Defective Product Attorney in Alexandria
When you purchase a product, you are due certain rights and expectations related to that product. First and foremost, you are entitled to be safe while using it. The company must ensure it is safe through thorough inspections and multiple safety tests. Despite this, defective products still find their way to the market and can cause more harm than simply breaking the trust of the consumer; they can often lead to serious injuries or even death. Gordon Mckernan Injury Attorneys has a team of product liability lawyers that are committed to protecting the rights of Louisiana families across the state, including Alexandria.
Learning About Product Recalls
When a product is deemed to be potentially hazardous to the public or has already harmed people, it should be recalled from the market. Recalls occur in a wide range of industries and include products such as prescription medications, heating and cooling elements, medical devices, baby beds, children’s toys and pajamas, car parts and much more. The skilled attorneys at Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys are dedicated to protecting the public against the careless acts of manufacturers that result in the distribution of defective or poorly labeled products.
There are a number of reasons a product could be labeled as dangerous or defective. Dangerous defects can occur in the design of an individual unit or the entire line of a manufacturer’s product. Furthermore, a manufacturer may be deemed negligent if appropriate warning labels are not present to properly warn the consumer. Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys in Alexandria has successfully handled product recall lawsuits to the tune of millions of dollars in compensation in damages to our clients. We will stand up to the manufacturers who are negligent or careless in the production of faulty chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food products, and other household items.
When to Consider a Product Liability Attorney
While unforeseeable factors can contribute to a product defect, if a manufacturer does not recall their product despite knowing that it could harm its users, they should be held liable. Unfortunately, a recall is not the only evidence that a product has a manufacturing defect.
