It takes ingenuity, skill and experience to deal with the complexities of product liability cases in today's mass tort litigation. The plaintiffs' bar is more organized, and the multiple venues and multi-district nature of the litigation are more challenging. Our trial lawyers help clients navigate these difficult times in U.S. state and federal courts, in multi-district and class action litigation around the nation. Using sophisticated database systems and cost-effective strategies, we have guided our clients to resolution of product liability matters while meeting their goals and expectations.
Locke Lord product liability lawyers have years of experience and the ability to provide strategic, comprehensive services, including defending product liability cases, supervising nationwide litigation, and providing advice to avoid future claims. We are known for winning complex product liability trials involving catastrophic injuries and defending nationwide class actions.
Whether the case involves a complex mechanical or electrical product, toxic tort, food product, pharmaceutical or medical device, our product liability trial lawyers understand our clients' products and become intimately involved in the details of a product's design, manufacture, distribution, marketing and labeling. We are skilled forensic investigators with respect to the scientific, engineering and practical aspects of a client's products and well-versed in disease physiology and trauma biomechanics to understand how and why disease, injury or death occurs.
