You go to work every day expecting to work hard using the industrial tools for the job. When a piece of industrial equipment or manufacturing product is defective or breaks down unexpectedly, it can result in a serious or even deadly accident. The American manufacturing plant is supposed to be among the safest industrial workplaces in the world. There should be no place for defective products or tools that leave people injured or dead.
The Robinette Legal Group is a prominent personal injury litigation firm that protects the rights of plaintiffs injured in workplace accidents caused by industrial equipment defects. As a former insurance defense litigation firm, we have represented numerous manufacturers and insurance companies seeking to limit their liability in cases involving dangerous manufacturing and industrial products. We now use that knowledge and experience to help you protect your rights.
We know how hard insurance defense law firms will fight to protect themselves from a large settlement or jury award. Our lawyers work harder. That means knowing how to investigate the causes of the accident, which parties share liability for your injuries and the full extent of your financial damages over your lifetime. We are not a personal injury settlement mill. We fight until we get the maximum amount you are entitled to.
Most workers in West Virginia are covered by state workers’ compensation law. If you apply for benefits, you are suspending your right to sue your employer for additional damages caused by negligence. There is one exception to this, involving special circumstances — when your employer acted with “deliberate intent” under W. Va. Code 23-4-2.
If we determine there is another party responsible for your injuries or wrongful death claim, we vigorously pursue full and fair money damages against them, while you continue to receive the workers’ comp benefits. You will not give up workers’ comp by seeking compensation for third party liability.
We represent clients in all types of injury and wrongful death claims involving industrial equipment defect, including:
We have experience representing clients in the most complex wrongful death and catastrophic injury claims resulting from auto defect accidents, including loss of eyesight, concussions and closed head injuries, paralysis and spine injuries, bone fractures, burns, amputation and disfigurement.
