Product Liability Litigation & Risk Avoidance

Summary

Manufacturers, sellers and distributors of products face litigation risks at every turn. If you are in the chain of product distribution of a product, you are a potential target to be hauled into courtrooms far and wide. The first line of defense is to avoid litigation through great engineering, stellar manufacturing processes, clear and effective warnings and wise counsel along the way to help you navigate the risks ahead of the curve. LLG can help because we’ve been litigating Product Liability cases for more than 30 years. In order to best avoid litigation risks, it helps to have lived in the world of the litigated aftermath of a product gone awry.  We can partner with you to brainstorm risks that may only get caught by a fresh set of eyes, and navigate the the thorny warnings labyrinth that manufacturers face every day.

In the unfortunate, yet seemingly inevitable event of lawsuits, LLG can help your company as well. We’ve handled cases involving household products (lawn mowers, exhaust fans, washers and dryers), motor vehicles (cars, motorcycles, ATVs), industrial equipment (cranes, conveyors, turntables, pressure vessels like boilers and autoclaves, lift trucks) agricultural equipment (augers, forage blowers, heaters). The list goes on. We understand the issues, we speak the language of engineering experts, we see the human factors elements and we live and breath catastrophic injury cases that threaten your company. We know that a resolved case, before the jury is empaneled, is where you want your litigation to end—but you can only get there if your lawyers know the way to the courtroom, around the courtroom and how to get back out under our own power.
