Count on Cossé when defective products cause injuries.
Consumers have the right to assume that the products they buy are safe for use. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. There may be a defect in the way the product was designed, manufactured, or labeled that makes the product dangerous. If someone is injured due to a product defect, he or she has the right to file a product liability claim to recover compensation.
Product liability injuries can be caused by many everyday products, including toys, kitchen appliances, and beauty products. But the most dangerous defects occur in the automotive industry.
In Louisiana, there are two possible product liability claims involving motor vehicles. The first claim refers to a vehicle with an “unreasonably dangerous design,” which can lead to an injury or even wrongful death. The second, and more common type of claim, applies to an injury caused by an improperly manufactured vehicle, tire, or part, such as a defective air bag that causes injury.
If someone is injured due to a defective motor vehicle, he or she has the right to file a product liability claim to seek compensation for injuries, lost wages and more. In general, product liability cases are very complex, which is why working with an experienced attorney is essential. The lawyers at the Cossé Law Firm are just that.
