Under Illinois law, if dangerous or defective products are manufactured and sold, the company who manufactured the products may be liable for any injuries caused by the products. Products liability lawsuits are based on the common law principle of negligence. The attorneys at Healy Scanlon Law Firm have had decades of experience in defending the rights of products liability victims in the state.
One of the major determinants in deciding products liability lawsuits is whether the product was actually defective or damaged. Furthermore, the petitioner must have suffered an injury due to the defect in the product. Product liability may also extend to products that do not have sufficient warnings on the labels informing the consumers about allergens or any other dangers.
