Charleston Product Liability Attorneys Representing Your Claims
What are West Virginia’s Product Liability Laws?
When a defective or dangerous product is the cause of injury, there may be a case for product liability. This involves the manufacturer or seller of a product being held accountable when a consumer that has purchased this product is injured. Consumers have expectations of a product and how it should operate. When a product does not live up to these expectations, those in the supply chain of that product could be breaking the law.
One of the most famous product liability cases involved a 79-year-old woman that sued a popular fast food chain after arguing that the coffee she had just purchased was too hot after it spilled onto her lap. While this case was quickly misrepresented as frivolous, the facts were that the victim suffered third-degree burns across her pelvis and required an eight-day stay in the hospital to undergo skin grafting, disfiguring her for life. The attorneys, in this case, proved that the coffee at this chain was overheated and more likely to cause injury than coffee served at other establishments, providing a basis for the original claim that this was a harmful product that caused a serious, and unnecessary, injury.
