When people purchase new products, they do not expect that they will need the help of a product defect law firm Virginia residents can rely on. Unfortunately though, this is all too common of a need because of the many innocent people who are injured every year.
In the United States, before a product is approved to be made available for the public to buy, it undergoes strict testing to ensure that it will be safe for the public to use. Even with these measures in place, hundreds of these products are recalled each year because of malfunctions (or just faulty design or flaws in the manufacturing, etc.) that injure innocent people. When a person is injured from using a product in accordance with the product’s instructions and heeds any danger warnings, they may be entitled to compensation from one or more of the parties that was involved in making the product available to consumers. In the past decade, there have been many individual and class action lawsuits against companies that have made products that have harmed consumers.
