Dangerous Products

Since 2016, Didriksen, Saucier, Woods & Pichon, PLC, has held the highest single plaintiff jury verdict ever rendered in Louisiana, which was affirmed by the Louisiana Supreme Court and which was a products liability case. Under the law, products must safely fulfill their purpose. These consumer protections are at the core of what makes modern life fair when a product fails. If you have been injured due to a product not performing the way it was intended to, you may have grounds to pursue a products liability case.

Types Of Products Liabilities

There are three basic types of liabilities that a consumer may pursue if they are injured by a faulty product. If a product you have used failed in one of the following ways, call our New Orleans office for a free case evaluation:

  • Product was manufactured with defects: For example, a swing set that came out of the box with a cracked chain.
  • Product was defective due to design: For example, a model of SUV that is so top-heavy that it consistently rolls when making turns at over 35 miles per hour.
  • Product did not adequately provide warnings: For example, a cleaning product that burns unprotected skin, but the container gave no warnings.

Products liability claims vary widely. Our legal team will work with you and your specific circumstances to determine how to pursue your case.
