Consumers purchase and use products with the reasonable expectation that the products will be safe to use. They assume that products found on store shelves, ordered at the pharmacy, and used to construct their homes will not cause harm. Product recalls occur when the safety of these products is questioned. Consumers start to make the connection between using the product or exposure to the product (such as in lead paint, or asbestos cases) and a medical problem or injury that has occurred.
At the Charbonnet Law Firm, our New Orleans and Metairie defective product attorneys offer experienced help in the complicated and oftentimes technical area of product liability law. If you believe you have been injured by or have become sick because of a defective product or drug — such as defective Chinese drywall, the anti-acid reflux drug Reglan or any other type of product — call us at 504-888-2227 to arrange a free initial consultation.
Manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors and vendors are responsible for introducing products into the marketplace that are safe. If one, some or all of these parties produce products that are dangerous or defective, they can be held liable for injuries and wrongful death that occur as a result. Product recalls, including drug recalls, may take place after it has been found that the product or drug is dangerous to consumers.
Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of product liability law. We know how to identify the responsible party or parties and hold them accountable for their negligence. We seek fair and full compensation for clients who have been injured in products found at home, at work, in schools, purchased at the pharmacy and found in many other areas of life.
