Product Liability Litigation in Louisiana

Each week we purchase products we believe are safe, and which usually are, but we probably all have products in our homes that present dangers we haven’t considered, but which are very real. Consider that all of the following types of products were once considered safe by consumers but proven to be very dangerous:

Automobiles with fuel tanks inappropriately located in a place prone to explosion during a crash;

  • Baby cribs that present choking hazards, causing strangulation of infants;
  • Swimming pool drains with improper drainage covers, causing drowning and severe injury to children;
  • Flammable clothing, causing burns and deaths;
  • Flammable aerosol party favors, causing burns and death;
  • Children’s toys that present choking hazards for children;
  • Toys for use in the yard that produced injury and death in children;
  • 3-wheelers that were prone to roll over and injure and kill their users;
  • Automobiles with roof designs that were prone to crushing during car wrecks;
  • Countless different medications that cause severe injury and sometimes death;
  • Automobiles with airbags that would not deploy as designed, causing injury and death; and
  • Automobile tires that fail under normal conditions, causing vehicles to lose control, roll over, and wreck.

This list could go on and on. The reality is that an unending profit motive exists for large corporations to bring products to market as quickly as possible. This inevitably leads to products being placed on the market that are unsafe. There are very specific laws that pertain to those injured as a result of defective products. It is important that you find a lawyer familiar with those laws.
