We Handle Defective Product Liability Claims

Due to his extensive experience in the medical malpractice field, our lead attorney, Tony Tramontana, focuses on defective medical products liability cases. Specifically, he handles claims involving:

Defective Drugs

Defective Devices or Products

A product includes almost any device, machine, or product that is defective under the LPLA. This includes anything from a large industrial machine at an aluminum plant, to a pressure cooker or an “instant pot” in your kitchen that explodes. Common product liability claims include: home appliances (pressure cookers, instant pots, boilers and fryers); Medications (defective medications, or over the counter medications that have been recalled due to labeling); medical devices (knee and hip prothesis, pacemakers, surgical devices); Children’s toys and furniture; Lawn Equipment (mowers, edges and string trimmers, and log splitters); Home Improvement tools (drills, power saws, electrical equipment); and auto parts (airbags, brakes, engine devices).

Damages You Can Recover in a Products Liability

The LPLA provides for certain types of financial recovery if you are successful in your claim:

  • Medical bills, to cover both immediate medical costs as well as potential future costs for long-term or permanent injuries
  • Rehabilitation costs, as well as transportation costs to doctor visits, to help you get back in prime form
  • Lost wages, based on your injuries and how much time you lost at work, as well as the potential for the loss of future income
  • Pain and suffering, for the emotional distress you have suffered due to your injuries, loss of enjoyment of life and more
  • Loss of consortium, for individuals who have lost loved ones and can no longer enjoy their company
