What Do I Do If I Was Injured by a Defective Product?

When a company chooses to place profit ahead of safety, the result is never good. It only takes one look at the ongoing Takata airbag debacle to understand just how careless such manufacturers can be. But if you have been injured by a defective product, you do have recourse. Please contact the Law Offices of Mark L. Karno & Associates today at 800-849-7182 to schedule a free consultation with one of our Chicago defective product lawyers.

Product liability is the branch of law that deals with products that cause damages to those who buy and use them. Proving liability is complex, but generally speaking, your case must establish four elements:

1.You were injured while using the product.

2.The product is defective.

3.Your injury was directly caused by the defective product.

4.You were using the product as directed when you sustained your injury.

The number one thing you can do if you've been injured by a defective product is to bring your case to an experienced defective product lawyer as soon as possible. The statute of limitations in Illinois is two years, as it is in many states, but a ten year statute of repose applies after the product has been delivered to its first owner. That means that if you sustain an injury in 2015, but the product was first released in 2006, you only have one year left to file suit. So it's important to act quickly.

If you've been injured by a defective product, you may understandably feel misled, betrayed, and disillusioned. But one thing you need not feel is helpless. To learn how a Chicago defective product lawyer can recover all of the damages you deserve, please contact the Law Offices of Mark L. Karno & Associates today at 800-849-7182 for your free case evaluation.
