How We Use Our Experience To Explore Cases Like Yours

Many people who are involved in an accident are unaware that the accident was caused by a defective component of the product. What they do know is that a serious accident occurred, leaving them with significant injuries and related financial problems. They come to our lawyers for answers and for sound advice on how to move forward.

Our personal injury attorneys have extensive knowledge of Illinois product liability law and 100 years of combined experience with defective product cases. We work with leading experts and investigators to thoroughly examine accident scenes, equipment, and other evidence to identify if a faulty component caused or contributed to the accident. If it did, the manufacturer, engineer, distributor, or other responsible entity may be held financially responsible for resulting injuries or losses. This is known as product liability.
