Defective Product Attorney in Louisiana
When you purchase a product, you have certain rights and expectations as a consumer. The most basic right you have is to be safe while using the purchased item. It is the responsibility of the developers of products to ensure that they have been rigorously tested and pass numerous safety inspections. Unfortunately, defective products can cause more harm than just breaking your trust. Defective products can cause injury and in the most serious cases, death. The product liability lawyers at Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of Louisiana families across Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Alexandria, Shreveport, Ascension, Livingston, Zachary, Hammond, Lake Charles, and Monroe.
Learning About Product Recalls
Products become recalled when they have been deemed potentially hazardous to the public or have already harmed people. Recalls have been issued for numerous things including prescription medications, medical devices, children’s toys and pajamas, car parts, baby beds, heating and cooling elements and many other products. The experienced team at Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys is dedicated to protecting the public from the careless or negligent acts of manufacturers that have produced and distributed defective or mislabeled products.
There are many reasons a product may be considered dangerous or defective. The design of the product could be faulty, or there could be a manufacturer defect which causes the entire line to be deemed hazardous. Additionally, a manufacturer may be negligent if appropriate warning labels are not present. Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys have a successful track record of handling product recall lawsuits, recovering millions in damages for our clients against negligent or careless manufacturers of faulty chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food products and other household items.
When to Consider a Product Liability Attorney
While there may be unforeseeable factors that contribute to a product defect, if a manufacturer is knowledgeable of a problem with their product or the possibility of potential harm, they should be held liable. Unfortunately, a product recall is not the only evidence of a manufacturing defect.
