We have the experience and resources necessary to protect our clients' rights and interests against auto recall and other defective product claims.

Our New York product liability defense lawyers have successfully handled claims involving products ranging from automobiles to farm equipment and machinery; recreational boats to industrial machinery and equipment; and household appliances to intricate medical devices. In defending such claims, our attorneys use their long-standing relationships with technical experts to develop defense strategies designed to obtain the most advantageous outcome. See our verdicts and settlements page for examples of our past successes.

Our goals vary according to the needs of our clients and the facts of the case. Sometimes the best solution is to reach a settlement, while in other cases it is to convince the opposing party to drop a frivolous product liability lawsuit. Our insurance defense lawyers work closely with clients to understand their objectives and will tailor their approach to meet a client's specific needs.

Preventing Product Liability Claims

In addition to defending such corporations and businesses, our attorneys work closely with these entities to avoid potential products liability claims. Our experienced attorneys make it a practice to know our clients and to thoroughly understand our client's manufacturing, distribution and retail operations. In doing so, our attorneys keep abreast of ever-changing government and industry standards to help our clients limit their potential risks and liability exposure.
