Product Liability Defense
Our product liability practice has included product manufacturers, sellers, distributors and their insurers with products in numerous areas, including construction equipment, heavy machinery, medications and consumer goods. We have handled repetitive stress injuries and latex glove claims. We have tried cases involving electrical wire and cable. As in all our practice areas, our involvement and expertise extends to the insurance coverage and appellate aspects of the cases we are retained to handle.
As an example of our product liability practice, in Bloom v. Promaxima Mfg. Co. (O5-CV-6735 WDNY February 2010), we obtained a defense jury verdict for the manufacturer of exercise equipment which the plaintiff had alleged was defective and had caused his significant injuries, which included paraplegia.
