West Virginia residents may be interested in hearing that over 100 men and women are currently among the numerous plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the manufacturers of the Just for Men hair care products. According to their allegations in a dangerous or defective products lawsuit, the defendants have designed, manufactured and sold hair dyes and hair care products since 1987. The plaintiffs claim that the company has known that its product was defective and could cause dangerous and negative side effects even when the product was used as directed.
Per the complaint, even though the company was aware of the negative impact that its products could have on consumers, it continued to design, manufacture, promote and sell these products. In the lawsuit, it is asserted that some of the plaintiffs have suffered various side effects. Some of these include allergic reactions, scarring, burns, skin depigmentation, and even anaphylactic shock.
The plaintiffs allege that the company manufacturing and marketing the Just For Men products failed to warn consumers of the risks and side effects that could be associated with use of the product. In failing to provide adequate safety information to consumers, the company acted fraudulently and unlawfully. The plaintiffs are seeking monetary compensation for the physical, emotional and financial harm caused to them.
Manufacturers are expected to follow protocol that requires them to design, manufacture and sell a safe product for consumers. Any and all safety warnings are to be fully disclosed so that consumers can make well-informed decisions about the products that they are purchasing and using. When manufacturers fail to do this and allow dangerous or defective products onto the shelves of stores and into the homes and hands of West Virginia consumers, it may be possible to hold them liable for any injuries by pursuing a product liability suit.
