A: First, the fact they are defective as a group doesn't mean yours are unless yours failed. Otherwise you have no case as you haven't been hurt.

Why not get a consultation with a member of the West Va Trial Lawyers Assn that handles product cases--they give free consults.

Have your doctor check out your back but be sure not to tell the doctor you are considering litigation otherwise they will be reluctant to see you for fear of being involved in litigation.

A: Since you mention a recall, it could be worth your time to do some research to learn if there are currently legal actions involving a class of plaintiffs. If law firms are already handling such cases, that might be a place to start in terms of seeking an initial consultation. Good luck
