We defend companies in product liability lawsuits and work to protect our clients’ products against bodily injury and property damage claims.
Product liability claims can be devastating to companies if they are not handled properly. We have a long history of successfully defending companies against product claims, working beside them to limit their liability exposure.
We’ve represented a variety of companies throughout the state, serving as outside litigation counsel for regional manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers. Our team is able to assess and abate risk, and also adeptly defend against the personal injury and property damage claims that are often prevalent in product liability matters.
Through BPH’s extensive work in the building and construction industries in particular, we have developed a particular understanding of crane design, manufacturing and liability, construction site equipment, and various other construction materials and components. Our product liability lawyers also have considerable experience defending claims related to elevator, escalator, and lifts located in high rise commercial, hotel and residential towers throughout California, and also have experience in matters related to heavy machinery and equipment, tools, scaffolding, and commercial tractors and trailers. In addition, we have represented companies in the consumer product space including manufacturers, distributors, and retail suppliers of cosmetics, food, clothing, household products, craft beer/beverages and leisure equipment.
Our product liability practice also includes handling catastrophic personal injury claims, and while we have significant experience litigating matters in both state and federal trial and appellate courts, we work to resolve matters as expeditiously as possible, often relying on alternative dispute resolution. We aim to handle all product liability matters effectively and efficiently so that our clients can put their matter behind them and return to “business as usual.”
