Compensation for injuries caused by defective work equipment

Working a job in an already hazardous environment is stressful enough. In addition, workers should never have to worry about whether the equipment required to complete the work is going to operate correctly, especially when their safety depends on it.

Can a fault in a product's design result in a compensable injury?

Products that are released into the stream of commerce are often scrutinized for safety at many levels before they make their way into the hands of New Orleans consumers. The strict review of safety that products are subjected to often catches problems before the products are released and have a chance to harm people. However, from time to time unsafe products slip through and when handled by unsuspecting consumers cause serious injuries due to their inherent defects.

Dangerous pharmaceutical drugs can cause injuries and illnesses

Over the last year, news about the pharmaceutical industry has made headlines. From stories about the skyrocketing prices of life-saving medications to developments in new medicinal treatments, New Orleans residents are able to glimpse into the world of the drug industry. While for the most part individuals who must take prescription medications benefit from their use of pharmaceuticals, there is a small portion of the population that suffers harm when taking medications developed by the drug industry.

Inadequate warnings can make products deadly

The modern world is replete with conveniences. For example, no longer do New Orleans residents have to wash their clothing by hand - they simply have to throw their shirts and pants into a washing machine with some soap and push a button to have their apparel scrubbed and rinsed as they engage in other activities. There are countless other examples of how consumer products have improved the quality and efficiency of humans' lives and countless ways that people have benefited from the goods they are able to purchase.

The role of warnings in a products liability case

Many of the products that Louisiana residents purchase may clearly display the dangers they pose to the consumers who plan to use them. For example, a power saw may display its sharp blade as a cutting danger to those who may encounter it. Potentially dangerous products, like power saws, generally must contain consumer safety warnings. And, this post will discuss some of the ways that deficient warnings on products may result in injuries and potential products liability litigation.

Defective car parts cause serious accidents and injuries

In the last few years, millions of Americans were affected by the recall of their vehicles due to defective airbags. The source of the defective car parts was a single product manufacturer, and the bad airbags ended up inside vehicles made by nearly 20 different automakers. In a crash, the defective airbags could explode and send metal shards into a vehicle, which in turn, could inflict life-threatening injuries on individuals already the victim of a vehicle accident.

Dangerous products can be on the shelves of supermarkets

Though differences in lifestyle will dictate what individuals prefer, all people have the same basic requirements to survive: food, shelter and access to basic services. When it comes to food though, a New Orleans resident may choose from a variety of products, both fresh and processed, that can serve their physiological needs, as well as satisfy their discriminating palettes.

Nearly 30,000 strollers are affected by a product recall

In the wake of the holiday season, many parents in Louisiana may take the opportunity to go for walks with their children. They put their child in a stroller and head out. Some disturbing news involving a product recall may prompt people to check the label on their stroller before using it this week.

Tests indicate rate of Takata air bag product malfunction

The news regarding defective air bags from Takata has grown so common that it is easy for Louisiana residents to become inured to it and perhaps miss important new revelations. Air bag inflators might not have been a significant concern when people purchased their automobiles, but given the number of people who have suffered serious injury and even death as a result of product malfunction of this defective auto part, it is imperative to keep track of new information that arises regarding how and why it happened to determine whether or not it is possible to pursue compensation in a legal filing.
