We often hear or read stories about unsafe or defective products that have led to injuries. Thousands of these cases go through the federal and state courts each year, and the question always comes down to who is responsible. Often it is a manufacturing defect where they knew a product was faulty, but the company failed to act responsibly by informing the consumers or changing the design.
Charles Elliott has handled many of these cases in his more than two decades as a practicing lawyer. He has a proven track record of success working with clients who have suffered a severe injury or wrongful death, gaining the justice and the compensation that they and their families deserve. As with other personal injury claims, we hire experts who will help us build a strong case for the best possible outcome with the maximum compensation.
Common Examples Of Products Liability
Consumers have a right to products that are relatively safe when used properly. These include:
Children’s toys, cribs and clothing
Motorized vehicles as well as their parts
Medical devices as well as prescription and over-the-counter drugs
Home appliances and electronics
Not all consumer products are completely safe even when used properly, but the manufacturer still has the obligation to place a warning message on the packaging to warn customers of the potential dangers. It is also worth noting that Louisiana law has a one-year statute of limitation for making a claim after the initial injury.
