Product Liability

The firm has experience defending products in strict products liability actions. This defense includes defense of agricultural products, automobiles, and machinery as well as component parts causing significant fire loss or explosions.

In addition, the firm has substantial experience prosecuting products liability cross-complaints when those issues are at the heart of a loss on construction sites, the workplace or other significant injury producing events. Prosecution of products liability cross-complaints in the past have involved failure of chairs causing significant spinal injuries to pedi-spa units improperly designed such that they increase the risk of mycobacteria proliferation and exposure, and agricultural claims including feed and herbicide products.
