New Orleans Product Liability
Manufacturers can be held accountable when their products are shown to be unreasonably dangerous or defective. Other parties in the chain can also be held responsible for injuries, such as distributors and retailers of unsafe products or doctors who implant defective medical devices.
Stephen Rue & Associates Law Firm in New Orleans, Kenner and Gretna, Louisiana, has the resources and proven capacity for product liability litigation. We have brought successful lawsuits against manufacturers and sellers, as well as companion suits against physicians and hospitals for malpractice. Our goal is full compensation for the medical, financial and personal aftermath of bad products.
Metairie Defective Product Lawyers
Our law firm has served injury victims in New Orleans and throughout Louisiana for more than 26 years. We can evaluate your possible product liability claims for injuries caused by:

- Medical products such as transvaginal mesh or metal on metal hip or knee replacements
- Vehicle defects in motor vehicle accidents
- Defective design in place crashes
- Other products that pose a threat to consumer safety (adults or children)
Establishing Product Liability
Because it would be prohibitively complex and expensive to prove that manufacturers knew of defects, it is only necessary to show that the product is dangerous when used in a reasonable and foreseeable way. Even then, it requires sophisticated representation to demonstrate a design defect, a manufacturing flaw or a failure to warn.
Stephen Rue & Associates Law Firm is willing to invest in experts who can inspect the product and attest to its inherent dangers. We aim for fair settlement, but Attorney Stephen Rue and his legal team are prepared to take any case to trial. We also handle serious medical malpractice litigation, including lawsuits against physicians for recommending medical devices with known defects or for negligence in surgical implantation of medical products.
