Peoria Product Liability Lawyer
Accountability for Manufacturers Who Produce Unsafe Products
Certain laws protect consumers from defective and unsafe products. These product liability laws enable you to file a claim if a manufacturer was negligent in the production of a product. Joel E. Brown, Attorney at Law, offers experienced legal guidance for these claims.
Seeking Justice for Serious Injuries
When a manufacturer fails to produce a safe product, consumers can be seriously injured. Product liability claims seek to recover damages for medical bills, lost wages during recovery, pain and suffering, and, in extreme cases, cover funeral expenses for a lost loved one.
Unfortunately, product liability claims too often dip into the realm of wrongful death claims. Products that are deadly should be pulled from production. If you have been harmed by a defective product or your loved one was killed as a result of manufacturing, design, or marketing defect, you may be able to file a product liability claim. Our experienced attorney is ready to go to great lengths to see that justice is served to the responsible parties.
A manufacturer, designer, or marketer can be held responsible for products that cause harm if:
- An error was made during production, causing the product to be faulty
- The basic design of a product is inherently dangerous
- Warnings as to the dangers of using a product were missing from the packaging
Illinois Product Liability Statute of Limitations
The Illinois statute of limitations for product liability claims ranges from two years for personal injury to five years for property damage; however, certain exceptions may apply. The limitations depend upon the type of damage that occurred—for example, whether it is a personal injury or property damage claim. Going up against a major manufacturer or another entity requires a thorough understanding of your options under product liability law.
