Defective Product Attorney in Shreveport
There are certain expectations and rights that are granted to consumers when they purchase a product, like being safe when using it. A company must submit its product through extensive testing and safety inspections to ensure it is safe for the market. Defective products still find their way into consumers’ hands, unfortunately, and often cause more harm than just breaking the trust of the buyer. Defective products can sometimes lead to serious injuries or even death. Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys has a skilled team of product liability lawyers dedicated to defending the rights of Louisiana families across the state, including Shreveport.
Learning About Product Recalls
A product should be recalled from the market when it has been deemed to be potentially hazardous to the public or has already caused harm. Recalls occur in a wide range of industries, including heating and cooling elements, medical devices, baby beds, children’s toys and pajamas, prescription medications, car parts, medical devices and more. The attorneys of Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys work to protect the public against the negligent acts of manufacturers that result in the distribution of defective or poorly labeled products.
The reasons a product could be labeled as being dangerous or defective are numerous. Hazardous defects occur both in the design of individual units and in the entire line of a manufacturer’s product. A manufacturer may be deemed negligent if appropriate warning labels are not implemented as well. Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys in Shreveport has successfully handled product recall lawsuits and won millions of dollars in damages for our clients. We are ready to take on 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
