Determining Liability in a Defective Product Lawyer
When consumers get injured by defective products, the manufacturer may be held liable for damages (“sum of money the law imposes for a breach of some duty or violation of some right,” as defined by the Legal Information Institute). The injured party is often eligible for a monetary award or settlement that includes payment for both the economic and the noneconomic losses they incurred as a result of their injury.
In order to hold a manufacturer liable for injuries caused by one of their products, we often do not have to prove actual negligence. If the product itself—and not misuse of the product—is what caused the injury and the injured party had not modified the product in a material way from its original form at the time of the injury, then we have a good chance of holding the manufacturer liable.
The Ville Platte defective product lawyers at Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers can help you recover compensation for a wide variety of defective product injuries. Call us for help if you were injured using any of the following products:
When many people think of car accident injuries, they assume one or both drivers in the accident were to blame. But if the collision was caused by a defective vehicle component—such as faulty brakes or a stuck accelerator—the car manufacturer might also be a liable party. We can investigate your car accident and determine if a vehicle defect was a contributing factor.
If you were injured by an appliance in your home—such as a stove, oven, gas grill, generator, or anything else—we will bring in investigators to uncover the source of the accident and what type of defect caused it. We will show that you were using the product properly and for its intended purpose when the injury occurred.
Electronics like power tools can cause injuries involving consumer goods. Sometimes, batteries can ignite and cause house fires (either while charging, while the product is in use, or while the product is at rest). An electronic device may also malfunction during use and lead to various injuries. We will get to the bottom of your injury and hold the product manufacturer liable for damages. Call (337) 777-7777 to learn more from a Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers team member.
If your child was injured while playing with a toy, we can hold the manufacturer liable—even if the product came with warnings about the specific injury your child suffered.
Recreational vehicles are fun to ride but notorious for causing injuries. A defective product case involving a recreational vehicle can be difficult to pursue because with these products, there is often a fine line between use and misuse. That said, we have had substantial success taking on manufacturers of ATVs, jet skis, and other recreational vehicles for injuries they caused our clients.
Other Consumer Goods
The list of consumer goods capable of causing personal injury is way too long to publish in one piece. No matter what type of product you were using at the time of your injury, we want the chance to investigate what happened and to hold the manufacturer liable. We will get right to work gathering evidence and building a case. With Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers, there is never a fee until you get paid.
