Product Liability

Product Liability Lawyers

Our SCHREMPF, KELLY, & NAPP, LTD., personal injury lawyers are dedicated to helping persons and families who have been injured by unsafe products. The most dangerous items are those that do not function as intended, unexpectedly break, or fail to have adequate safety features. If you have been injured by an unsafe product such as a defective seat belt, air bag, or car seat we can help.

The bad news is that millions of injuries and tens of thousands of deaths nationwide are caused every year by defective or unsafe products. Many of these injuries could have been averted if manufacturers had only taken additional steps, required by law, to assure consumer safety.

The good news? Our law firm's outstanding product liability attorneys will passionately represent your interests against manufacturers and distributors of defective or unsafe consumer products. You can count on our reputation for getting results for our clients in Southern Illinois and Eastern Missouri.

How We Litigate Your Claim

When you are harmed by a product that you did not know to be unsafe, you may be entitled to receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, loss of physical capacity, and pain and suffering. In many jurisdictions, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the manufacturer or distributor of an unsafe product.

When a product malfunctions due to a defect and causes serious personal injury to you or a family member, the law requires the manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer of the defective product to bear the losses caused by the defect. We may base your claim on theories of negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty.

How We Seek Damages

Strict liability means the defendant in your case may be responsible even if the company was not negligent. A manufacturer and seller can be held liable even if they were not negligent but if the product in fact turned out to be defective.

Failure to warn of dangerous ingredients or failure to give adequate instructions for the safe use of a product may also be considered defects. This kind of neglect and flaw in a defective food product could cause a user to suffer serious illness or injury.

Under the law of contracts, a claim of product liability might also be based on a breach of warranty either expressed or implied. Meaning you may have a claim even you were not given a written warranty.

Protect Your Evidence

The most powerful evidence in your product liability case should be in your possession: the product itself. Please don't let it get away from you. Store it in a secure location. Our staff of investigators and other expert witnesses will need to thoroughly evaluate the product.

Our Track Record Is Public Record

Our track record is public record and is on "the books" for all to see. A brief but dramatic list of our achievements for our personal injury clients in the fields of product and premises liability.

In order for your case to be completed and recorded, we must first have your claim filed before the expiration of a statute of limitations. If your lawsuit isn't on file with the court within a certain time frame, it may never be heard. Statute of limitations varies depending on the type of claim and the jurisdiction so be in touch with our Alton law offices today.
