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.

If you were to be involved in an accident that occurred offshore in Lousiana jurisdiction due to the negligence of other members of your crew, or of your captain, you would probably soon be faced with an excess of jargon. Some of these words are common, but they take on a specific meaning in the context of the Jones Act.

The dangers of portable generators

Louisiana is no stranger to bad weather, and when destructive wind and storms strike the state, sometimes the electricity may go out for prolonged periods of time. Many state residents possess a portable generator on hand for such scenarios. However, if used improperly, portable generators present serious safety risks. Understanding how portable generators operate is crucial to safeguarding a home and family from life-threatening dangers.

3 common anesthesia errors

Going under the knife can be stressful and emotionally taxing, but it can prove even ore so if you or one of your Louisiana loved ones also has to undergo treatment using anesthesia.

Scott & Associates, we understand that serious hardship often results from anesthesia mistakes, and we have helped many victims of anesthesia errors and their families pursue appropriate recourse.
