West Virginia residents don’t expect that purchased products will pose a hazard to them if they use the product as instructed. However, if a product is not designed or manufactured properly, it could result in a defect that could potentially cause injury to a consumer. Defective household products come in many shapes and forms. In this particular case, it is a power tool just like those that many homeowners across the country own and use regularly.
A lawsuit was filed the first week of October against both Power Tools Specialists Inc. and Rexon Industrial Corp. The suit was filed by a man who says that he was injured while using one of the saws that these companies manufactured and sold to consumers. The lawsuit is citing product liability, negligence, and implied warranty breach.
According to the details of the lawsuit, the man was using a table saw on October 26, 2013. It was at this time that he was injured due to the alleged defects in the saw. The extent of his injuries and the specifics of how he received them are not mentioned in the report, but he asserts that the defendants were aware of the saw’s defects and failed to remedy them.
The man is seeking various damages for pain and suffering, loss of earning capacity, medical expenses, mental anguish, and physical impairment. Individuals who find themselves in similar situations with defective household products may want to seek the help of legal counsel. This will allow injured victims in West Virginia the chance to learn of their legal rights and options in holding the responsible parties liable for their actions.
