New Orleans Product Liability
& Defective Products Attorney

When you purchase a product, you have certain expectations.

Why choose Kara Hadican Samuels & Associates

The most important expectation being that you can use that product for the purpose in which it was intended and that it will not harm you. That seems fair, right?

Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Every year, thousands of people are seriously injured by defective and/or dangerous products. Defective products are often made by large corporations, which means that you will almost always need an attorney’s help.

The companies that manufacture these defective products will have a team of their own lawyers ready to fight for them or even low-ball you with a minimal offer of settlement, so that they do not have to deal with a lawsuit.

Our attorneys work with experts to thoroughly analyze and investigate the product in question for defects. Our legal team devotes time reviewing blueprints, safety records, mechanics, design and other company records. We look at every angle possible to understand if the manufacturer, supplier, retailer or another party acted in a negligent manner.

With innovative insight and legal savvy, we can help you or your loved one secure a full financial recovery against all at-fault parties.

You need a resourceful, results-oriented attorney to battle the corporate defense lawyers

At Kara Samuels & Associates, our resources, knowledge, and collective litigation experience ensure that your case is carefully assessed and strongly presented, so that if your case has merit,  you receive maximum compensation for your suffering.

Product Liability Laws

There is an entire area of law to protect consumers like you. Product liability laws govern how products are designed, manufactured, marketed, sold and recalled.

In Louisiana, in order to recover compensation under the Louisiana Products Liability Act, the plaintiff has a tough burden of proof, and you need a competent attorney to handle your potential claim.

Louisiana precludes the recovery of punitive damages against manufacturers under the Louisiana Products Liability Act. However, an injured party may recover for a range of damages through a successful claim under the Louisiana Products Liability Act.
