You can still sue for a defective product that was made in China

Conventional legal wisdom used to pretty much say that if you were injured by a defective product that came from a Chinese manufacturer, you were going to have an uphill battle winning a lawsuit and actually collecting the judgment on your claim.

Keep your children safe on Illinois roadways

Since car seats for babies and children were invented, they have helped save many precious little lives. When used correctly, these seats protect users from different kinds of injuries in a motor vehicle accident. Parents who want to continue protecting their children should make an effort to learn everything they can about the proper use of car seats.

Your legal options for injuries caused by defective products

As American consumers, we typically trust in the designers and manufacturers of the products we purchase. Most of the time, this trust is well-founded. However, sometimes our trust and even our well-being are jeopardized by the use of products that have been found to be defective. When these products cause injury or death, victims often do not know where to turn for the help they so desperately need. They may not understand how the law can help and this is where an attorney first begins to assist the victims in seeking compensation.

Recent product recalls

That's definitely something that you want to happen properly to avoid injury.

Mandatory garage door safety features

If you have a garage door that was installed in the last two decades, and if it has an automatic, motorized opening system, it probably has a light sensor and a pressure sensor. When something breaks the light beam, if the door is coming down, it stops and reverses direction. The same is true if it encounters unexpected pressure before it is all the way down.
