Princeton Consumer Protection Lawyers
Holding Manufacturers Responsible throughout West Virginia
When a company puts out a new product, they are expected to test it to ensure no one will be injured by using it. When a product causes harm, the manufacturer must be held responsible for the damages they cause. With nearly a century in practice, the West Virginia personal injury lawyers at Katz, Kantor, Stonestreet & Buckner stand ready to fight for the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled. We can discuss your options with you during a free consultation. Call today.
How to Prove Liability on the Part of the Manufacturer
Being injured by a product is scary. Sometimes there are electrical problems that can result in electrocution or shock, while other times safety guards may prove ineffective and cause injury. Whatever the case, your successful lawsuit depends on being able to prove that you were using the product in a reasonable manner and that doing so resulted in your injury.
You will need to prove:
- There was a defect in the product design that posed a threat
- You used the product in a reasonable manner
- You were injured as a direct result of using the product
Manufacturers pay for substantial policies in order to avoid being on the hook for medical costs needed to treat consumer injuries. In some cases, these companies are fully aware their product is unsafe, and they make as much money as possible in order to pay out settlements in the future.
Let Katz, Kantor, Stonestreet & Buckner Help
Our firm is fully aware of what it takes to build a strong case. The company’s insurer is likely to try to talk you out of filing a lawsuit, possibly by issuing you a small settlement with the promise that you have no chance of obtaining anything more. Our West Virginia personal injury lawyers know better.
During your free consultation, we can discuss the nature of your injuries and counsel you as to how to proceed with your case. We are committed to helping you obtain the best possible outcome for your situation, even if it means going to trial. Your recovery is our priority, and we want to ensure manufacturers of unsafe products are held responsible.
