The Louisiana Product Liability Act

The Louisiana Product Liability Act imposes liability on product manufacturers for injuries arising from unreasonably dangerous products attributed to:

  • Flawed design
  • Defective manufacturing
  • Insufficient warnings
  • Manufacturer’s non-compliance with stated warranties

For a successful product liability claim, the injured party must establish that they were using the product according to its intended purpose. This underscores the importance of demonstrating proper usage when pursuing a product liability suit.

The Common Product Liability Theories

Several product liability theories provide a legal framework for pursuing claims against manufacturers, including:

  • Manufacturing defect: Unintended flaws stemming from the manufacturing process characterize a manufacturing defect. This issue arises when a product is negligently crafted and subsequently sold with an unplanned defect.
  • Design defect: Proof of a product’s inherent danger in its design is essential to establish a design defect. This requires presenting evidence that an alternative design, safer and economically practical, exists. The alternative design must serve the same purpose as the original.
  • Failure to warn: Designers, manufacturers, distributors, and sellers bear the responsibility of adequately cautioning consumers about potential product risks. This involves clear labeling and comprehensive usage instructions. A failure to warn claim arises when injuries result from insufficient warnings about a product’s dangers.
  • Failure to comply with an express warranty: This claim arises when a manufacturer issues an express warranty that encourages consumer product use, only for the warranty to be proven false later on. It becomes relevant when a consumer relies on a warranty that turns out to be inaccurate, resulting in harm.

In recent times, an array of products has emerged as significant threats to consumer safety. Instances of manufacturers recalling children’s toys and baby products due to unexpected injuries to children have become alarmingly frequent. Moreover, household items such as flammable mattresses and heated blankets have been responsible for causing serious harm to consumers. Notably, a surge in medical equipment injuries and defects has been observed.

In the face of this broad spectrum of defective products, manufacturers must be held accountable for their negligence. The process of substantiating a product liability claim demands experience. Manufacturers, investing significantly in defending against product liability suits, often resist settlement. A seasoned products liability attorney can help safeguard your legal rights and formulate effective strategies for pursuing compensation.

Our attorneys are dedicated to seeking fair compensation for our clients, including medical expenses, lost wages, and the emotional toll of pain and suffering. In handling the challenges of defective product cases,.

Steps to Take After a Defective Product Injury

In the aftermath of a defective product injury, taking the right steps is critical for preserving your ability to pursue a claim. Here’s a guide on what to do:

  • Do not discard or tinker: Resist the urge to throw away or attempt to fix the malfunctioning product. Such actions could potentially harm your chances of pursuing a claim later. Instead, unplug electronic devices, remove batteries from battery-operated items, and securely store the defective product until you can proceed with your claim.
  • Seek medical attention: Always prioritize seeking medical attention for injuries resulting from a defective product. Prompt and thorough medical care not only ensures your well-being but also establishes a record of your injuries and treatments.
