A woman is suing manufactures after a sealer allegedly injured her hand.

Silvia Lopez filed a lawsuit Oct. 31 in Cook County Circuit Court against Weldotron Inc., Weldotron 2000 Inc., Weldotron Corp., Olsen's Packaging and Parts Inc. and Stack-On Products Company Inc., alleging negligence, strict liability and breach of implied warranty of merchantability against each defendant.

According to the complaint, prior to Nov. 3, 2011, the defendants manufactured, designed, maintained, repaired, modified, assembled or sold a particular sealer machine and then sold it to Lopez's employer.

Lopez claims she was using the sealer machine as intended and instructed by her employer on Nov. 3, when the sealing head came down onto her right hand, causing a severe injury.

The complaint alleges the defendant's machine was defective and unreasonably dangerous when manufactured, designed, or sold to Lopez's employer.

Lopez is seeking damages in excess of the jurisdictional limit. She is being represented in the case by attorneys at Mahoney Crowe & Goldrick PC.
