Tangipahoa Parish Product Liability Attorneys
Your Legal Advocates After a Product Causes You Harm
Consumers should be able to assume that the products they purchase are safe for regular use. They are also extended the freedom to assume that products will be safe even when misused, at least to a certain extent. It is the manufacturer’s responsibility to ensure that nothing hits the shelves that could cause undue harm to innocent consumers.
To this end, if you have been harmed by a consumer product, you have the right to file a product liability claim to seek fair compensation. At Anderson Boutwell Traylor, our Louisiana personal injury lawyers have been upholding the rights of the wrongfully injured for years – 60+ combined years of experience, to be more precise. Call us at 985.796.2245 if you would like to see what we can do for you and your product liability case.
Dangerous Products on the Marketplace
The idea of purchasing and using a product that is inherently dangerous and not knowing it is a frightful prospect. The unfortunate reality is that defective and hazardous products are all around us, causing injuries every day. Some incidents may be considerably minor and others pose life-threatening situations. No matter the consequences, a lawsuit should follow to help take the product off the market and teach the manufacturer that their standards must be raised.
Some dangerously defective products include:
- Airbags (Takata airbags)
- Talcum powder (J&J talc powder)
Our Tangipahoa Parish personal injury attorneys can assist you with any sort of product liability claim. Currently, we are looking into talcum powder lawsuits, as the information regarding the dangers of talc powder use – it has been shown to cause ovarian cancer over time – is recently emerging. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are experiencing serious health issues and have used Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder or other similar products for feminine hygiene.
Allow Us to Handle Your Product Liability Claim
There are two different ways a product may become defective or dangerous:
- Design: Certain products are never safe enough to be sold to others, and yet they are marketed anyway. This is known as “dangerous by design” and can be a clear indicator of manufacturing negligence.
- Manufacturing: There are many cases where a product is safe in the research and development stage but something goes wrong while it is actually being produced. Low standards in the workshop or factory can cause manufacturing defects to turn a perfectly safe product into a real danger.
Understanding what sort of defect caused your product to become harmful will be important for your case. Allow our team of Louisiana product liability attorneys to work with you to determine the details of your accident. With our help you may be able to receive compensation that pays for medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and much more.
