Legal counsel aids Virginians in products liability cases

Virginia residents place a tremendous amount of trust in the products they buy. We buy cars that we believe will provide safe transportation to and from our homes, schools and places of work. We buy appliances that we place in our homes for our families to access daily. Every product that a Virginian buys and uses is expected to work properly and without defect. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, as some products may be defective and cause injury, illness or even death.

In the event a person is injured using a defective product, he or she may have a products liability claim. There are generally three types of errors that might occur in a defective product case. One type is a manufacturing defect, which, as the name suggests, arises in the manufacturing process and may be attributable to variation in materials used in a product.

A design defect is due to the design of a product and the defect will be present in each product. Design defects are present in drop-side cribs, as this blog reported in a previous post. Defects of failure to warn occur when a manufacturer fails to warn of the dangers of a product being used in a particular manner despite being able to reasonably foresee consumer use of the product in such a dangerous manner.

Skilled legal counsel, like that of Surovell Isaacs Petersen & Levy, can aid persons injured by defective products. The firm's attorneys are familiar with how to complete thorough investigations into possible manufacturer negligence or design failures which can then aid a client's chances for recovery. In addition to obtaining compensation for their clients, a successful case may give clients the satisfaction of knowing that they helped hold a manufacturer responsible for the harm caused by a dangerous product.
