Chicago Product Liability Attorneys: Hazardous Products In The Marketplace

Sometimes, manufacturers rush to get a product to the market. They value making quick money over taking time to create a product that they know will be safe. This rush-to-market mentality can result in serious injuries or even death when they release a product that is dangerous or defective.

Our Chicago product liability lawyers at Steinberg, Goodman & Kalish hold negligent companies accountable for their dangerous or defective products. We can fight for damages and justice on your behalf. We can try to prevent similar injuries from happening to others.

Dangerous And Defective Products In The Marketplace

There are numerous types of hazardous products available in the marketplace that have hurt individuals in the past. Some of these continue to cause problems and injuries to unsuspecting consumers. We can help clients with the following product liability cases:

  • Faulty motor vehicles and car parts
  • Defective construction equipment and tools
  • Unsafe food products
  • Faulty weapons and firearms
  • Faulty household appliances
  • Dangerous toys and deadly baby products
  • Defective clothing

Consumers deserve to purchase safe products. They should be able to expect that the products they purchase are safe and not likely to cause harm or injury. When a product turns out to be hazardous, our lawyers strive to hold manufacturers accountable for their negligence and wrongdoing.

Dangerous And Defective Medical Devices And Products

Defective medical devices can be especially scary. A medical procedure is supposed to help someone improve a condition, not make it worse. A medical device can cause harm as the result of a design defect or because it was manufactured improperly. Design and manufacturing defects can occur with:

  • Medical or diagnostic equipment
  • Prosthetic devices, surgical implants or equipment
  • Pacemakers, defibrillators or stents
  • Contraceptive devices
  • Unsafe medications and drugs

Our product liability attorneys have specific experience with defective medical devices involved in spinal fusion devices and other orthopedic devices and, more specifically, defective pedicle screws.

Sometimes, in a product liability action involving a defective medical device, there are overlapping issues of medical malpractice. Our experienced medical malpractice lawyers can help you pursue all avenues of potential recovery when this happens.
