Defective Doors Should Be Replaced. If You’ve Been Injured, Call Us.

When you enter a retail store or other building to conduct business, there is no way to tell whether the doors are defective. As a casual visitor to the business, you wouldn’t know. Building owners and managers are responsible for removing hazards that put their customers in danger of injury. If you have been injured by a defective door, chances are the business owner was aware of the problem and failed to do anything about it.

Product Liability Attorneys

The Robinette Legal Group, PLLC in Morgantown, West Virginia, is a personal injury litigation firm with more than 10 years of experience litigating insurance claims involving premises liability accidents, such as defect door injuries. For the first several years of our firm, we were highly successful insurance defense attorneys, fighting to protect our corporate and insurance clients from paying out excessive settlements and jury awards for frivolous lawsuits.

Since we now represent injured persons, we recognize that our lawyers’ skills and knowledge of insurance claims are better applied to helping innocent victims of negligence obtain the money they need for medical care, lost earnings and pain and suffering caused by the accident.

In addition to seeking compensation from the property owner, the door manufacturer may also share liability for injuries. Defective residential garage doors injure or kill hundreds of people in America every year.

We have experience representing clients in all types of premises liability and product defect injury and wrongful death claims, including:

  • Door and entryway injuries
  • Escalator and elevator injuries
  • Stairwell injuries
  • Parking lot and parking ramp injuries

Our Case Results

Crushed Foot Injury

While working in Morgantown, WV for a large national retailer, our client, a young woman in her early twenties, was ordered to use equipment that she was not properly trained to use. In the course of attempting to complete her task, she sustained a severe crush injury to her foot. Due to this incident, our client lost full use of this foot for the rest of her life and was living with chronic, persistent pain.

Our firm was able to obtain a sizable settlement which took care of all her medical bills and future treatment for her foot injury. The settlement was ample enough to allow this young woman to go back to college and retrain for employment which will accommodate her permanent disability.

Brain Injury

While timbering in WV, a heavy equipment operator sustained a permanent brain injury while performing the duties of his job. What price can you put on the loss of a fully functioning, fully reasoning brain? Jeff Robinette was able to negotiate a settlement that was annuitized to provide for this man for the rest of his life.

Crushed Leg Injury

Imagine having your leg crushed so badly in an accident that you have to undergo two surgeries to insert multiple pins and have a rod hammered into the bone just to stabilize the femur. Unfortunately, the first rod inserted into the bone didn’t accomplish the desired effect, so the rod had to be removed and surgically reinserted. Imagine the great pain, the months of therapy and recovery, and the frustration of knowing you can never return to the type of work you have performed for decades.

Jeff Robinette was able to obtain a great enough settlement to pay this man’s medical bills in their entirety and money enough to start a new business so he could work and live a productive life even with his permanent impairment.
