Consumer Products Shouldn’t Have Hidden Defects

Let the buyer bewareis not a marketing slogan that Americans appreciate. When we pay hard-earned money for a product, we trust that there will be no hidden defects that cause the product to be dangerous and cause injury. Hiding dangerous designs and quality problems behind pretty packaging puts the consumer in danger.

America has some of the toughest consumer safety regulations in the world. Government agencies like OSHA and consumer watchdog groups work diligently to ensure that hidden defects don’t cause injuries and deaths when people use the product under normal circumstances. Our product safety regulations cover industrial products, automotive products, and consumer products used in the home.

Free Consultation ┬À No Attorneys’ Fees Unless You Win

If you have been injured because a product had a hidden defect or was designed unsafely, our Morgantown personal injury attorney at Robinette Legal Group is ready to help you fight to recover full and fair money damages for your injury and financial losses. We will help you recover compensation for:

  • Medical treatment and physical rehabilitation
  • Lost wages and earnings
  • Pain and suffering, reduction of lifestyle
  • Punitive damages

Why It Is Important to File for Litigation

Many people come to us saying that they don’t want to file a lawsuit, but the product manufacturer isn’t treating them fairly. You didn’t ask to be injured. All you did was purchase their product. There shouldn’t have been dangerous hidden defects. It sounds reasonable enough until you realize that the manufacturer is covered by product liability insurance and the insurance company is fighting aggressively to keep from paying out a large settlement or jury award.

An injury victim acting alone simply doesn’t have a chance against the resources of a large corporation and insurance giant. Getting an experienced, knowledgeable lawyer to represent you in a lawsuit is often the only way to protect your rights and get the money damages you need and deserve. Our attorneys are ready to handle everything for you.

Consumers aren’t expected to identify a hidden defect in a product. Manufacturers have a legal responsibility to ensure the product has been inspected and meets quality control standards before it enters the marketplace.

Robinette Legal Group represents clients in all types of injury and wrongful death claims resulting from hidden defects in consumer, auto, and industrial products, including:

  • Improper wiring resulting in electrical shock and burns
  • Gas line leaks in propane grills and gas stoves
  • Exhaust leaks in gas furnaces
  • Industrial equipment defects
  • Hidden seat belt problems and other undetected auto defects
  • Defective doors, escalators, and elevators in retail and business establishments

Our Case Results

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.

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.
