Experienced Louisiana Products Liability Lawyers Fighting for Your Rights
Every day, unknowing consumers fall victim to injuries caused by unsafe and hazardous products through no fault of their own. Common injuries caused by defective or unsafe products can range from minor burns or skin irritations to death. Louisiana law requires manufacturers of products to cautiously design and manufacture safe products and to properly warn consumers about dangerous uses.
Unfortunately, products that we as consumers use and rely on in our daily lives lack the adequate design or warnings to safeguard against devastating injury or loss. Injuries can arise from almost any type of defective product, ranging from common household items, such as baby toys, bedding, and cleaning products, to vehicle airbags, tires, and other components, and even prescription drugs or medical devices. Another common source of products-related injuries are products and equipment in the workplace, from office chairs to industrial forklifts.
Products liability cases can be difficult to prove, and the issues can be extremely complicated. It's not enough that the product caused your injury. Beyond that, you have to prove that the product was unreasonably dangerous in one of four ways:
1. Dangerous design
2. Dangerous composition
3. Lack of adequate warning
4. Breach of express warranty
Proving that the product is unreasonably dangerous often requires extensive testimony from reputable expert witnesses and a sound trial and litigation strategy. That is why you need competent, experienced, and aggressive legal representation in order to recover for your injuries.
Types of Injuries and Recoverable Damages in Products Liability Cases:
If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to recover the following types of monetary damages:
- Past and future medical bills
- Physical and mental pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Lost or diminished future earnings capacity
- Life care expenses
If you've been injured, your spouse or children may also be entitled to additional compensation for loss of consortium or loss of love and support.
