As consumers, we are conditioned to implicitly trust the products that are sold to us. In certain cases however, manufacturers and suppliers betray that trust by exposing consumers to dangerous and harmful products. These products can range from drugs to toys to industrial equipment.
Product liability can stem from a defective design of a product, a manufacturer’s defect or a lack of warning or explanation of proper usage of a product. Injuries in these types of cases can include permanent impairment, loss of limbs or even death. In Virginia, those who have been injured by a product under these conditions may be able recover damages for medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of earning capacity, and permanent disability or disfigurement.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a product which you feel was defective in design, improperly manufactured or did not provide sufficient warning, you should first keep and store the product in the same condition as it was purchased or used. You should also try and recover all packaging, instructional books, warranties and receipts for the product. Lastly, you should contact an experienced attorney to discuss and review your potential claim.
