West Virginia Injury Attorney
Hurt by a Defective Product? Call Us Today!
You can sue for monetary damages when you or a family member has been injured
as a result of defects or undisclosed dangers in the use of certain products.
The courts in West Virginia will often rule in favor of the plaintiff
when it can be proven that a manufacturer put consumers at risk through
faulty assembly of a product, design defects or improper labeling and
instructions. The settlement in a product liability case will often be
significant, due to the nature of this type of action, which is often
pursued as a large
class action lawsuit.
A common example of defective products leading to legal action is when
components of an automobile cause injuries or
wrongful death in
car accidents. Misfiring airbags that cause harm to the passengers or other factors
such as dangerous seatbelts or crumple zones in the vehicle frame can
lead to a claim for damages against the car manufacturer. Another situation
that frequently provides grounds for a claim is when a pharmaceutical
dangerous drugs that were either not tested fully for side effects or were contaminated
in the factory, causing illness or injury to the users.
