Louisiana consumers have every right to expect that the products they purchase and use will be safe and free of defects that can cause injuries, illnesses or even deaths. When these products fail, their manufacturer must be held accountable.

Our firm has handled many cases of product liability where we have successfully taken on negligent manufactures, thus forcing them to pay for the damages and injuries their products cause. Additionally, pursuing litigation against the manufacturers of defective and dangerous products forces them to focus on safety issues and design flaws to make their products safe for consumer use.
