Products Liability & Defective Products Lawyers in Southern Illinois

Manufacturers and sellers are liable for injuries caused by their products if those products are unreasonably dangerous or defective.
A defect can occur in the product’s:
- Lack of warnings or safety features
For example, a ladder that is unsafe to use at certain angles must contain warnings or instructions as to its use. If it does not contain such information and a person is injured by using it in a foreseeable way, the manufacturer and seller will be liable without proof of any specific negligent action. Likewise, if the ladder was made of material that was not strong enough to hold an average size person, the manufacturer and seller would be liable for injuries caused by its collapse.
Those who put products into the stream of commerce impliedly warrant that those products are reasonably safe when put to a foreseeable use.
