What Damages Can I Request in an Arnaudville Product Liability Claim?
Depending on the type of consumer product you used, your injury may be minor or severe. Regardless of the type of injury, medical treatment might take money out of your pocket. As a victim of negligence, you shouldn’t have to continue to bear these out-of-pocket costs.
Our injury lawyers can fight to recover compensation for all the losses you experience as a result of your injury. Some of these damages include:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental/emotional pain and suffering
- Medical bills
- Bills for ongoing care, such as physical therapy
- Damaged or destroyed property
- Lost wages
- Loss of consortium
Whether your loss is financial, emotional, or physical, you deserve to be compensated. If you’re unsure if your losses fit into any of these categories or what qualifies as pain and suffering, you can talk with a member of our team. We can help you assess the ways this injury has affected your life.
Wrongful Death Damages
Furthermore, if you lost a loved one due to a defective or dangerous product, we hope you’ll accept our heartfelt condolences. Losing someone important to you because of another’s carelessness can make you feel hopeless. We hope you’ll let our wrongful death lawyers help restore your hope and give you financial peace so you can grieve.
We can help you fight for compensation for these wrongful death damages:
- Funeral expenses
- Medical bills accrued by your loved one before passing
- Loss of your loved one’s financial benefits
- Loss of your loved one’s domestic support
- Your pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
Financial compensation won’t right the wrongs that caused your loss; however, it can decrease your list of worries, so you can focus on what really matters.

Who Is Liable for My Damages in My Arnaudville Product Liability Case?
According to industry guidelines, Louisiana law, and federal law, consumer goods companies are responsible for making sure their products can be used safely, and these companies may be liable whenever one of their products harms a customer. In your case, the consumer goods company responsible for your injuries may be a:
- Product designer

Negligence in Product Liability Cases
The company responsible for your injuries may have been negligent in any of the following ways:

Strict Liability in Louisiana Product Liability Cases
In Louisiana, a company does not necessarily have to be proven negligent in order to be held liable for harm. A company can still be held liable if it can be shown that it did not exercise reasonable care to detect a hazard. This is known as strict liability.
If a company product caused you any harm, you may be eligible for compensation through a strict liability claim. Our lawyers would only have to show:
- The company designed, engineered, or distributed the product
- You received the product in a dangerous or defective condition
- You did not alter the product’s condition
- Your injuries resulted from using the product

How do You Settle a Product Liability Claim?
It’s difficult to negotiate with a large insurance company, like the insurer of a product marketer. Additionally, it can be difficult to deal with an insurer’s tactics, such as devaluing certain damages, like pain and suffering.
An Arnaudville product liability lawyer from our firm can deal with the insurer and negotiate your settlement for you. Your lawyer would build a strong case by:
- Using medical documentation to attest to the seriousness of your injuries
- Enlisting the help of expert witnesses like your primary care physician
- Digging up product blueprints or other evidence that proves negligence
- Tracking and fulfilling filing deadlines and requirements
- Representing you in court proceedings
- Handling all communication
You’ve got enough to deal with after your injury. Our lawyers can build and resolve your case while protecting you from the tactics of these large companies.

In Arnaudville and the rest of Louisiana, the filing deadline for product liability and strict liability lawsuits is one year from the date of an incident, according to CC Art. 3492.
