It is frustrating and overwhelming when an innocent West Virginia consumer suffers because of a dangerous product. When manufacturers fail to warn consumers of possible risks or mislabel products, victims may consider filing products liability claims in order to recover related losses. Recently, the FDA has released a warning to consumers regarding the risk of taking certain products that claim to enhance male sexual performance.
Many of these dangerous products are labeled as dietary supplements and make baseless promises to consumers. These products are available in stores, through online vendors and even in vending machines. The FDA warns that many of these products may contain dangerously high levels of certain active ingredients.
Consumers often mistake products with labels that make claims of all-natural or herbal ingredients as being healthy. Some consumers may assume that these labels mean that the products are safe, effective and even approved by the FDA, when, in fact, they are not. If a person believes that he or she has suffered from physical side effects that are related to a dangerous product, he or she has may have the option to seek financial compensation through a civil claim.
Victims of dangerous consumer products do not have to suffer alone. With the help of a lawyer, a West Virginia victim can hold a manufacturer accountable for the physical pain and suffering endured. Financial restitution may be obtained for medical expenses, lost wages from missed work and emotional trauma. If a person believes that he or she may have grounds for a products liability claim, it is wise to seek the counsel of a knowledgeable attorney.
