Product Liability

Product Liability

Every year, thousands of personal injury cases are filed against manufacturers seeking millions of dollars in each case. In today's legal climate, product liability cases are some of the toughest cases to defend. After years of alleged corporate malfeasance by the media and the economic setback in 2008, jurors are quick to believe the worst about your company. To win your product liability case, you need an attorney skilled in the intricacies of a product liability lawsuit. The attorneys at Sheffer Law Firm, PLLC continue to handle complex product liability cases throughout the United States. We are one of the first law firms with significant experience in managing electronic discovery issues. Whether in a Multi-District Litigation panel with over 14,000 cases in federal court or in state courts throughout the country, our experience in electronic discovery and complex case management gives you a competitive edge.

Perhaps nothing is more important in today's product liability case than the manner in which your company's witnesses comport themselves when testifying. Drawing on our personal experiences with mock trials and juror focus groups, we have developed methods that put your employees at ease during depositions and trials and make them better witnesses. Realizing that evidence in one product liability case can have negative implications for your company in thousands of other cases, we have developed strategies that minimize your company's total potential liability.
