A consumer versus a corporation in a products liability claim

Most Illinois residents are familiar with the metaphor or characterization of the "little guy" taking on the "big guy". There is perhaps no part of the law where this characterization comes to life like it does in a products liability claim.

In a products liability case, typically a consumer that has purchased or is using a product has been injured in some way by the product in question. Perhaps the item was a defective medical device. Or a dangerous children's toy. Or maybe a defective automobile part put a whole family at risk. Whatever the cause of the injury or death, if it can be attributed to a defective product a products liability lawsuit may be an option to recover compensation.

However, product liability lawsuits can be notorious for the pushback that injured plaintiffs get from the corporations they might name as defendants. These corporations have a lot on the line when it comes to product liability lawsuits. A claim that one of the corporation's products is defective to the point that it causes injuries is a claim that most corporations will dispute vigorously.

At our law firm, we do our best to make sure that our clients are prepared for the many different twists and turns that can occur in a product liability lawsuit. These victims may be suffering, but it is important to realize that sometimes patience is the most crucial part of these types of lawsuits.

Injured consumers are often unaware of the rights afforded to them in these matters; however, they are afforded the right to hold negligent parties liable for their injuries. Additionally, they can seek compensation for losses and damages suffered.
