Product Liability

Product liability exposure for manufacturers and retailers affects risk management, insurance coverage, brand image and reputation, financial reporting, future corporate transactions, and business relationships. Our defense and counseling of original equipment manufacturers, completed product manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, installers, and brokers in all facets of product liability claims are tailored to our clients’ specific products, business goals, and litigation resolution philosophies.

Our attorneys bring specific knowledge from various industries to product liability defense. We represent clients in cases involving small appliances, machinery and large scale equipment manufacturers, and food containers and defend medical device designers and developers, particularly against claims of personal injury or wrongful death. We have handled voluntary and involuntary Consumer Product Safety Commission recalls, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration-regulated recalls, United States Coast Guard Boating Safety Division recalls, non-regulated voluntary recalls, and post-sale service bulletin negligence cases.
