It is the legal responsibility of a manufacturer and the seller of a product to ensure that a product is not defective or dangerous to users in any way. Companies have to provide proper warning if any part of a product is unsafe or if using it in a certain way can prove hazardous to a person’s health or physical safety. If you were injured because a product that you were using or were exposed to was defective or the manufacturer failed to let you know that there was a danger involved in using the product, you could have grounds to file a products lawsuit against any negligent parties.

Grounds for Products Liability Cases in Illinois In Illinois, an injured person or the family of a person that died because of a defective product can file a products liability claim if he or she can prove that the product was already dangerous when it left the manufacturer’s control-even if the manufacturer followed the correct steps to ensure the product was safe for use-and there was no warning to indicate the risk of unreasonable danger.
