Products Liability Defense
At Shuman, McCuskey & Slicer, PLLC, we represent clients in a wide variety of products liability defense cases, ranging from simple automobile liability cases to multi-million dollar defective product cases. Additionally, we act as regional counsel and litigation managers for several large national manufacturers in matters throughout the state of West Virginia and in the adjoining areas of Virginia, eastern Kentucky and eastern Ohio.
Our products liability defense attorneys have handled cases involving both industrial and general consumer goods, including hoists, cranes, machines, presses, fireworks, firearms, chemical cleansers, appliances, children's products, motorcycles, all terrain vehicles, automobiles, pharmaceuticals such as FenPhen, Rezulin, and OxyContin, and flawed medical devices.
A Broad Range of Product Liability Knowledge
With years of living and practicing law in the region, our products liability defense lawyers possess a particular knowledge about coal mining and mining equipment that has proven to be a very valuable asset in defending manufacturers of mining equipment involved in major mining accidents.
Likewise, our extensive medical background has also been very effective in defending medical and pharmaceutical products liability cases. In addition, our firm has handled many "dangerous product" disputes that have involved alleged Consumer Protection Act violations.
Lastly, all of our products liability defense attorneys have actual trial and appellate experience in defective product cases. As such, we are able to employ aggressive strategies at both the negotiating table and in the court room in order to achieve the kinds of results that will satisfy our clients.
