Discuss Your Injuries with Me for Free: (757) 785-0201
Did you know that more than 20,000 people are killed and 30 million people suffer injury each year due to dangerous or defective products, according to the United States Consumer Safety Commission (CPC)? While you may automatically believe that a product you buy is safe for its intended use, the statistics clearly speak otherwise. The Consumer Protection Safety Administration does have regulations in place for consumer products, but unfortunately, manufacturers sometimes fail to abide by them and end up hurting others due to their negligence or oversight. Product liability laws in the state of Virginia are specifically designed to protect consumers and provide compensation for injuries that are caused to them by defective products.
There are three basic types of product defects that can cause injury to a consumer:
- A defect that is inherent within the design of the product, even if manufactured according to specification
- A defect that is caused by a flaw during the manufacturing process
- Defective warnings or failure to warn about a foreseeable risk of misuse with the product
