From pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices to children’s toys and automobile parts, thousands of products make their way into American homes every day – many of which were, unfortunately, not adequately tested for safety or marked with necessary warning labels. It is for this reason that a significant number of consumers are hospitalized or seriously injured as a result of defective and faulty products each year. In fact, statistics show that approximately 220,000 children are injured by defective toys annually, while at least 20,000 people are killed by an array of faulty products every year.

Get in touch with our firm if you were injured by any of the following:
Tires, brakes, airbags, accelerators and seat belts, which are inherently dangerous due to design flaws and manufacturing errors, are all common examples of defective products. Dangerous pharmaceuticals that result in serious side effects like strokes, suicidal thoughts, heart problems, respiratory ailments, various forms of cancer, and other debilitating health damage are similar examples. Every year, warnings and recalls concerning such products are published by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other government agencies due to consumer reports of adverse effects and problems with such products.
For example, the FDA now requires drug companies to mark antidepressants with a “black box” warning to the effect that the drugs double the incidence of suicidal behavior. A competent personal injury attorney in Chicago can help you in building an effective injury claim or lawsuit to help you secure the compensation you deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more following the use of any defective product. All negligent parties should be held accountable for the harm that they have caused, and Duncan Law Group is ready to help you do just that. Call now to take the first step!
