What are defective product injuries?

Illinois residents rely on the products we buy to be safe for use. Unfortunately, that isn't always the face. The Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid can help if you have been injured by a defective product.

There are many different types of product defects that can affect you. They often fall into problems in three categories: manufacture, design, and labeling.

Problems with design mean the item itself is inherently flawed and dangerous. Perhaps the company manufacturing isn't aware of this. If they are, they are being negligent by not fixing the issues and continuing to sell products. An example are toys banned for posing a choking hazard by design.

Problems with manufacture means that the item itself is fine, but something in the manufacturing process is not. Examples include certain tires that wear out too easily on one side, or engines that have the potential of stalling out because some parts don't fit properly. Air bag recalls are a good example of manufacturing failures.

Finally, problems with labeling have to do with how the product is presented to consumers and how consumers are told to use it. For example, if a hair dryer gets heated up near the mouth but that is not warned for, someone could burn themselves on it.

If you have been injured due to a defective product of any sort, you may have options for compensation available to you. You can speak to our attorneys for more information, or take a look at our web page on personal injury, linked here.

  1. "Committed To My Cause"

    I was struck by a car while cycling and severely, almost fatally injured. A team of excellent medical professionals performed complicated and extensive surgical and medical procedures as part of a successful effort to restore my health....
    -Jeff D.

  2. "Could not have made a better choice"

    We found Mark [Mathys] through the web after an auto accident in October 2011. While selecting someone you don't know to represent you can be a gamble, we could not have made a better choice....
    - Dave

  3. "Very satisfied"

    Mark [Mathys] is very professional. He responds almost immediately, via email, to any question, comment or concern I have and if he is not able to respond right away, he will let me know. I have been very satisfied with Mark so far and I am happy to be his client.
    -Jennifer

  4. "Easy to talk to"

    Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid were very professional and easy to talk to. Prior to working with them, my wife and I had no real experience with the legal system beyond a house closing, yet Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid explained the whole process to us very well. I knew that whenever I had a concern about our case or the legal system in general I could call their office or send an email and receive answers the same day... -Larry

  5. "Provided very wise advice"

    I've dealt with attorneys on a variety of issues, almost all of them since leaving college and entering the workplace. Mr. Mathys was the first attorney I had any real experience with, and I was impressed then and remain so. He provided very wise advice and always kept me informed. In the end, he delivered a favorable result. I recommend him highly.
    - Tyler D.

  6. "In-depth knowledge of the law"

    Mark [Schneid] is an excellent and skilled attorney and demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the law when he helped settle my dog bite lawsuit resulting from a traumatic incident. He explained what was needed of me and how I should handle the situation in a professional manner.
    - Karen K.

  7. "They went to bat for me"

    Not long ago I was involved in a car accident where I was hit by a gravel truck at an intersection. After I called Mathys & Schneid, even though I didn't have a very large case, they made me feel like I was one of their most important cases. They went to bat for me with the trucking company's insurance and got me a settlement. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. -Dan H.
