Experienced Louisiana Product Liability Attorneys
You reasonably assume the products you use will not harm you. When products do injure you, you may have a right to compensation. A dedicated products liability firm, Guste, Barnett, Schlesinger, Henderson & Alpaugh, L.L.P. can help you recover the damages you are entitled to.
Statute of limitations
Consult an attorney as soon as you have been injured by a product. By immediately investigating your claim, your attorneys can preserve crucial evidence that can help you prove your case. In addition, Louisiana law states that you must file your claim within one year from the time the injury was or should have been discovered. If you miss the statutory deadline, you lose your right to recover compensation for your injuries.
Strict liability standard
Louisiana law recognizes consumers’ rights to purchase and use products with the expectation that they are safe. Through the strict liability doctrine, our attorneys can recover compensation from a manufacturer of an unreasonably dangerous product without proving the company acted negligently. Through methodical discovery techniques, our attorneys seek to establish that a defect in the product caused your injuries.
Resources to defend your rights
We have the resources and skills to defend your rights against large companies. With assistance from qualified medical professionals, our attorneys thoroughly investigate each case to plan the most effective strategy. Because we believe all injured people have the right to competent representation, we accept cases on contingency basis, meaning you pay nothing until we win your case.
