Defective home appliance claims in Illinois

Illinois consumers use so many different manufactured products every day, that they have come to take it for granted that such products are safe and free of defects. However, this is not always the case. In fact, even the most innocuous household products and appliances could be extremely dangerous for you and your family if they were negligently manufactured.

A defective household product, like poorly manufactured electric or gas heaters, bad wiring, or defective electrical paneling can result in household fires, serious injuries and even death. When these kinds of accidents happen, and sufficient evidence exists to show that the manufacturer of the product was at fault for the defect due to its negligence, those hurt by the accidents may be able to seek financial restitution in court.

At the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid, we have seen and represented plaintiffs who have been injured by all manner of household appliances, tools and other kinds of products. Plaintiffs in such lawsuits might seek compensation to pay for their medical care, rehabilitation services, permanent or temporary disabilities, property damages, pain and suffering and loss of quality of life. In some cases, they may also be able to seek money to pay for attorneys' fees, the cost of court proceedings, interest and punitive damages.

There is one final thing that people injured by defective products should keep in mind. In the state of Illinois, specific time limitations will apply to your ability to file your case, and if you wait too long to file, you could be forever barred from pursuing restitution. Therefore, if you or your loved one have been injured by a dangerous, defective or negligently manufactured home appliance, you should consider your legal options as soon as possible following an accident.

  1. "Committed To My Cause"

    I was struck by a car while cycling and severely, almost fatally injured. A team of excellent medical professionals performed complicated and extensive surgical and medical procedures as part of a successful effort to restore my health....
    -Jeff D.

  2. "Could not have made a better choice"

    We found Mark [Mathys] through the web after an auto accident in October 2011. While selecting someone you don't know to represent you can be a gamble, we could not have made a better choice....
    - Dave

  3. "Very satisfied"

    Mark [Mathys] is very professional. He responds almost immediately, via email, to any question, comment or concern I have and if he is not able to respond right away, he will let me know. I have been very satisfied with Mark so far and I am happy to be his client.
    -Jennifer

  4. "Easy to talk to"

    Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid were very professional and easy to talk to. Prior to working with them, my wife and I had no real experience with the legal system beyond a house closing, yet Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid explained the whole process to us very well. I knew that whenever I had a concern about our case or the legal system in general I could call their office or send an email and receive answers the same day... -Larry

  5. "Provided very wise advice"

    I've dealt with attorneys on a variety of issues, almost all of them since leaving college and entering the workplace. Mr. Mathys was the first attorney I had any real experience with, and I was impressed then and remain so. He provided very wise advice and always kept me informed. In the end, he delivered a favorable result. I recommend him highly.
    - Tyler D.

  6. "In-depth knowledge of the law"

    Mark [Schneid] is an excellent and skilled attorney and demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the law when he helped settle my dog bite lawsuit resulting from a traumatic incident. He explained what was needed of me and how I should handle the situation in a professional manner.
    - Karen K.

  7. "They went to bat for me"

    Not long ago I was involved in a car accident where I was hit by a gravel truck at an intersection. After I called Mathys & Schneid, even though I didn't have a very large case, they made me feel like I was one of their most important cases. They went to bat for me with the trucking company's insurance and got me a settlement. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. -Dan H.
