Products Liability

The firm has extensive experience litigating cases involving the design and manufacturing of motor vehicles, airplanes, tires, medical devices, constructioin equipment and various consumer products.  The firm's use of trial presentation technology has been critical to its success.  The technology is frequently used to enhance demonstrative exhibits illustrating the defective products and depicting injuries.  This technology is also uitilized to impeach witnesses using deposition testimony and to convey the extent of suffering using day in the life videos.  The impact of this technology is enormous as it allows the fact finder to visualize and understand the extent of the subject injury or tragedy.  Representative cases successfully handled by the firm are as follows:

  • Miethe – Received significant verdict against the Hertz Corporation on behalf of woman severely injured in automobile accident where tire failed. (Eleventh Jud. Cir. Case No. 94-13609 CA 15)

  • Lam – Obtained confidential settlement for the parents of the deceased in wrongful death action brought in St. Lucie County, Florida following a single sports utility vehicle rollover accident. The accident occurred due to a defective rear tire. (S.D. Fla.)

  • Underwood – Secured large settlement on behalf of elderly woman who suffered a severely comminuted hip fracture in a fall caused by a defective walker. (Fifth Jud. Cir. Case No. 2010 CA 002404)
