoid liability. At Kaiser Hafezi Law, our lawyers know that the average person may find it almost impossible to hold companies responsible for dangerous products, at least on their own.

Our team will work tirelessly to help you secure the compensation you need from any and all responsible parties.

Product Liability Cases in Northern Illinois

When a company produces a product for consumer use, the manufacturer is responsible for eliminating all foreseeable dangers to the end-user. Sadly, countless dangerous and defective products still make it to store shelves and into the hands of unsuspecting consumers. Each year, approximately one million Americans seek medical attention for injuries caused by dangerous products, and most such cases fall into one of three categories:

  • Defective Design: A product that is flawed from the very beginning may be considered to have a design defect. Defective design affects every product that shares the same design. Design defects are often issues in product liability cases involving cars, auto parts, and medical devices. For example, a sport-utility vehicle with a high center of gravity may be considered to have a defective design if the vehicle tends to roll over under reasonable driving conditions, such as swerving to miss debris on the road.
  • Manufacturing Defects: In some cases, a product's design is safe, but something in the manufacturing process causes the product to become dangerous. Low-quality materials, counterfeit parts, and poor quality control practices can all create manufacturing defects. An example of a manufacturing defect could be a worn-out assembly line machine that does not tighten the screws properly on a toy designed for babies. If the toy later falls apart because of the loose screws and injures a consumer's child, the company could be liable for the manufacturing defect;
  • Marketing Defects: Sometimes known as a "failure to warn," a marketing defect is a problem with how an inherently dangerous product is presented to the consumer. Some products will always be dangerous, including saws, axes, construction equipment, home appliances, and even prescription drugs. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer and distributor of such products to include adequate warnings about the dangers, as well as instructions for using the products safely.
