Globalization has led to more products being fully or partially assembled outside of the United States. This inevitably leads to negligence beyond our borders being responsible for catastrophic injuries when products fail or are unsafe.
You CAN Sue A Foreign Corporation
Once a product is brought to market in the U.S., the corporation that produces it is subject to all U.S. laws, including laws surrounding defective products.
You Will Need An Experienced Attorney
While you absolutely can sue a foreign corporation in the U.S. over a defective product, that does not mean it will be easy. Corporations devote their immense resources to hiring teams of corporate lawyers who will fight aggressively to limit payouts and avoid accountability for negligence.
At Farmer, Cline & Campbell, PLLC, we know their approach, we know their strategies and we know how to combat them. Since 1996 we have been obtaining fair damages for the victims of defective products and other negligence in West Virginia.
Do You Have A Valid Claim?
When pursuing damages in a personal injury claim against a foreign corporation, a successful claim will depend on the same factors as a domestic claim, namely:
- Was the product safely designed?
- Was the product manufactured correctly?
- Were the warnings appropriate?
If the answers to any of these questions is "no," then you may have a compensable personal injury claim. We can help you determine your rights and assert them to the fullest extent of the law.
