Successful Product Liability Representation
A retired Chicago firefighter enjoyed an active life until one day, during a ride on his motorcycle, the bike went out of control. The crash left him a quadriplegic, paralyzed in both his arms and his legs.
But the crash was not caused by his own fault. Tobin & Muñoz, LLC, successfully helped him and his wife sue the motorcycle manufacturer and prove that the crash was a design defect, not a result of human or environmental error.
Product Liability Case Examples:
- Swihart v. Blades Machinery Co, et al., (Northern District Indiana), successfully defended manufacturer of grinding equipment in multimillion dollar product liability suit by worker who sustained traumatic amputation.
- Moreno v. Barber Coleman Co., et al., obtained a substantial settlement in wrongful death suit on the behalf of an estate, wife and children of employee killed in a factory explosion. The case involved the successful prosecution of a product liability claim against this international manufacturer as the cause of the explosion.
- In McMahon v. Harley Davidson, we successfully represented a retired Chicago firefighter and his wife in a products liability lawsuit against a motorcycle manufacturer. The firefighter was rendered a quadriplegic when his motorcycle went out of control due to a design defect. The lawsuit settled for $9 million during jury deliberations and the parties entered into a confidential settlement.
Before the jury could reach a verdict, the lawsuit settled, a win for this couple whose life was forever changed because of a defective product.
This case is an example of how the firm’s lawyers work. They will vigorously seek justice for those who have suffered serious injury or motor vehicle defect.
Like the motorcycle defect, auto defects also have caused life-altering crashes. Product liability cases also can involve medical devices such as hip implants, stents and pacemakers.
