Product Liability

Whn you buy or use a product you expect it to work properly and to remain safe for you and your family.

Unforunately, far too many companies put more emphasis on making money than consumer safety, taking short cuts in the manufacturing or design that can compromise the safety of consumers. Defective products lead to thousands of serious personal injuries each year.

See this video about a Toyota recall.


In some case products have been rushed to the store or shop floor without proper testing. Even where products have been soundly designed they could hurt consumers due to defects in manufacturing, poor handling, or inadequate instructions, causing serious harm to users.


Cars and tires

Clothing, in particular kids clothing

Children’s car seats cribs, and other baby items

Children’s toys

Medications and medical devices


Any product or device you use that causes an injury may be considered defective. It might be a product that’s obviously potentially dangerous like a chain saw. Or it may ebe a defective electric toothbrush.

Our experienced Virginia Beach product liability attorneys John Cooper and Jim Hurley can investigate the product that caused you harm or injury to determine if a defect in manufacture, design or packagingled to your injury.

Product liability law is complex. All manufacturers of consumer products hide behind large insurance companies, lobbyists, and attorneys.
