U.S. Virgin Islands Defective Products Lawyers

U.S. Virgin Islands Defective Products Lawyer

Attorneys Representing Clients Injured By Dangerous Products in St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. John

Life in the U.S. Virgin Islands can be peaceful and relaxing, but a serious injury can destroy this sense of calm and throw a person's life into disarray. When injuries occur because of defective or dangerous products, negligent manufacturers, suppliers, or retailers should be held responsible, and victims can pursue compensation for the damages they have suffered. At Colianni & Leonard LLC, our attorneys have been practicing in the Virgin Islands for more than 50 years, and we are highly experienced in personal injury cases.

Injuries From Defective Products

People who live or work in the Virgin Islands or tourists who are visiting may be injured by a wide variety of product defects, including:

  • Defective automobiles - Faulty automobile components such as brakes, tires, seat belts, or airbags can lead to serious car accident injuries. Determining liability in cases involving rental cars may be a complex matter, and multiple negligent parties may be included in these types of lawsuits.
  • Boating accidents - Cruise ships, sailboats, and other vessels are common sights in the Virgin Islands, and defective parts on these boats can lead to drowning, slip and fall accidents, or other serious injuries.
  • Airplane accidents - Seaplanes are a common method of transportation between St. Croix, St. Thomas, and St. John, and defects or improper maintenance of any equipment used on these planes can lead to crashes that result in major injuries or wrongful death.
  • Buildings and structures - Due to the possibility of hurricanes or tropical storms, houses, hotels, businesses, and other buildings in the Virgin Islands must be sturdy. If substandard materials are used, or if structures are not properly maintained, people may be injured by collapsing walls, ceilings, or roofs.
  • Medical equipment - The tools, machines, or other equipment used by doctors, surgeons, nurses, or other medical personnel can cause permanent damage or disability if they do not function correctly. 
  • Medications and prescription drugs - The manufacturers of dangerous drugs may be held responsible if medications harmed patients. Injuries can occur because of side effects, interactions with other drugs, or a manufacturer's failure to provide instructions about the proper use of the medications or warnings about the potential dangers of using these drugs.
  • Dangerous household products - Some products which people use regularly in their daily lives, such as baby powder or weed killer, have been found to contain harmful materials that can lead to serious medical conditions, such as cancer. The manufacturers of these products should be held responsible for the harm they have caused to consumers.

Lawsuits involving injuries which take place in the U.S. Virgin Islands can be complex, due to the distance from the rest of the United States and the multiple parties who may be involved. At Colianni & Leonard LLC, LLC we can communicate with you over the phone or through email as we address your legal concerns, helping you reach a settlement that fully compensates you for your damages.
