Are you a Marrero resident dealing with injuries from using a faulty consumer product? You have the right to demand compensation from negligent companies when they make faulty or dangerous products. It’s an unfortunate reality that not all corporations prioritize consumer safety to the extent that they should. That’s why Louisiana law allows people like you to hold them financially accountable.
Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers is a personal injury law firm with a clear mission: to hold those who have harmed others accountable for their negligence. We pride ourselves on helping people get the justice, and the compensation, that they deserve. Our Louisiana personal injury attorneys have over 100 years of combined legal experience and have earned more than $200 million in verdicts and settlements for our clients. We can help you, too.
What Can Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers Do For Your Product Liability Case?
Proving liability against a manufacturing company or corporation can be a difficult thing for someone on their own. After all, the company isn’t going to just come out and admit they were wrong. In fact, they often do the opposite. Even if they offer you a settlement, it may have a clause releasing them from any further liability. More importantly, the compensation they offer may not reflect the full scope of the damages you suffered.
Our job as your representatives is to ensure that you are protected from bullying and manipulation by these brazen companies. To protect your right to compensation, we will negotiate for an amount that represents what you’ve lost. To build a strong case, we will also conduct our own investigation, hire expert witnesses, and fulfill legal requirements to give your case the best shot at a favorable resolution.

When Can a Company or Manufacturer Be Held Liable?
Companies, manufacturers, and sometimes even retailers, can be held liable when a faulty product they produce or sell harms the people who use it.
A Marrero product liability attorney can help you prove the company knew, or should have known, their product posed a safety risk to consumers. One way to do that is to prove the faulty product met one or more of the following criteria:
- Flawed design. When products are not designed to withstand normal use or have flaws that pose inherent danger to consumers, they have a design flaw.
- Poor manufacturing standards. This occurs when a product’s construction, or the materials used to make the product are of such poor quality (or are not the intended parts) that the product fails.
- Insufficient warning or instructions. This happens when a manufacturer or retailer fails to advise users about the potential risks associated with using their product or doesn’t give users complete instructions. It can also happen when manufacturers or retailers learn their product is defective but do not warn the public in a reasonable amount of time.
What Kind of Faulty Products Can Lead to Product Liability Cases?
Sadly, there is a long list of products or services that can harm consumers and lead to a product liability case. Below, you will find a short list of products that have led to product liability cases in the past:
- Car parts (e.g., tires, airbags)
- Medication (e.g. Zantac, Benicar, Januvia)
- Medical products (e.g., breast implants, replacement joints, pacemakers)
- Children’s toys
- Electric or battery powered tools
- Household appliances
Regardless of what product you were using when you got hurt, if you think the product was faulty, it may be a good idea to contact a product liability lawyer from our firm. Contrary to popular belief, you can demand damages for a faulty product even if there was no known recall or consumer warning issued about it.

What Kind of Damages Can You Demand in a Product Liability Case?
There are two different types of damages that you can demand in a product liability case. The first type is known as economic damages. This is reimbursement for the financial losses you suffered after being hurt by the product. Examples of economic damages include:
- Medical expenses, including the cost of immediate and long-term care
- Any damage to property, e.g. wrecked car after a faulty tire explodes
- Income you lost while recovering from your injuries
- Permanent loss of income or ability to work in your field
In addition to economic damages, you are allowed to demand non-economic damages. These are a monetary award given to victims of faulty products as compensation for the pain and suffering they experienced. In Louisiana, there is no cap on pain and suffering.
When you’re represented by a Marrero product liability attorney from Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers, helping you collect the economic and non-economic damages you deserve is our number one priority.
