Serious injuries caused by dangerous or defective products cause thousands of injuries every year. When you are injured by an unreasonably dangerous or unsafe, defective product, you may have a case against the company that designed, manufactured, distributed or sold the product. Product liability differs from personal injury and the set of rules occasionally makes it easier for an injured person to recover damages. Here at Kralovec, Jambois & Schwartz, a Chicago product liability attorney can represent you if you suffered an injury from a faulty product.
Chicago Dangerous or Defective Drugs Lawyers
According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, every year, $271 billion is spent on prescription drugs here in the U.S. However, taking medication is not without its risks and many drugs come with adverse effects that are often downplayed by drug manufacturers. If you are suffering with additional medical conditions caused by a defective drug or a medical product, our Bloomington product liability lawyers may be able to help you seek appropriate compensation. We regularly handle cases involving medical products such as the following:
- Johnson & Johnson DePuy Orthopaedics ASR hip implants recall
- Darvon and Darvocet recall
- Stryker hip recalls
- Testosterone therapy
Damage from medical products can cause long-term, permanent and future medical problems. Our staff evaluates all of the factors concerning your situation and then pursues compensation on your behalf that will meet your current and future needs.
Contaminated Injection Meningitis
Meningitis is a life-threatening and rare infection, resulting in inflammation of the membranes covering the spinal cord and brain. In 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention discovered that a tainted batch of spinal steroid injections was responsible for an outbreak of fungal meningitis throughout the eastern states and here in Illinois. If you suspect that your meningitis is connected to an injection you received, you may be eligible for compensation. If you have lost a loved one to this deadly infection, you have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party.
Protecting Your Interests
In addition to defective medical products and prescriptions, our staff also handles cases involving nursing home abuse and neglect, medical malpractice, birth injury, brain injuries and motor vehicle accidents. Personal injury cases may have a limited timeframe so it is important to seek legal representation as soon as possible.
