Take Action When A Defective Product Causes Injury

You have the right to expect that a product you have spent your hard-earned money on is safe to use. But poor product design, manufacture or labeling can cause injury or death.

To cite just one example, in a three-month period, child and infant product recalls rose 18 percent from the previous quarter, with more than 200 reported safety incidents causing 13 injuries and five deaths. New international standards for consumer protection may help, but when design problems, defects and inadequate safety information cause injuries, the lack of standard product identification and traceability means that only highly skilled products liability lawyers can secure just compensation for those injured.

How Our Firm Can Help

At Wise Law Offices LLC, our lawyers have represented dozens of individuals and families who have been injured due to defective products. We are skilled at interpreting the provisions of Illinois law, which impose liability on anyone who sells any product that has a defective condition that is unreasonably dangerous to consumers, users or their property. We also have access to the expert scientific and technical knowledge necessary to show that a manufacturer or seller is liable if the warnings given about the product are inadequate.

When our attorneys bring a products liability lawsuit on your behalf, you get a combination of trial and negotiating skill, case management sophistication, solid technical knowledge and innovative strategies to pursue your claim. As skilled trial lawyers, we aggressively present a knowledgeable yet practical case that is crafted to refute the arguments of manufacturers and their insurers. Whether your claim involves injury from design or manufacturing defects, failure to warn or product misuse, we have the experience to develop the most convincing arguments for you on scientific, technical and legal grounds.

We are well-qualified to handle the most complex factors involving expert witnesses, discovery and other trial preparation. With an extensive medical malpractice capability and in-depth understanding of medical terminology, our firm knows how to convey the pain and suffering you or a loved one suffered from a defective product such as:

Scattered Medication

Did Dangerous Drugs Or Medications Cause An Injury?

Companies that manufacture medications and pharmaceutical products have a duty to make sure that their products are not unreasonably dangerous for the consumer by following the proper standard of care and using appropriate technology to design, manufacture, inspect and test them.

When drug companies and medical personnel are negligent and violate the standard of care required of them, resulting in a patient’s injury or death, the lawyers at Wise Law Offices LLC are prepared to file products liability and/or medical malpractice suits for people in Illinois. We aggressively pursue compensation for economic losses, medical care, and pain and suffering.

Pharmaceutical companies can be held responsible for creating and distributing defective drugs or for failing to properly research a drug’s potential risks before placing it on the market. Similarly, physicians can be held responsible for prescribing drugs without adequately accounting for harmful side effects, or without assuring proper dosage and frequency of use.

Common Dangerous Drugs

  • Blood thinners
  • Antidepressants
  • Birth control
  • Anticonvulsants

Defective Medical Products Do More Harm Than Good

Medical products can be virtually any device used by medical practitioners to treat a disease, illness, injury or disability. Some are complex such as defibrillators, stents or implants; others may be simple such as antibacterial wipes.

When one of these devices fails to perform as designed and approved, it may result in a product recall, but patients may already have been harmed. By far the most frequent recalls have involved Class I devices, which include such simple items as elastic bandages and surgical gloves, and which are subject to the least amount of regulatory control by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

If you or a family member suffered injuries because of a defective medical product, you can seek compensation for your losses. At Wise Law Offices LLC in Chicago, our attorneys have considerable experience with dangerous product cases. We will investigate the claim and determine how to hold the negligent company liable. We have been representing Illinois residents for nearly two decades.

We Are Skilled Negotiators And Litigators

When medical products are inadequately designed and tested, improperly manufactured or inappropriately marketed without adequate warning or instruction about their use, patients can suffer severe injury or death. In such instances our lawyers are prepared to demonstrate responsibility on the part of manufacturers, medical personnel or sales representatives for negligence and liability.

We and our expert witnesses have in-depth knowledge of medical technology treatment and can demonstrate in court why violations of the proper standards of care entitle our clients and their families to compensation for pain, injury, medical care and other losses.

Defective Imported Product Cases Are Complex. You Need An Attorney.

Defective imported products are a growing problem in this country. Although manufactured outside American legal jurisdictions, they may be designed and produced under the auspices of U.S. companies that are responsible for the harm their products cause, no matter where or by whom they were actually made.

No matter how an imported product fails, it causes harm by not meeting legally acceptable standards of performance and safety. At Wise Law Offices LLC, our lawyers have the products liability case experience and technical knowledge to demonstrate liability and secure compensation for medical care, financial losses or other injuries suffered by our Illinois clients.

We know that these cases are confusing, which is why we take the time to explain everything to clients. You can be sure that we know how to hold all negligent parties liable for your injuries or the loss of a loved one.

Dangerous imported products range from:

  • Children’s toys made with lead
  • Faulty electrical products and household appliances
  • Defective machinery that causes injury or death

These are only a few examples. Please contact our attorneys about your specific case.
