Attorneys Litigating Defective Product
Serving the State of 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 involving the products are often liable for injuries defective products cause. Each year more than a million Americans are injured because of defective products.
You Should Call Page Law Firm, P.C. When You Have Been Injured Due To A Defective Product.
Defective products can arise from improper designs or improper manufacturing techniques in making the product. The degree of inherent problems with the 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. YOU NEED TO CONSULT AN ATTORNEY BEFORE TALKING TO A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE INSURANCE COMPANY
Three legal theories common to most defective product litigations are as follows:
- Manufacturing defect-- In such defective product cases, the injury was caused as a result of a defect in the manufacture of the product. An example would be a chair which was built with a small crack in the frame, which breaks when used, causing an injury.
- Design defect-- 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 which was built without a proper safety device, and an injury happens while using the machine.
- Failure to warn or inadequate warning-- These defective product cases refer to injuries caused as a result of 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
