Product Liability

FP&R’s Products Liability group is a multidisciplinary team with wide-ranging experience in products liability issues. We have successfully defended component part manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and distributors in litigation involving significant bodily injury or death caused by a product’s failure or failure of design. FP&R attorneys represent clients in both state and federal courts and have extensive experience working with expert witnesses to prepare a winning defense while utilizing cost-effective strategies to obtain the best results for our clients.

Our Products Liability team routinely handles claims of manufacturing or design defects and claims involving strict liability, negligence, misrepresentation, breach of warranty, and failure to warn. We have an established history of defending claims arising out of a vast spectrum of consumer products ranging from individual consumer products, such as home heating units and appliances to medical devices in the health care industry to commercially engineered components for industrial clients in chemical, petrochemical, energy and manufacturing. When lawsuits are filed against our clients, we seek to find creative, efficient solutions that allow them to resolve legal issues and get back to business as usual.
