Chicago Product Liability Lawyer

Product Liability

Illinois product liability law allows individuals to recover damages for injuries sustained due to a defective product. For example, assume you work at a Chicago manufacturing plant. One day, while attempting to free a jammed machine part, the machine starts running without warning and severely injures you as a result. This injury leaves you permanently disabled and unable to return to your former job. Under Illinois law, you may have a product defect case against the machine's manufacturer for failure to warn, a design defect, mechanical defect or strict tort liability.

Product liability applies to more than just manufacturing products. It can involve virtually any product from an instrument, machine, motor vehicle, truck, tire or other consumer product used either in the home or at work, including medical devices and medical products. The only condition is that you must be using the product for its intended purpose.

Last year, consumer products injured more than 33 million people in the United States. Due to the complex and technical nature of product liability law, you must seek the best legal representation. Kreisman Law Offices has more than 40 years of trial experience in Chicago. We have tried product liability and product defect cases before Illinois juries.

Product liability law seeks to compensate persons who were harmed by defective products. It also motivates equipment and machine manufacturers to produce safer products and instruments with clearer warnings, instructions and safety mechanisms. Illinois product liability law covers motor vehicles, trucks, machinery, construction equipment and other consumer products, including medical devices. The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that unsafe products, including toys, cause about 28,000 deaths each year in the United States.

Client Reviews
“We were devastated when our 31 year-old son was killed by a negligent driver. Kreisman Law Offices did everything to help us through this very difficult time, including coming out to the house several times which was a comfort. My wife and I were extremely pleased with Mr. Kreisman’s compassion and care for this very tragic and troubling time.” C.B.
“Bob Kreisman did everything possible in handling the trial of this case. It was devastating that I traumatically lost my leg above the knee in this truck accident. However, it was not an easy case to win. His staff was so prepared for the trial that it was not surprising that the settlement offers continued to rise until we finally accepted the multi-million settlement while the jury was still deciding the case. My wife and I were delighted that we could secure our future with this settlement. We thank Mr. Kreisman and his incredible staff for working so hard for our benefit.” T.P.
“My mother died because doctors dropped the ball. I called Robert Kreisman and he immediately set up an appointment for my entire family. We met at his offices and I was very comfortable that he would do the best for my dad and my brothers. He spent hours with all of us in preparing for depositions and he hired top notch experts, all of which contributed to an incredible settlement before trial. I know that he is dedicated to his cases and particularly to the people he works for and the people who work with him. He continues to be generous in contributing annually to my mother’s memory and to make known to the public the signs and symptoms of brain tumors.” V.S.
“My dad was ignored and mistreated at the nursing home that we placed him in. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we made a big mistake, particularly after my dad developed these terrible bedsores. We transferred him as we were contacting Mr. Kreisman. He was referred to us by a lawyer we have known for a long time and respect his opinion. Mr. Kreisman and his staff worked tirelessly to resolve this case. We were fortunate to have his services and will recommend him to anyone.” T.J.
