How to tell if one Physical Volume member of LVM has failed without opening the case.

I'm running a server with Ubuntu 14.04 and LVM set up. I have several physical drives set up as members of a Volume group and then a logical volume. Everything about LVM is set up properly, but lately I have noticed that some files are missing. Does LVM have a tool to test the PV's and tell you if one has failed? What's the easiest way?
