Thousands of injuries are caused each year by dangerous and defective products. Manufacturers or sellers; suppliers of parts; wholesalers, retail stores, in fact any of those involved in supplying a dangerous product can be held liable. Typically, injuries of this kind are covered under what is known as product liability law.

What is Product Liability? Under Virginia law, there are three major causes of defective products. They can include, but are not limited to:

  • Defective designs or flaws resulting from faults in the engineering or design process
  • Products that are manufactured improperly or not according to design.
  • Products that are improperly labeled, come with unclear or incomplete instructions, and/or do not warn consumers about hidden dangers.

Virginia attorney Mike Imprevento heads the product liability division of Breit Drescher Imprevento. In addition to handling cases of defective design for SUVs, trucks, boats and small planes, Mike and his staff have handled cases involving pharmaceuticals, power tools and industrial machinery, food, asbestos, lead paint, defective medical devices and contraceptives, and many other products that have caused harm to the public, civilians and the military.

If you are injured by a defective product, you may have an easier time recovering compensation for your injuries than those injured in other ways. This is because special rules and approaches apply in the area of product liability law. It is important to gather as much information as soon as possible. Record what happened, get the names and phone numbers of any witnesses, and anything else you feel should be recorded. This information will be incredibly helpful to you and your attorney during the claims process.

In a Virginia court, a person may make a claim against a manufacturer or seller for either negligence or breach of warranty. In most types of personal injury law, to hold someone liable for your injuries, you must show that they were negligent, and that their negligence caused your injuries. However, in a breach of warranty action, you can recover damages without actually showing that the manufacturer or seller was negligent. Anyone who regularly sells or rents a product and warrants that the product is safe, fit and merchantable is as responsible as the designer or manufacturer. This ultimately benefits consumers who seek to recover damages in court.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a product you bought, the law is on your side. Contact Breit Drescher Imprevento at 757-622-6000 or email us today for a free and immediate review of your case.
