Millions of injuries and thousands of fatalities are caused by defective products every year. Unfortunately, many defective product injuries go unreported because people do not want to take on large sellers and manufacturers in a personal injury claim to recover the compensation that they deserve. At the Robinette Legal Group, PLLC, our Morgantown personal injury attorneys understand that claims against large corporate entities may seem intimidating to injured individuals. However, our attorneys have dedicated their careers to advocating for injured clients. Our law firm is not afraid to take on any type of defendant, including large corporate clients with significant resources.

Dangerous And Defective Product Practice

  • Product liability claims are different from other types of personal injury cases with specific West Virginia laws that apply to defective product claims. Our West Virginia personal injury attorneys know product liability law and have experience recovering compensation for clients who have been injured by dangerous products.
  • Our practice is dedicated to helping injured parties and their families, and we believe that we have a duty to hold product manufacturers and distributors accountable in the interest of public safety. When sellers and manufacturers know that they will have to answer for product defects and consumer injuries, they think twice before putting profits ahead of product safety.
  • We have experience representing clients in all types of defective product cases, such as automobile defects, dangerous children’s toys and products, pharmaceutical defects, and toxic chemical exposure.

West Virginia Product Liability Law

In West Virginia, injured consumers may file a strict liability, negligence, or breach of warranty claim against manufacturers and sellers of dangerous and defective products. The unique facts and circumstances of your case will determine the type of claim you will file. In some cases, you may file more than one type of defective product claim against liable parties. Your lawyer will help determine the best legal strategies and theories of recovery to pursue in your case.

Personal Injury Compensation

Compensation under products liability claims is meant to put you in the position you would have been in had the accident and injuries not occurred. This amount is sometimes difficult to determine, especially when your injuries are severe and long-term medical care is necessary. Depending on the defect and your injuries and damages, you may pursue economic and non-economic damages in a defective product case.

  • Economic damages include any losses you have suffered with a fixed monetary value, such as medical expenses, lost income, loss of earning capacity, and other out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Non-economic damages do not have an assigned monetary value and generally involve pain, suffering, and emotional trauma that you experienced as a result of your injuries and damages.

Defective Product Attorneys

When you buy a consumer product, you have the right to expect that the product is reasonably safe for its intended use and that the manufacturer has tested the product extensively. If you or a loved one has been injured by a dangerous and unsafe defective product, you may have a claim for compensation.

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 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.

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.
