Product Liability

Product Liability Attorneys

Items that we rely on for everyday tasks can sometimes cause injury and even death if they are defectively designed or have a defect which occurred during manufacture. It can be tough to accept that these innocent items could be the cause for our pain and suffering, especially when the resulting injuries prevent you from living the life you are used to.

At times, it can feel as though you have more questions than answers. How will I pay my mounting medical bills? How will I support my family while I recover? What about my job? Do I need a lawyer to help me?

We at Allen & Allen understand that you feel your life has been turned upside down, and we have made it our mission to help you restore stability and peace of mind.

Know Your Rights

Virginia law governing product liability cases is complex and can be especially challenging for plaintiffs. An experienced attorney can help to determine whether your injury qualifies as a viable claim, and that attorney’s assistance can be essential in collecting financial compensation if it does. Damages may include reimbursement or compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Future medical needs
  • Loss of property

Before speaking with any insurance company representatives, you can protect yourself by contacting an attorney at Allen & Allen to discuss your situation. If you have a case, our experienced attorneys can help you by:

  • Collecting evidence that may need to be presented to protect your claim to appropriate financial compensation for your injuries.
  • Dealing with the product manufacturer’s insurance company.
  • Obtaining a fair settlement offer for damages through negotiation.
  • Litigating your case if necessary to get the result you deserve.

In What Ways Could a Product Be Dangerous or Defective?

  • The product may be defectively designed in which case the entire product line may create a potential hazard to consumers.
  • The individual product may have a defect which occurred during manufacture, in which case only the products affected by the failure to manufacture them properly may cause injury to consumers.
  • The product may not have had a warning label which adequately explained how consumers should properly use or handle the product.

What Should I Do Next?

  • Keep the product in a safe and secure location in the same condition it was in at the time of the accident.
  • Locate and safely keep all documents related to the product, including packaging materials, instruction books, warranties, receipts, etc.
  • Never give or return the product to the retailer or to the manufacturer, even if the manufacturer promises to return the product after examination or testing.

Contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible after your injury. This can make the difference between winning and losing your product liability case.

Injury Types

Paralysis

When the damage to the spinal cord is classified as a "complete" injury to the spine, nerve sensation and voluntary movement is diminished, resulting in paralysis. A victim of a car accident with this type of injury will have to deal with physical limitations for the rest of their lives, often limiting them financially as well.

Spinal Injuries

Upon impact in an auto accident, the spine and spinal cord can experience damaging compression that can lead to bone breakage or nerve damage. A spinal cord injury can lead to extensive medical and rehabilitation costs and can impact the quality of life of a victim forever.
