While I was riding the thread on the right upper part got loose and part of the fork shot out. The pressurized part hit firstly my face (my cheekbone was broken) and then it hit my right eye so badly that it damaged my eye completely (eye nerve was damaged, eye was broken onto 3 parts, lower eyelid...

It sounds like you have sustained damages from the part coming off sufficient to justify a product’s liability action.
I would take the bicycle and fork part to a competent lawyer in the county where the incident happened with experience in products liability law. Also bring your medical... Read more »
I got a 3k check from my car insurance, repair shop was supposed to charge me it plus $500 deductible from my end. They only charged me $500 total and are just now asking for the check.
I live near Chicago, Illinois . Thanks lol
answered on Feb 3, 2022
Well, its your lucky day. The amount of check from the insurance was based upon an estimate of damage provided to them by their adjuster or an outside body shop. The fact that the body shop charged you less in the end should not change the amount of the check from the insurance. If the check is... Read more »

You need to consult with an attorney to find out if it is registered or taken
It is a long story, but basically I was selling an item through an app with a protection policy of as long as you buy through the app then you are safe, but recently I got tricked into thinking this guy used the app to purchase some items to me, but he didn't and sent a fake email as... Read more »

I was quoted a price on a used vehicle from a dealership in Centralia, MO. The dealer quoted the vehicle at $21,905. I agreed to purchase the vehicle and the dealer sent over buyers order to my bank to secure funds. After funds were secured and the morning I was supposed to pick up the vehicle,... Read more »

Based upon your description the sales/transaction documents will need to be reviewed. Since the dealership is in Missouri, you should contact an attorney licensed in Missouri whose practice is concentrated in consumer law.
A few months ago, my car started showing me a warning that the front passenger restraint system has a problem with it, which could cause non-deployment of airbags in the case of a crash. I gave it to the dealer for repair, and they told us they fixed the problem. The warning continued after I got... Read more »

It sounds like the dealer has had the car multiple times for the same problem. If this car is relatively new, you may have a Lemon Law complaint. They probably didn't know that the car wasn't repaired the first couple of times they gave it back to you, so it would be hard to prove they... Read more »

This sounds like something more closely related to copyright law than product liability law. If you reposted your question in the Copyright section, there would be better chances for input from an attorney who would understand the issues before you. Good luck
Hopefully, you're all safe at this time. I have a question regarding who is responsible for paying for the maintenance cost in the buildings?

I was negligent with the payments towards the storage facility and they told me they couldn't give me access to whom they sold my belongings to.
answered on Apr 11, 2020
You could check with an Illinois attorney as to what the best way to proceed might be. Based on Illinois law, or the provisions of the storage contract, the facility could have legitimate reasons for not divulging the identity of the person. It's possible they have genuine concerns about being... Read more »

You should stop everything you are doing and consult with an attorney immediately. Do not contact the relevant parties or make any statements about the matter until you are represented. Also, I recommend acting quickly, as you have a limited amount of time to respond to a summons.

injured in a different way from the product?
answered on Jan 8, 2019
Depends on the injury, the product, how it was being used. Contact a member of the Ill. Trial Lawyers Assn who handles product cases---they give free consults.
answered on Jan 8, 2019
there is a statute of limitations that runs from the date of injury. Some states have a statute of repose that runs from the date a product was made. Contact a member of the Ill. Trial Lawyers Assn--they give free consults.
The glass milk bottle was sitting in the sink. Was being washed out and exploded
answered on Nov 21, 2018
The situation you explain is simply not possible. A glass bottle cannot explode any more than a water glass can explode. On the other hand, if a sealed milk bottle was in the sink, before it had been washed, it is certainly possible for back area growth to result in sufficient pressure to cause... Read more »

I don’t practice in Illinois but your question went unanswered for four weeks. It could be a case of a defective product and it could also be a case of an adverse reaction to a normal product.

I was involved in an accident. I hit a parked car , however the entire vehicle flipped causing me to be hospitalized, I lost wages at work, etc. I later found out the car had frame damage which played a huge role in why the car flipped instead of staying upright.

It is certainly possible you have a viable cause of action, as well as the ability to recover for the personal injuries sustained.
