Companies Who Make Defective Products Injure Millions Every Year
Dangerous products injure millions of people every year. In fact, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, defective products cause about 30 million injuries and 22,000 deaths annually in the United States.
When companies design, manufacture, distribute, and sell consumer products that hurt and kill innocent people, they need to be held accountable for their negligent practices. At Phelan Petty, we advocate relentlessly on behalf of victims in Virginia who have suffered injuries from dangerous and defective products of all kinds.

We Fight for Victims of Dangerous and Defective Products in Richmond
Product liability law is the area of the law that involves holding companies responsible for the injuries their products cause. Product liability laws vary by state. In Virginia, our laws tend to favor manufacturers and put injured victims at a disadvantage. Our state is consistently ranked as a top state for manufacturers and other businesses that revolve around consumer products.
Not only do our laws favor corporations over injured victims, but product liability cases are extremely complex and challenging to handle. That’s why it’s critical to entrust your defective product case to an experienced attorney who thoroughly understands Virginia product liability law and who knows all the traps and pitfalls that the law creates for injured victims.
At Phelan Petty, we’ve successfully handled cases involving a wide variety of products. We’ve gone up against major corporations and won for our clients because we have the resources, experience, and connections with world-class experts needed to handle the most complex product liability cases.
