Virginia products liability law is essentially a set of laws, primarily including common law, that holds any party that is considered part of the chain of distribution of a defective product liable for any harm the product causes.

Depending on the circumstances, products liability claims can help injured victims recover a number of different types of damages for financial, physical and emotional harm suffered.
