Our Approach to Product Liability
Manufacturers of products have the protection of the Louisiana Product Liability Act, LSA-R.S. 9:2800.51 et. seq. which sets forth the limited theories of liability for product defects causing injury in Louisiana. To prove liability, an attorney must show that the product is unreasonably dangerous in design, inadequate warning, non-conformity with an express warranty, or by construction and composition. The use of the product must be shown to be a reasonably anticipated use or misuse. In a design defect case, it is necessary to show that the product had a feasible alternative design that could have prevented the injuries. A product can have inherent defects that are not obvious. In many cases, in deciding liability, our courts and juries are asked to determine if the benefits of the product outweigh its risks.
A manufacturer will aggressively fight almost any individual product liability case because to lose that case may severely harm its pocket book and force that manufacturer to take a product out of commerce or devote significant dollars to change the manufacturing process or composition of its product.
