Injuries from consumer products happen all too frequently. While most companies do extensive safety testing and conform to government safety regulations, some accidents still occur. If you have injuries from a consumer product, you could pursue compensation to cover your costs.
A Henderson product liability lawyer can help. Our attorneys devote their entire careers to helping injured victims. We have extensive knowledge of the Louisiana regulations that can impact safety and can work diligently to prove the product caused your claim. We have had success in previous cases with poorly manufactured products, like winning $180,000 for a client who had been significantly injured in a car accident due to a defective tire.
Recoverable Damages in a Product Liability Suit
We can negotiate for a settlement that includes damages reflecting all of the losses you’ve incurred from the injury.
Will I Receive the Entire Settlement?
When we represent your claim, you will receive the entire settlement amount minus any payment arrangement for your legal fees. We offer a simple percentage agreement to cover your legal expenses so we can get started immediately without upfront costs.
What Are the Two Main Types of Recoverable Damages?
Louisiana allows you to claim both economic and non-economic losses. Economic losses have distinct financial amounts attached, such as medical bills and pay lost from time off work. Non-economic losses include the pain from the injuries you suffered. Your lawyer can put a price on these intangible losses and include them in your settlement during negotiations.
Common Damages in Product Liability Claims
- Hospital charges, prescriptions, and other medical costs
- Lost income
- Lost future earning potential
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life

How To Know if You Have a Valid Product Liability Case
To determine whether you have a valid case, your attorney and the courts can look at a few common factors:
- Whether you were using the product in its intended manner
- What types of warnings came with the product
- Who or what company was negligent
- Whether the injury was caused by a hazardous product or a defective product
Are There Time Limits for Filing Product Liability Claims?
Yes, there is a statute of limitations in Louisiana. Louisiana Civil Code § 3492 details time limits for personal injury claims. The two dates that apply include the date of the incident or the date of discovery of your injury. Injuries can take time to reveal themselves. Louisiana generally gives you one year from either date.
Several Common Types of Product Liability
A few common product liability cases exist, but this doesn’t limit your claim to any one type. A product can fail in several areas:
- Hazardous design
- Manufacturing defect
- Breach of warranty
- Lack of potential hazard warnings
