Helping you recover compensation following a workplace accident

Not all workplaces are created equally; however, no matter what industry you work in, your health and safety should be a priority. Employers in West Virginia and other states across the nation are required to follow health and safety rules and regulations in order to ensure that employees are free from risks and dangers. Despite the efforts made by state and federal agencies, some employers fail to comply with these regulations. This unfortunately can lead to serious and even fatal workplace accidents.

Don't navigate the aftermath of a car accident alone

While countless trips on the open road are completed without consequence, there are some instances when that unfortunately isn't the case. Motor vehicle accidents can cause a wide range of injuries from something seemingly minor as a sore neck to the total loss of life. With such stakes, it's important to know that you are not alone if you've been the victim of such a horrific occurrence.

Motorists in West Virginia and elsewhere encounter a wide variety of vehicles. While this typically includes other automobiles, this could also entail buses, larger trucks, commercial vehicles and bicyclists. Thus, it is important for drivers to be attentive of all vehicles traveling around them, large and small. A negligent driver, whether they are operating a personal vehicle or driving for work, could be the cause of a serious and even fatal motor vehicle collision.

What are your consumer rights regarding defective products?

It is challenging to get through our days without the help of goods and products. Consumer goods help us complete tasks or make things easier. Whether it is a vehicle, tool, household item or even a medical device, it would seem impossible to live without these. Although these are very useful and reliable items, they do not always work as intended. While this may seem like a frustrating situation, it is also a one that could involve a defective product harming a consumer. Thus, when individuals are harmed by consumer goods, it is important to understand whether it is in fact defective, how this defect occurred and what legal recourses are available to the injured consumer.
