When you purchase or simply use a product that has been manufactured, you are doing so with the understanding that the product will work properly. Unfortunately, many manufacturers, designers, and retailers are more concerned with their profits than protecting the consumer using these devices. If a company has failed to uphold proper safety standards for their product and you or a loved one are injured as a result, you may be entitled to recover compensation.
If you or someone in your family was hurt at work or at home because of a negligent manufacturer, retailer, designer, or defective medical device, our West Virginia defective medical device lawyer at Jividen Law Offices, PLLC is prepared to fight for your rights. We are committed to holding producers of dangerous and defective products accountable for placing consumers in harm's way.
With substantial experience handling product liability cases, our West Virginia lawyers are prepared to offer skilled representation in your case in order to achieve the fair compensation you deserve for the damages you have suffered.
There are different kinds of product liability claims that can be filed, including failure to warn / marketing defects, design defects, and manufacturing defects. It is important to retain a West Virginia personal injury attorney who has experience handling product liability cases and who can use this experience to determine what type of claim you may have. Claims can be made through the concepts of negligence and through strict liability. In negligence, it must be shown that the manufacturer of the product owed a duty to you, that when breached caused an injury. Strict liability means that the manufacturer is responsible for all defects, regardless of their level of negligence. Making this determination often requires considerable legal knowledge, so choosing a lawyer with a high level of skill is very important.
