Defective Product Attorney in Lafayette
You assume certain rights and expectations as a consumer when you choose to buy a product. The most fundamental right you have with a purchased item is to be safe while using it. It is the company’s responsibility to ensure their product is safe through extensive tests and multiple inspections. Sadly, defective products still make it to the market and sometimes cause more harm than simply breaking your trust — they can lead to serious injuries or even death in severe cases. The product liability lawyers at Gordon Mckernan Injury Attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of Louisiana families across the state, including Lafayette.
Learning About Product Recalls
A product is recalled when it is deemed that it is potentially dangerous to the public or has already harmed people. Recalls range across nearly every industry and include things such as children’s toys and pajamas, car parts, baby beds, prescription medications, medical devices, heating, and cooling elements, among many others. The experienced attorneys at Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys are committed to defending the public against careless or negligent acts of manufacturers that have resulted in the distribution of defective or mislabeled products.
A product can be declared defective for many reasons. A faulty design can lead to the entire line being hazardous, and a manufacturer may be negligent if there are not appropriate warning labels on the product. Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys in Lafayette has a history of success with handling product recall lawsuits, evidenced by the millions in damages won 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 it is possible that unforeseeable factors contribute to a product defect, if a manufacturer does not recall their product with the knowledge that it could cause harm to its users, they should be held liable. Unfortunately, a recall is not the sole evidence that there has been a manufacturing defect.
