Products liability claim filed re IVC filter that pierces vein

Patients in West Virginia and elsewhere rely on the manufacturers of medical devices to properly test a product before it is released for use. These devices are used to treat countless medical conditions, many of which are implanted in a patient, even if only temporarily. A woman in another state has recently filed a products liability lawsuit against the manufacturers of a removable IVC filter.

Family members may suffer as well in fatal coal mine accidents

Many mining companies consider the safety and health of employees to be a top priority. However, there are some inherent risks involved within this field, and although less common than previous years, coal mine accidents continue to pose a serious threat. A recent accident in a mine in West Virginia reportedly resulted in the eighth mining death of the year in the U.S.

Woman and son awarded $15 million in products liability claim

Certain prescription drugs may have side-effects that a patient in West Virginia might want to be aware of before using them for treatment. However, in some cases the manufacturer of the drug might fail to inform doctors, or even patients, of any potential risks that could be involved. A woman in another state was recently awarded $15 million in a products liability lawsuit after her son suffered birth defects in relation to a drug she was taking while pregnant.

Fatal pedestrian accidents can lead to wrongful death claims

With warmer weather closing in, individuals in West Virginia and elsewhere might choose to walk from place to place for a variety of reasons. Whether to save on gas prices or just for enjoyment, this means of transportation offers numerous benefits, but there could be some safety concerns. Although crosswalks and traffic lights can increase pedestrian safety, accidents do occur. Many of them are catastrophic, and some result in civil claims for wrongful death.
