Product Defect Injuries Require A Skilled Trial Attorney

Product liability cases result from injuries that are suffered as a result of a dangerous product. Sometimes, it may result from one faulty product that was overlooked by quality assurance. Other times, a core flaw in the design of a product may lead to widespread injuries among consumers. Regardless of the reason for a product-related injury, the law firm of Maloney-Lyons, LLC, holds businesses accountable for the dangerous products they release to the public.

Our attorneys are well-versed in a range of product liability cases. Below are just some of the cases we commonly see at our firm.

Defective Auto Parts

While many motor vehicle accident injuries are caused by driver negligence, some are simply inevitable as they are caused by defective products within the vehicle itself. When you are seriously injured as the result of defective airbags, brakes or other auto parts, we will aggressively pursue a full recovery from the auto companies and manufacturers to help you cover all of your damages.

Prescription Drugs

While medication is designed to cure us of our ailments, sometimes they make us even worse. Faulty medications, side effects and other complications may lead to further injuries, higher medical bills and unnecessary suffering. When a drug manufacturer puts your health on the line, we fight for what’s right. We have helped those who have suffered injuries from drugs such as:

  • Accutane
  • Advair
  • Ambien
  • Botox
  • Chantix
  • Cialis
  • Crestor
  • Fentanyl
  • Gardasil
  • NuvaRing
  • Oxycontin
  • Prozac
  • Viagra
  • Wellbutrin
  • Yaz
  • Zoloft

If you believe your health has been impacted by any prescription medication, we will thoroughly investigate the situation and hold these drug companies accountable. The actions we take today will not only help you recover compensation for your injuries but may also help prevent injury to other consumers in the future.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma

Asbestos has been the center of product liability litigation for decades. Many workers were exposed to the dangerous substance in factories, construction sites, refineries and other industrial sites, putting them into great risk of developing lung-based illnesses or mesothelioma as a result.

If you or a loved one has been exposed to asbestos, is suffering from an asbestos-related illness or has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, we urge you to contact us as soon as possible. We will take swift action to hold these companies accountable for your exposure.

Dangerous Chemicals

There are dangerous chemicals in a wide range of products we use nearly every day. When you use these products as part of your work, prolonged exposure may result in serious health complications. Even worse, you may not know these products contain dangerous chemicals that put your health at risk. Some common products that may contain dangerous chemicals include:

  • Paints
  • Pesticides
  • Cleaning products
  • Beauty products
  • Electronics
  • Toxic waste

If you become seriously ill as a result of toxic chemicals in everyday products, you should take quick legal action to ensure you are properly compensated so you can make a full recovery. Your injuries are not your fault, and we will help you hold these companies accountable.

Other Design Or Manufacturing Defects

Defects largely occur in either the design process or the manufacturing process.

A manufacturing defect may only affect your one product. Something as simple as a faulty leg on a table or a missing screw could result in a very serious injury. Manufacturers have a duty to perform quality assurance and only release safe products to consumers, but their neglect may leave you seriously injured.

When a product is designed improperly, every single item that leaves the facility may be a danger to consumers. In these cases, it’s more important than ever to hold the business responsible for not properly testing their product or, in some cases, releasing it even when they are aware of the defective design.

No matter the circumstances of the dangerous product, we will fiercely advocate for compensation to cover all of your damages. This includes medical expenses, rehabilitation, lost wages, lost earning potential and any other expenses that arise as a result of your injury.
