Aurora Products Liability Attorney Aids Injured Clients
Were you injured by a defective product in Illinois?
When a company puts a product on the market, buyers and users presume that it will be safe and work as intended. Unfortunately, errors in design, production or labeling can put consumers in danger. If you have been injured by a defective product, Amoni Law Offices, P.C. can assert your right to financial recovery just as we’ve done for thousands of clients since 1986. Larry Amoni is an Aurora products liability attorney who understands how to take on tough opponents like large manufacturers and their multinational insurance companies. Whether the injury in your case stems from a faulty household device, vehicle, prescription medication or other object, my firm will fight to hold the negligent defendants accountable.
Firm seeks relief for victims under Illinois product liability law
Proving that you were harmed by a defective item might require significant evidence regarding the product and the injuries you suffered. Often, the defendants in these cases are large corporations that could face millions of dollars in exposure if their products are found to be dangerous. As a seasoned personal injury lawyer, I know how to collect evidence during the discovery process that shows where the manufacturer went wrong and what they knew about the risk their product presented. In Illinois, you have two years to file a claim, but it’s best to get started promptly given the potential length and complexity of the case.
Common product liability injuries
A range of injuries can be linked to defective products. For instance, poorly made electrical appliances might cause burns, cuts or eye damage, and product liability claims linked to auto accidents could involve serious medical conditions, such as bone fractures, spinal cord damage and traumatic brain injuries. Products containing hazardous substances have led to cancer and other illnesses. Our firm consults with medical experts to tie defendants’ negligence to the harm inflicted on victims in personal injury and wrongful death cases.
Common causes of product liability cases
The roots of a product liability case might go all the way back to a flawed design. In other cases, the product might have been safe on the drawing board, but a manufacturing error created a hazard. Certain items work as directed initially, but become dangerous over time, and consumers are not aware of the danger. Other times, products work as they should, but labeling errors or misleading sales representations put the user at risk.
Types of defective products that harm their users
Attorney Larry Amoni pursues compensation for victims in product liability claims involving all types of products, including:
- Vehicles and their parts — Frequently, manufacturers recall cars and trucks due to defective vehicle designs and problems that occur during the production process. However, when faulty parts on automobiles and airplanes aren’t replaced, serious, or even deadly, harm could result.
- Consumer products — We represent victims of poorly made consumer products, including household appliances, toys and baby items.
- Pharmaceuticals — Manufacturing and labeling errors that affect medications might result in severe side effects or drug interactions that pose a lethal threat to those who take them.
- Medical devices — Hip implants and other devices that are used to alleviate a medical condition sometimes end up causing more pain and harm to patients.
- Chemicals — Building materials and other products that use chemicals for a particular purpose have increased the prevalence of cancer and other diseases.
Whatever your particular product liability claim entails, our firm has the ability and determination to challenge negligent companies and battle for proper payment.
Who is legally responsible in product liability cases?
The manufacturer of the defective item is the most likely defendant in a product liability case. However, an outside designer, packager or seller might also be liable for the harm that results from a product flaw. Our firm relies on experts when necessary to pinpoint where the problem occurred so that clients can recover compensation for medical bills, time missed at work and the pain and suffering that they experienced. We also review the facts closely to counter any potential defense that the victim caused their own injury by using the product in an improper manner.
