If you've been harmed by a defective product, we can help

Even though we expect the products we use every day to be carefully designed and manufactured to be safe and not cause harm when used for their intended purposes, this is unfortunately not always true. Some of the most commonly defective products include automobiles, home appliances and prescription drugs and medical devices. There is a process of testing and evaluating products to help protect against dangerous defects, but problems still occur frequently. Many companies will issue product recalls once they receive reports of a defective product, but these recalls do nothing to help consumers who may have already suffered an injury from a product.

What should I do immediately after an auto accident?

Many Virginia residents may know that certain steps should be taken after an auto accident without knowing exactly what those steps are or why they are important. For victims of a car accident who decide to file a car accident claim, however, knowing what to do and actually doing those things can make a significant difference in the potential success of a claim or lawsuit against the at-fault driver.

Treatment and prognosis for traumatic brain injuries

Head injuries can result from sports contact, falls, motor vehicle accidents, and other various incidents. Unfortunately, head trauma that results in a traumatic brain injury can have serious effects and implications on a person's life as many symptoms are quite disruptive of normal functioning and can be long-term or even permanent.

How can I prove liability for a slip-and-fall accident?

Property owners must maintain their properties in good condition, especially if the properties are frequented by consumers or the general public. Should property owners fail to comply with this responsibility and someone suffers an injury from a dangerous property condition, the property owner may be held liable in a premises liability lawsuit.
