You could have a product liability claim if a purchased product hurts you. In cases of product liability, many parties could be held responsible for your injuries. In Louisiana, the law is on your side when a company puts profits over safety. There are regulations in place that protect consumers from hazardous products. In fact, by holding the company accountable, your voice could help remove an item from shelves, saving others from potential injury.
An Iota product liability attorney can help. We can hold the responsible parties to account for your injuries and help you pursue a fair settlement. Our law firm has successfully handled many product liability cases and is ready to fight for compensation to cover your damages.
Recoverable Damages in a Product Liability Case
If you bought a product, used it as intended, and it still caused you serious injury, you’re not alone. It happens more often than expected. Companies must ensure their products are safe. If your injuries are severe, you may face lost income and medical bills. We can pursue compensation for those damages together.
Types of Recoverable Damages
Louisiana allows injured victims to collect economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages include your financial losses like lost pay and medical bills. The state also allows victims to collect non-economic damages, which can include items like mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering. These can contribute a great deal to your settlement amount.

Can I Afford a Product Liability Lawyer?
We understand that unexpected injuries come with all sorts of unexpected bills. When you’re injured, lose income, and face an unknown future, you don’t want yet another upfront financial responsibility. This is why we offer a contingency arrangement to manage the legal fees associated with representing your claim.
A contingency arrangement is a convenient payment exchange. If we accept your case, we offer to take care of everything needed, from filing your claim to closing your settlement. There is no risk to you because you don’t owe anything if we are not successful. If we win or obtain a payment on your behalf, you agree to pay a small percentage of your compensation to cover your legal fees.
We also offer a free consultation to help you better understand your legal options. One of our legal representatives will listen to your story, discuss your case, review the information, and determine whether you have a winnable claim. If so, we can explain all your legal options, allowing you to make the best decision for your circumstances.
How Do I Determine if I Have Grounds for a Product Liability Case?
We can help you determine if you have a relevant claim. The court can examine some basics to determine whether the product is liable for your injuries. In Louisiana, the state has strict liability expectations for products sold to the public. To determine the viability of your claim, some basics that will be considered include
- Whether the accident falls under the strict liability regulations
- Whether you were using the product as intended
- Whether there was negligence on behalf of the manufacturer or retailer
- Whether the product could be improved with additional safety features
- Who is liable (i.e., manufacturer, retailer, shipping company, etc.)
How Long Do I Have to File My Product Liability Lawsuit?
Louisiana Civil Code § 3492 details the state’s statute of limitations. It limits the amount of time an individual has to file their claim in specific types of civil litigation. The starting date is either the date of the accident or the date you discovered your injury. For a product liability claim, the time is generally one year.
Types of Product Liability Lawsuits
Regardless of what product caused your injury, product liability lawsuits generally fall into several categories. A product may fulfill more than one type, and your attorney will bring this up as a point of failure on the product.
- Breach of warranty or poor information on the potential dangers
- A defect from the manufacturer
- A problem with the overall design of the product
