How Product Liability Laws Protect Injury Victims
West Virginia’s product liability laws hold drug companies, their manufacturers and their distributors accountable for creating and dispensing defective medication. You may be entitled to compensation if your medication has a design flaw or a manufacturing defect or did not have appropriate labels or warnings.
Defective medication can have an extensive physical, psychological, mental and emotional impact on victims and their families, which is why personal injury victims can receive damages for:
- Medical expenses that include rehabilitation and long-term care
- Lost wages and earning potential
- Diminished quality of life
- Loss of companionship
- Other economic and noneconomic damages

If we take your case, we will pursue maximum compensation for your injuries. We will not back down from a legal challenge and are equipped to defend your interests in court.
