West Virginia is one of the few states which have created a special judicial forum to handle mass litigation cases. West Virginia Trial Court Rule 26.01 et seq. prescribes the criteria for referral to the Mass Litigation Panel.
For a client subjected to the Mass Litigation Panel system, it is important to have a law firm which is experienced with the system. FWL has represented clients before the Mass Litigation Panel in every year since its creation. Our clients have participated in the only medical monitoring jury trial convened by the Mass Litigation Panel. The favorable verdict is presently on appeal before the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals. Our client is presently involved in a class action pending before the Mass Litigation Panel.
Mass litigation cases have multiplied in recent years. Mass Litigation Panel experience is indispensable in selecting a lawyer. The breadth and depth of this experience benefits each prospective client.
FWL accepts representations in mass litigation matters throughout the state of West Virginia.
