Our products liability practice includes any case of injury, catastrophic injury or wrongful death caused by a defective or dangerous product. Many states, including Louisiana, have special laws that cover products liability claims. We have over 100 years of combined experience and expertise in handling these claims.
While products are generally thought of as tangible personal property like tractors, smoke detectors, lawn mowers, car seats, seat belts, baby beds, toys, kitchen appliances, grooming appliances-hair dryers, curling irons, electric shavers, other electrical appliances or power tools, tires, and automobiles, they also include such things as defective or dangerous drugs or medical devices, like pacemakers, hip prosthetics, pain killers and anti-depressants. Any or all of these may be defective or dangerous products that can cause serious injury or death.
An experienced and knowledgeable litigator can make the difference in proving that a dangerous product was the cause of your injuries and obtaining fair and adequate compensation for your past, present and future physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of income, medical expenses, and disability and disfigurement. We believe in producing results for our clients. We pride ourselves on our honesty, integrity, professionalism, attention to detail, responsiveness to our clients, ability to provide superior written work to the court and ability to serve as litigators in the courtroom to obtain the most successful outcome for our clients.
