Product liability litigation generally involves scores of industries and significantly more categories of products, but the key principles are often the same. It’s those principles that we will tackle. Unlike other torts, when it comes to products liability, the evidentiary burden for plaintiffs is relatively low and the exposure for defendants can be extraordinarily high. We will discuss how to build a winning defense strategy and, even better, how to minimize your company’s exposure in the first place. Even the most vigilant, safety-conscious companies must be prepared to respond to serious products liability claims.
Our authors consist of a battle-tested group of highly experienced attorneys who have spent their entire careers providing just that type of advice and fighting through every phase and aspect of product liability litigation from the initial claim investigation, complaint, through trials and even appeals. Cozen O’Connor has been a leader in products liability defense for more than three decades. Our attorneys represent foreign and domestic designers, manufacturers, and distributors of a diverse array of products, from food and drugs to industrial equipment and building materials. We help clients respond to major personal injury and property damage claims in the form of single-product cases, class actions, mass torts, and multidistrict litigation, as well as all types of congressional, regulatory, or criminal investigations. Members of the products liability team serve as ongoing national counsel to major products manufacturers and routinely appear before state and federal courts, arbitration panels, and federal agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration and Consumer Product Safety Commission.
But don’t let all this talk of our experience fool you. This will not be another boring legal blog. We’ll make jokes, some good, some not so good. We’ll discuss sports. We’ll reference popular TV shows and movies, and even some of the more arcane ones. And, most important, we’ll take on your product liability prevention and defense concerns. That’s right – we want to hear from you. Please interact and comment. We want to hear it all – what you think is good, bad or even ugly. This is, after all, social media.
