Dangerous or Defective Products
Usually the products we buy in stores are safe to use, however, on occasion
a product can be extremely harmful. This can include a defect in a single
version of a product that one consumer has purchased or an inherent flaw
in the product design. Producers and distributors of products have an
obligation to consumers to make sure that their products are safe. If
the producers do not properly label their product to warn consumers of
its inherent dangers, they are liable under West Virginia product liability
law. All persons involved in the sale of a product can be held liable,
from the manufacturer of the component parts, to the retail store owner.
If you were injured as a result of a defective product, including defective
drugs, seek legal assistance as soon as possible. At our Charleston, West
Virginia firm, the product liability lawyers will work to investigate
your claim and ensure your rights are protected.
