Products Liability

Louisiana Product Liability Attorneys

Companies have a responsibility to design and manufacture safe products. Anyone who is injured because of a dangerous product should immediately speak to a lawyer about filing a product liability lawsuit.

At Tauzin & Lorio, APLC, we help injured individuals bring their claims against companies and make sure they are fairly compensated for their injuries. Our Louisiana product liability lawyers will meet with you free of charge to talk about your situation. If we take your case, we will do all work on a contingency basis, charging no attorneys fees until you win compensation.

What Is Product Liability?

"Product Liability" refers to the simple fact that if a company produces or distributes a dangerous, defective product, they are liable for any injuries that result. For example, we represented a client who was burned over 40 % of his body when a riding lawn mower burst into flames while he was filling it with gasoline. During the discovery the process, our expert was able to conclude that the gas tank was located too close to the exhaust muffler. The manufacturer was forced to change the design of its lawn mower so that no one else could be hurt the same way in the future.

Louisiana product liability lawyer, Kevin Tauzin, has an excellent track record of representing individuals who have been injured as a result of an unsafe product that was designed, manufactured, sold, and/or furnished by a person or company. Often, in product liability cases, clients initially come to us for help with an auto accident or other matter, without realizing how the design of the product contributed to their injuries.

Past Crashworthiness Cases

Many of our past cases have involved "crashworthiness," which measures how well a vehicle can protect people from serious injury during an accident. In one crashworthiness case handled by our lawyer, a seat belt defect caused many more serious injuries than would have occurred otherwise. Crashworthiness can involve anything from airbag deployment injury to a roof collapsing too easily.

Crashworthiness cases can even apply to equipment. For example, we handled a case involving a motorcycle helmet that broke upon impact.
