Liability in a Personal Injury Claim

Personal Injury Attorney in West Virginia

The potential for personal injury exists in virtually any scenario imaginable. When an accident is caused by a negligent individual or entity that fails to act in the appropriate manner to avoid an incident, that negligent party may be held responsible for the financial consequences of that injury. Whether stemming from a motor vehicle accident, a recreational accident or a workplace accident, victims throughout West Virginia can seek compensation for their injuries with the help of a skilled West Virginia personal injury lawyer.

Determining liability can seem simple at first glance, but the process of proving liability in the event of a personal injury may be quite a different story. Any legitimate personal injury claim should make a strong case for liability by identifying the injury and the cause of the injury and should then effectively show how the responsible party's negligence led to the events. For instance, rubber workers who regularly work with benzene solvents that are used in conjunction with defective or poorly-maintained equipment can contract diseases like leukemia and other blood cancers. In this case, product liability may play a role if the defect is in the equipment, or the employer may be held responsible if the equipment was not maintained properly, thus causing increased exposure.
