If you’re like most consumers, you probably assume that all products are tested for quality and safety before going on the market. However, all too often we hear about injuries and wrongful death cases due to faulty toys, tampered medications and/or legally authorized drugs, and defective medical devices. If you’ve been injured by a defective product, call the Law Offices of J. Younes to help you get the settlement or verdict that you deserve.
Product liability laws are designed to protect consumers from unsafe products. Damages in these cases can be awarded to compensate victims for their pain and suffering caused by these injuries, including lost wages and medical bills.
Product liability law can apply in two main situations:
Yes, you can sue the company that manufactured or sold you the product for negligence in a product liability lawsuit. Depending on the situation, you’ll need to file a lawsuit against one or more defendants. You can also sue the manufacturer of the product directly or the company that sold it to you.
For online transactions, you can also sue the website that sold you the product. You can also add additional defendants if they were involved in the chain of events that led to your injury. When filing a product liability lawsuit, it’s important to name all appropriate defendants. Doing so will help ensure that all parties involved in your case are notified and will be held accountable for their actions.
The first step in building a strong case is to consult with an experienced Chicago product liability attorney, who will guide you with gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses to build a strong case. When filing your complaint, you must state the facts of your case and provide details about your injury. This might help you get your case through the court system and expedite the process.
To win a product liability lawsuit, you must prove that the product was defective, that you were using it as intended, and that the defect caused your injuries. To do this, an experienced Chicago product liability attorney will be able to help you with your claim.
