Chicago Manufacturing Defect Attorneys
When a product is defectively manufactured, there is a good chance that the defect will not be a common one. Nonetheless, the problem is likely to affect small percentage of products, each of which may potentially cause serious harm to the person using the product. Product safety shouldn’t be determined by the luck of the draw. At Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC, our Chicago manufacturing defect lawyers can determine liability in incidents like these and then pursue a course of legal action against the responsible party.
The Manufacturer May Be Liable for the Accident
As long as we can demonstrate that a defect was created at some point during the manufacturing process—that is to say, if we can prove the product deviated from its intended design—there is a good chance that we will be able to hold the manufacturer responsible for its error. The actual task of proving that a product was not properly constructed is usually pretty simple; for instance, if you were sold a bike that had a improperly welded frame, it would be relatively easy to prove that it was not manufactured the way it was intended, particularly when compared to another bike of the same model with a correctly welded frame.
Pursuing Compensation with a Manufacturing Defect Claim
After we establish that the manufacturer can be held liable for the product that caused your or a loved one’s injury, our legal team will be able to turn our attention toward the development of a comprehensive legal strategy that we will use to help you exercise your rights. That being said, one of the first things we will need to be able to do is to assess the anticipated expenses that will be associated with your injuries, now and later on down the line. While every accident will have its own unique set of circumstances to take into consideration, just about every claim of this kind will seek compensation for the following:
- Short and long-term medical and rehabilitative care
- Any income that cannot be earned during your recovery
- The pain and suffering you experienced
Aside from any compensation that we may be able to recover with your claim, it is worth noting that cases like these often help to reform problems in the manufacturing industry by acting as a reminder of the consequences of negligent manufacturing practices. Your case can make a difference. So, though this may be a difficult time for you and your family, it will be in your best interests to take action against the responsible party.
