If you are injured or harmed in any way in routine use of a product, West Virginia product liability law may offer you protection. Personal injury can be a severe financial burden, causing you to miss work and forcing you to pay expensive medical bills. In more severe product liability cases, permanent disability or long-term illness can prohibit working and rob you of a lifetime of income. When a product or drug you have bought and used as intended causes you personal injury, the manufacturers, distributors, and retailers may be held accountable under West Virginia product liability law, and our lawyers can help you win compensation. Additionally, we can help family members of victims who were killed as a result of a dangerous or defective consumer product.

Dangerous or Defective Products
Usually the products we buy in stores are safe to use. On occasion, however, a product can be extremely harmful. This can be 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 for that product, from the manufacturer of the component parts to the retail store owner.
