Chicago Product Liability Lawyers
When you buy a product, you have a right to expect that the product is safe to use. Unfortunately, unsafe products are everywhere. In 2005, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) studied defective products. The study found record-setting trends in the number of unsafe products. In 2005, manufacturers voluntarily recalled 397 different products due to safety hazards. This figure does not even include products that were recalled involuntarily or dangerous products that are still on the market.
When a product injures a user, the injured person may be able to sue the manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer that sold the product. While a lawsuit cannot change the fact that you have been injured, a lawsuit can provide for compensation. Under several different circumstances, the law allows you to recover for personal injury, pain and suffering and even lost wages that are the direct result of unsafe products.
