Thinking beyond class action for product liability
Like many Louisiana residents, you probably have a good grasp of the concept of product liability. FindLaw’s review of the General Motors ignition switch defect might interest you if you have only a passing familiarity with these cases; it is one of the most publicized class-action faulty-products cases in recent history. However, you might not realize how these product safety laws could affect you personally.
Here at Jacqueline A. Scott & Associates, we often see clients come in with injuries that they do not even realize might be the result of a malfunctioning or otherwise faulty product. For example, we might be able to retrieve damages from the maker of a poorly manufactured tire that contributed to our client’s injury.
If you are like many Louisiana residents, you think of personal injury lawsuits as contests between two individuals, or between an injured person and a single company. While this might be the case in certain situations, it is also common for our clients to seek compensation from every party whose negligence contributed to the injury in question.
To that end, we are accustomed to viewing each case from an objective perspective. We often start by performing research to discover whether equipment or products added to the severity of the injury or allowed it to happen in the first place. We find that one of the ways our clients are able to obtain the maximum compensation available and secure their future is to pursue every responsible party.
Some of the car accidents, medical problems and workplace injury cases we handle turn out to be simple. However, we find that it is often beneficial to our clients for us to investigate the possibility that there is something or someone responsible beyond the obvious cause of the incident.
