Faulty medical devices and products liability claims

When people in the Greater Chicago area think about products liability claims and defective products, they probably think about airbags and baby cribs, items that have, in previous years, been defective, led to deaths and injuries and have been subject to recall.

What should you know about products liability law?

Many of our readers in the Chicago area probably know that each year, defective products injure thousands of Americans. However, some people do not know that lawsuits that are based on these types of injuries draw upon an area of law known as "products liability". So, what do our readers need to know about products liability law if they are injured by a defective product?

Know your options after an injury caused by a defective product

Most of our readers in the Chicago area know that car accidents and medical malpractice are the cause of thousands of injuries and even fatalities throughout America each year. It seems like despite all of the public and private efforts to curb these types of incidents, they remain a serious problem. However, another type of incident is also responsible for serious injuries throughout the country - one that some people may not realize. These would be defective products.

What duties do pharmaceutical manufactures have?

When we are prescribed medications, we expect that the medicine will do what it is intended. While it is possible that it is not the best medication for the ailment suffered by a patient in Illinois or elsewhere, this likely will not harm the patient but only require a physician to prescribe a different medication. On the other hand, if there was an issue with the manufacturing of a pharmaceutical drug or it was not properly tested before entering the market, this could seriously harm a consumer of that drug.

Understanding liability in a products liability action

When we purchase new products or use the ones we currently have, we often do this with little to no thought about the reliability of these products. We presume that they will work in the way that they are intended to for a reasonable amount of time. When products no longer work, this is often because they are old and broken. No one thinks about a product being defective or dangerous, having the ability to cause serious harm or even death.
