Richmond Defective Product Attorneys

Dedicated Defective Product Attorneys in Virginia

Defective products can cause injury or damage because of the defect in the product, the labeling, or the way the product was used. Inadequately warning consumers can result in liability to the manufacturer. Beyond the manufacturer, others involved in the chain of commerce are often liable for injuries that defective products cause. Each year, more than a million Americans are injured because of defective products.

Experienced Representation for Defective Product Injuries

Defective products can arise from improper design or improper manufacturing techniques. The degree of inherent problems with a product is generally increased if there is a defective design, since all of the products manufactured will have this characteristic.

On the other hand, if there is a problem with the manufacturing process, not all the products may be defective, but liability can result from negligently manufacturing the product. It's recommended to consult with an attorney before talking to a representative of the insurance company.

Key Legal Theories in Defective Product Cases:

  • Manufacturing Defects Explained: In such defective product cases, the injury was caused as a result of a defect in the manufacturing of the product. An example would be a chair that was built with a small crack in the frame, which breaks when used, causing an injury.
  • Understanding Design Defects: In these defective product cases, the injury was caused by a poor design (even though there may be no defect in the individual product itself). A common example would be a piece of industrial machinery that was built without a proper safety device, and an injury happens while using the machine.
  • The Importance of Adequate Warnings: These defective product cases refer to injuries caused by a product known to be potentially dangerous which was sold without a proper warning to the consumer. An example would be an over-the-counter drug sold without a warning of the hazards of use with certain other drugs or excessive consumption, or possible side effects from its use.
