Illinois Product Liability Attorneys

Product Liability Lawyers

Product Liability is an area of personal injury law that focuses on dangerous and defective products. Our lawyers at represent seriously injured victims of hazardous products against the corporations and manufacturers who have produced, manufactured, or sold these dangerous products. We stand up against their corporate attorneys and insurance lawyers to obtain maximum compensation for our clients.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or illness that may be related to a dangerous or defective product, you need lawyers who are experienced in litigating product liability cases. Adler & Adler, P.C. has proven success at helping victims obtain significant compensation for injuries or illnesses caused by a wide range of hazardous products, whether through skilled settlement negotiations or through expert jury trials.

Our attorneys are experienced representing clients in a wide range of product liability claims, from medical and automotive to industrial equipment and consumer merchandise. Both Mark Adler and Valerie Harris Adler possess the expertise required to successfully litigate individual, class action, and multi-district product liability claims. Their experience and knowledge are critical when determining if a product defect may be an underlying cause of an accident or injury.

Many product liability claims include, but are not limited to, one or more of the following issues:
• Products that have malfunctioned.
• Products that have caused injuries because of poor instructions or lack of warnings.
• Items that are so dangerous that no matter how well designed and labeled, they will eventually cause an injury.
•Injuries or illnesses sustained from dangerous industrial products or hazardous, poorly labeled consumer merchandise.
• Recalled food products.

What to Do If You Are Injured by a Dangerous or Defective Product

If you suffer an injury that may be due to a dangerous product, you must keep the product in question in order to have a liability case.

1. If you or a loved one is injured by a malfunctioning or dangerous product, seek medical attention immediately and, again, keep the product as proof that it caused the injury.

2. DO NOT THROW AWAY OR SEND BACK the product, even if it has been recalled. Companies request recalled toys or other products to be thrown out or sent back. But you only have a product liability case if you have proof of having the product.

3. Keep the toy or other product safely out of reach children.

4. For products that have been recalled due to risk of lead poisoning, have your child tested for blood lead levels. This quick, simple blood test is often available for under $10 at many village, town, or county health departments. Call your local city health department for more information.

5. When you have become sick from a meal at a restaurant or from a recalled food product, you must be tested for e coli and other viruses and bacteria within hours to days of becoming ill, depending on the virus, to prove that you suffered from food poisoning.
