Defective Products

Every year, thousands of American consumers are seriously injured or killed by products they believed to be safe. From gas barbeques and child safety seats to medical devices and dangerous drugs, products with serious design flaws, substandard workmanship, and improper labeling continue to enter the marketplace. When a consumer is injured using a product or drug as it is intended, the manufacturer, as well as others along the manufacturing and retail chain, may be legally liable.

Our Chicago defective product and personal injury lawyers are experienced and determined litigators in product liability cases and are proud of the successful results we have obtained for our clients. If you or a loved one has been injured by a product in Chicago, contact our defective product lawyers for a free review of your case.

Product Defect Causes Paraplegia (undisclosed amount)

A Rubin & Machado’s attorney settled a case during trial in Charleston County, Illinois, for an undisclosed amount due to a confidentiality agreement. The 48-year-old man was an employee of a paper processing company and was rendered a paraplegic when a co-employee tipped a loaded, several-ton pallet on top of his head as he was sitting next to his work desk. The suit was brought under a product liability theory against the manufacturer and designer of the pallet.

Dangerous Drugs

Dangerous prescription and over-the-counter medications are, unfortunately, among the most common defective products that reach the market. In many cases, these drugs are FDA-approved medications that have been pushed through the approval process without adequate testing for long-term side effects. In other cases, natural herbs and medications sold in health food stores have bypassed the FDA-approval process altogether and undergone no safety testing.

Dangerous drugs can cause immense and, sometimes, irreparable damage to patients. The Chicago personal injury and defective product lawyers at Rubin & Machado understand the devastation that these injuries can bring. They have many years experience in pharmaceutical law, including experience with litigation tied to Vioxx ®, Celebrex®, Bextra®, Baycol®, and drugs containing valsartan. If you or someone you love has been injured by a dangerous drug in Chicago, contact our personal injury lawyers today and begin rebuilding your life.

Dangerous Drug Causes Kidney Failure (undisclosed amount)

A Rubin & Machado’s attorney settled a case in Cook County, Illinois, against an international drug manufacturer of a statin drug (cholesterol lowering drug) for an undisclosed amount of money in accordance with a confidentiality agreement. The plaintiff was an elderly man who was prescribed the drug after heart surgery. The drug led to kidney failure and this Rubin & Machado client is now on dialysis for the rest of his life.
