Do you have grounds for a products liability claim?

When a person seeks medical treatment, it is with the expectation that the care given will meet a certain standard. West Virginia patients also have the right to expect that medical implants and medical devices used for medical treatment are safe. When dangerous medical devices cause harm, patients have the right to seek compensation through a products liability claim.

Protecting the rights of those hurt in coal mine accidents

Coal mining is an inherently dangerous job, but those who are employed in the coal mines of West Virginia still have the right to a workplace that is as safe as possible. Coal mine accidents are often serious, sometimes fatal, and those affected could be dealing with the aftermath for years to come. We know how difficult it can be for hard-working miners, which is why we are dedicated to protecting their rights.

Personal injury compensation for concussions

West Virginia readers know that a concussion can have a serious impact on a person's life, but this type of injury is often dismissed as minor. Medically speaking, many concussions are relatively minor, and most people make a full recovery. However, the pain and suffering felt during recovery can have a far-reaching emotional and financial impact. A car accident victim suffering from a concussion may have valid grounds for a personal injury claim.

Distracted driving and the increased risk of personal injury

West Virginia drivers have the right to arrive at their destination safely and have legal grounds to pursue compensation when another driver causes them or a loved one harm. As readers know, distracted driving is one the greatest threats to this right of personal safety, and as a result, April has been named Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The risk of personal injury and even death is significantly higher when a driver is distracted.
