Products liability claims are complicated and expert intensive. Plaintiffs alleging injuries from defective products may claim injuries ranging from mild to catastrophic, including wrongful death. The key to understanding and successfully litigating a products liability claim is a solid grasp on the technical aspects of the claim. Our attorneys work closely with qualified experts in reviewing and defending a products liability claim. We understand the importance of ascertaining all the details of the alleged product defect and alleged injury, and placing the plaintiff’s allegations in the context of the applicable products liability law.
Our attorneys have experience in defending manufacturing and design defect claims, together with failure to warn and breach of warranty claims. From the very inception of the case, we will review plaintiff’s claims and work cooperatively with our client to devise a litigation strategy that meets the client’s goals and budgeting needs.
For many manufacturing and design defect claims, the case truly does depend on the expert witnesses.
