Chicago Product Liability Lawyers
Representing the Victims of Dangerous and Defective Products
Dangerous and defective products injure and kill millions of people each year. When a dangerous or defective product injures or kills someone, several parties along the product’s supply chain can be held liable – from the manufacturers and designers to the wholesalers and retailers.
For more than 30 years, the Chicago injury lawyers at Cary J. Wintroub & Associates have been representing accident and injury victims – including the victims of dangerous and defective products – and helping them to recover full and fair financial compensation for their injuries and damages.

What Is Product Liability?
Product liability is a legal theory that holds manufacturers and other parties along a product’s supply chain liable for any injuries, deaths, or damages caused by their negligent or intentional misconduct in connection with the defective product.
There are three general theories of product liability:
- Negligence – the defendant knew or should have known of the product’s defect and failed to take the appropriate steps to protect the public.
- Strict liability – a manufacturer can be held liable for injuries and damages caused by dangerous and defective products regardless of whether they knew or should have known that the product was unsafe.
- Breach of warranty – the manufacturer or distributor failed to comply with a written or implied warranty that the product will be safe and free from defects, or failed to provide adequate warning labels.
Some common types of product liability cases include:
- Unsafe Pharmaceuticals
- Defective Medical Devices
- Defective Vehicles
- Defective Toys and Children’s Products
