Product Liability

Product Liability Lawyer – Morris, IL

SERVING GRUNDY, WILL & LASALLE COUNTIES

There has been a lot of discussion recently about big businesses and the way in which they view their clients. For the most part, it seems as though the majority of these companies are far more interested in profit than they are the well-being and safety of their consumers, and this can lead to serious injury. From faulty infant toys and equipment to poorly created electric appliances and sundry additional potentially dangerous products, thousands of disabling and serious injuries can occur every year. And when that happens, you will need to find an attorney who is able and willing to fight aggressive on your side to ensure that you receive the compensation to which you are entitled.

The Rigazio Law Office understands how to handle these kinds of cases, known as product liability cases. We will work with you through this difficult time to help ensure that the rights of yourself as well as your loved ones are upheld fully. With over 30 years of experience, you can rest assured that we have plenty of experience handling product liability cases. Our attorneys understand how to go about building and, later, presenting a case to give you the best chance at full compensation possible.

Product Liability Law

It might seem as though product liability is an issue that most consumers willing accept when they buy a product, but the fact of the matter is that companies have ethical and legal obligations to ensure that their products are not going to harm those who purchase or use them. When that obligation is not upheld and injury does occur, the company should be held responsible for their actions. This is especially true if the injury or accident happened as a result of rushing products to mark, ignoring safety concerns, or cutting corners. The company that sells, offers, or makes the product in question has the responsibility to provide compensation and financial recovery to the victim and their family.

At Rigazio Law Office, we are familiar with the financial, physical, and emotion damage that defective products can do. We see consumers every year who have sustained significant injuries from defective and unsafe products. Many of them could have been avoided if only the distributor or manufacturer of the product in question had taken additional steps to make sure their product was safe for consumers.

If you or a loved one have been the victim of a defective product, then you might be entitled to compensation or your suffering and injuries. This might include compensation or any of the following:

  • Lost Wages
  • Medical Expenses
  • Suffering
  • Pain
  • Loss of Physical Ability
  • Mental Anguish
  • Punitive Damages

Note that punitive damages are available to punish companies whose conduct was particularly egregious and that demonstrates a wanton or reckless disregarding of public safety.

We fight for you to ensure that you receive the compensation to which you are entitled so that you can focus your attention on recovering, not worrying about medical bills.

Product Recall Attorney

Products are often recalled due to design and safety issues, particularly with ATVs, car seats, food contamination, and defective toys. In fact, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has reported than more than 22,000 deaths occur each year as a result of faulty consumer products. In addition, they state that as many as 29 million injuries related to the same field occur each year.

If you have been the victim of a product recall, you have the right to pursue compensation. That might include any or all of the following:

  • Loss of Physical Ability
  • Lost Wages
  • Medical Expenses
  • Mental Anguish
  • Pain
  • Punitive Damages
  • Suffering

It is important to keep in mind that if you win your case, it is not only yourself who will benefit. The public in general will benefit because every time these companies are held liable for their faulty products, they stand to become a little more cautious before releasing blatantly unsafe products into the market.

Product Liability Cases

When you make the decision to file a claim for product liability, you will be suing the manufacturers or providers of the faulty products. Almost anyone along the supply chain can be found liable for damages, including the retailer, the wholesaler, and the manufacturer. In order to win a liability case, it is imperative that your attorney be able to demonstrate the following:

  • The product was “unreasonably dangerous” and it was via this defect that your injury was caused
  • You used the product as intended and according to the instructions provided by the manufacturer, but were still injured
  • The product that was responsible for your damages was not “substantially changed” from its sales condition
