Product Liability

Product designers, manufacturers, marketers, sellers and distributors all have a legal responsibility to ensure that the products they put on the market — from tiny prescription pills to huge construction cranes — are safe to use or clearly demarcate their potential for danger. This category can include cases involving automobiles, industrial manufacturing equipment, home heaters, pharmaceuticals and medical devices. When a product causes harm because of an alleged or actual defect or misrepresentation, a company may be, or alleged to be, legally responsible for damages. Defending the manufacturer and its design decisions, or representing injured individuals in products liability lawsuits is an important part of our practice. Our attorneys have helped clients defend against claims, as well as recover compensation for injuries caused by a variety of dangerous products.
