If you’ve been injured or lost a loved one because of a defective device, a highly skilled Illinois product liability lawyer at The Cates Law Firm, LLC can stand up for your rights.
Our firm understands how heartbreaking it can be to learn that a medical device that was meant to revolutionize health care has caused an injury or taken the life of someone you loved. At The Cates Law Firm, LLC we are dedicated to providing you with the aggressive representation you deserve for your defective product case.
Types of Defective Medical Devices
Our Illinois liability attorneys represent clients who have been injured by a variety of defective devices, including:
- Artificial lumbar and cervical disks
- Breast implants
- Dental implants
- Intrauterine Devices or IUDs
- Knee and hip replacements
- Pacemakers, defibrillators, heart valves, and other heart devices
- Pain pumps
- Pharmaceutical drugs
- Surgical mesh and transvaginal patches
The manufacturers of these products are responsible for making sure they are safe for their intended use and properly warning you about known side effects. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and a product defect can cost someone their health or in more serious instances, their life.
Instead of taking responsibility for their mistake, many companies go to great lengths to protect themselves from liability when their customers get hurt. When this situation arises, an Illinois product liability lawyer at The Cates Law Firm, LLC will stand up for the consumer’s rights and ensure that a powerful corporation is held accountable for their dangerous product.
Fortunately, victims of defective medical device cases are entitled to recover compensation for their damages. They can seek a settlement for:
- Loss of a normal life
- Lost wages and loss of earning capacity
- Medical bills
- Pain, suffering and emotional distress
- Wrongful death when a product defect contributes to a death
What an Illinois Product Liability Lawyer Will Do
Due to the complex nature of product liability claims, it’s vital to seek legal representation if you or a loved one has been a victim of a defective medical device. Most defective medical device cases involve complicated state and federal regulations as well as defendants who are typically large corporations. In order to fight against these powerful corporations, you will need an aggressive Illinois product liability lawyer who has the knowledge, experience and resources to hold the responsible corporations fully accountable for your damages.
