How Can a Scott Product Liability Lawyer Help You?
Like most states, Louisiana has laws that are designed to protect consumers from faulty products. Unfortunately, some manufacturers or retailers don’t adhere to those laws, and their products cause harm to consumers as a result. The reality is that even if you’re hurt by a defective product from a negligent manufacturer, holding them accountable may not be so straightforward without a lawyer.
We Can Fight For You Against Huge Companies
Most manufacturers and retailers have legal teams that get paid to shield them from financial accountability in a product liability case. Our Scott product liability attorneys have experience going up against corporations and their legal teams. Not only do we have experience fighting them, but we also have a track record of results.

Our attorneys can interview witnesses and subpoena records as part of a comprehensive effort to find evidence that proves liability. Once that’s done, we can negotiate with them directly for an acceptable settlement that covers both your economic and non-economic damages. We’ll make sure all of your case-related paperwork is properly filed, and if necessary, we will fight for you in court.
We’ll Keep You Informed on the Progress of Your Case

What Are the Damages in a Scott Product Liability Case?
Product liability cases are considered “personal injury” in Louisiana. That means you’re allowed to demand both economic and non-economic damages from the negligent party. Economic damages are exactly what they sound like: compensation for any financial losses you’ve experienced because of the faulty product. Examples of economic damages include:
- Medical care (e.g., post-accident treatment, continuing medical care)
- Lost income-reimbursement for any wages or income you lost while recovering
- Reimbursement for the cost of repairing or replacing any property that was damaged by the faulty product (e.g., renovating your kitchen after a faulty appliance caused a fire)
On the other side of the spectrum, you have the pain and suffering, or mental stress brought about by bad experiences with faulty products. Paying your medical bills isn’t enough when you also endured extreme physical pain or mental anguish. So, we can also demand compensation for the pain you endured or the suffering it caused.
Calculating non-economic damages is something our product liability lawyer or another member of our team can help you with. If Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers takes your case, we will make a damage demand that is representative of your personal and financial suffering.

What Kinds of Products Can You File a Product Liability Case For?
Although it isn’t a pleasant thing to think about, every consumer product has the potential to cause harm. That’s why companies and retailers are required to adhere to safety standards and minimize the potential risks of their product. With that said, some products more commonly appear in product liability cases. They include the following:
- Prescription medications
- Over-the-counter medications
- Children’s toys
- Automobiles and Automobile components
- Medical products such as implants and joint replacements
- Home appliances
- Electric or battery-powered tools

What Determines a Manufacturer’s Responsibility in a Product Liability Case?
It’s important to be able to demonstrate that the harm you suffered is because the product falls into one of the following three categories:
- Design defects
- Manufacturing defects
- Inadequate warnings, advisories, or instructions
A product with design defects has a flaw in its design that makes it dangerous to use. Manufacturing defects are flaws in the materials or fabrication methods of a product that cause it to fail and harm people. Inadequate warnings apply to products that don’t fully advise of the dangers associated with using the product. If any of these deficiencies caused your injury, you may have a product liability case.
