How to Choose a Product Recalls Lawyer
Posted on Apr 25 , 2014
Most federal government regulations on the producers of potentially dangerous products are usually vague and offer practically no consequences for misconduct. The Gordon McKernan Law Firm can help Louisiana individuals prosecute these negligent manufacturers of inadequate products. If you or a loved one has been hurt by a defective product, this type of lawsuit is often the only recourse against the companies that manufacture these dangerous products. All consumer-based products can be considered defective, including automobiles, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and toys that remain dangerous when being used in the correct manner. Products may be considered dangerous for any number of reasons, including the ones listed below:
- The design of the product can be defective, making all of the products fashioned in this way dangerous, leading to a recall.
- Defects originating during the production process, normally affecting only a small number of products.
- If applicable product warnings are not visible.
