Lafayette Product Liability Lawyer

We are ready to serve you

Each and every day we use products we believe and trust to be safe and effective – from the medicines we take to the cars we drive. The state of Louisiana has a short and strict timeline for filing lawsuits regarding products liability. You need an expert on your side, who understands the process and the ins and outs of the Louisiana Products Liability Act. Our team has vast knowledge and experience involving general products liability.

Sadly, in many cases, the large corporations and manufacturers not only produced and marketed flawed products, they had knowledge of the dangers and did not properly warn consumers. We have the resources it takes to go against the biggest names in the industry and get innocent consumers the compensation they deserve.

I always wanted to be in a position to help people and I love the role being a lawyer allows to me to play” says Digger Earles. “I’ve always hated bullies and enjoy helping people combat bullies and large corporations.

TAKATA AIRBAG RECALL

The largest automotive recall in history centers on the defective Takata airbags found in millions of vehicles manufactured by Honda, BMW, Chrysler, Daimler Trucks, Ford, General Motors, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, and Toyota. The defect results in shrapnel-like metal shards and airbag components being propelled throughout the vehicle interior. When airbags are deployed, it frequently results in lacerations and blunt-force trauma that can cause injury or death. We are also handling Honda airbag cases with smaller injuries that normally would not qualify for claims under our usual review process, even an injury that does not appear to be permanent or life-threatening.

DEFECTIVE TIRES

Tire failure can result in a serious car crash and even a vehicle rollover accident, causing serious injury or death to vehicle occupants. Air, heat, and sunlight can cause the rubber in tires to break down. When a tire is defective, potentially serious problems like tread breakdown and blowouts can occur long before the tire would be expected to wear out. If the tire failure is the result of design or manufacturing defects, and the manufacturer is aware of the problem, they have an obligation to alert consumers to the potential danger.
