Product Liability

We have developed expertise in the defense of manufacturers and distributors of industrial equipment, control applications, commercial equipment, power tools, and a wide variety of products that can be involved in workplace injuries.

We also defend cases for manufacturers and insurance companies specializing in coverage for the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. Our cases have addressed research and investigation of FDA requirements and regulations, including product applications, compliance, and submission requirements. We have lectured to individual companies on risk management and regulatory issues.

In handling the defense of these companies, we assist in product and FDA investigation and compliance, and ultimately coordinate comprehensive settlements.

Our attorneys have defended cases involving heart and other prosthetic implants, hospital equipment, exploding glass syringes, allegedly defective dental burrs, ventilator equipment, and IV equipment, as well as numerous medical malpractice cases in which the product utilized by the hospital, clinic, or surgeon was allegedly defective. Our firm’s experience extends to tainted food cases and prescription drug litigation involving FDA compliance and Federal preemption issues.
