Defective and dangerous products can cause serious and catastrophic injuries. Dangerous toys can harm children, defective components in an automobile can kill.
Under the Louisiana Products Liability Act (LPLA), manufacturers are liable for products that are “unreasonably dangerous” in the following ways:
- in their construction or composition
- in their design
- if the manufacturer fails to provide sufficient warning of hazards
- if the product does not conform to an express manufacturer warranty
Injuries caused by defective products can affect more than just the victim. When a dangerous product causes a death or a serious, permanent injury, family members are impacted by their loved one’s pain, struggles, and medical treatment.
