As a consumer, you count on the products you purchase to be as safe as possible. When there are manufacturing, design or warning defects in these items, you might suffer an injury. The product liability lawyer at Foley, Lamy & Jefferson is ready to help you pursue your claim for compensation.
Unsafe Products Shouldn’t Be Sold To The Public
Manufacturers and sellers have a duty to provide safe products to the public. There is no good reason to put anything that is unsafe out for sale unless the product is unavoidably unsafe and comes with proper warnings about the usage.

Product Liability Attorneys Can Help You Prove Your Claim
There are four types of cases that qualify for product liability claims in Louisiana. These include:
- Manufacturing defects: These have to do with things like shoddy workmanship or problems that are present due to the way the product was made.
- Design defects: These deal with the way the product was designed to work. Designers must ensure they are taking safety into account during this process.
- Warranty defects: These lead the consumer to use the product unsafely since the product doesn’t conform to the manufacturer’s warranty.
- Marketing defects: These have to do with a failure to warn consumers about the dangers of the product or how to use it safely.
