Clark Hill’s Product Liability attorneys represent clients involved in product liability cases and related issues on national, regional, and local levels. When faced with potential exposure from product liability litigation, clients rely on our full understanding of the issues involved in each case as we develop a responsive strategy to accomplish their goals.
Our Product Liability attorneys craft creative motion practices, settlement strategies, strategic appeals, and trial strategies for our clients involved in product liability matters. Whether the matter is a single case on the state level or requires a national coordination of discovery and development of national trial teams, we pursue unique alternative dispute resolutions and other creative approaches to settle cases. These include summary jury trials, mediations, facilitation, case evaluation, formal and informal arbitrations, and other techniques.
We work with corporations and companies of all sizes and on projects of several types including, by way of example, manufacturers involved in the following:
- Air Rifles
- Agricultural Equipment
- Chemical Solvents & Plastics
- Construction Equipment
- Consumer Products
- Food Products
- Industrial Equipment
- Material Handling Equipment
- Medical Devices
- Personal Computers
- Tobacco Products
- Treestand & Hunting Products
- Trucks and Tractor Trailers
- Warranty Litigation
To prevent product liability claims, we guide clients through recall and/or retrofit campaigns and help them create warning labels, operators manuals, disclaimers, indemnity agreements, and provide support during insurance coverage issues. In crisis management situations, our product liability attorneys assist clients when they need to address issues involving a product they design, manufacture, or distribute. It is then that our innovation, work ethic, creativity, and knowledge of the law can assist in building a management strategy based on sound legal principles.
We give serious attention to litigation cost factors. Our litigators work closely with clients to ensure that cases are staffed with the best-qualified attorneys and that the client receives the highest quality effective legal services at a competitive cost.
Our product liability experience is nationwide, having tried cases to verdicts in 13 states. Decisions of cases tried by our attorneys have been published in the Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Circuit Courts of Appeals, among others.
Several of our attorneys are also members of prestigious professional organizations such as the American College of Trial Lawyers, American Board of Trial Advocates, International Association of Defense Counsel, Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel, and the Product Liability Advisory Council, and have been invited faculty members at IADC’s Trial Academy and the ABA TIPS Trial Academy.
