Each year, unsafe or defective products lead to thousands of injuries to both children and adults. The set of laws responsible for determining who bears legal responsibility for these injuries are referred to as products liability laws.
At Bruno & Bruno, we have the resources and experience it takes to successfully pursue a products liability action. We have a proven track record of recovering compensation for our clients who suffered injury or wrongful death due to defective products.
Products manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure their products are safe and to alert consumers to any potential dangers of using their product. However, thousands of people are injured each year due to dangerous or defective products. Serious injuries or wrongful death can be caused by the products you or your loved ones use every day, including:
- Children's toys, clothing and cribs
- Food products
- Drugs and medical devices, including over-the-counter and prescription medications
- Appliances or electrical equipment
A product may be considered defective if it is reasonably dangerous, has a faulty design or was manufactured improperly. Additionally, if the product's packaging did not provide adequate warnings about the potential dangers of a product, it may be considered defective.
Our New Orleans defective products lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of your injuries and determine if your case is worth pursuing. We strive to help you recover the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries or your loved one's wrongful death.
