Product Liability & Tort Litigation
Around 50% of our practice is focused on products liability defense. We represent designers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers in litigation involving a wide variety of products including: automobiles, personal recreational vehicles, heavy equipment, and consumer products.
PY was originally built around our products liability defense practice. Many of our attorneys have focused decades of their careers on defending products cases. We have developed the technical knowledge necessary to defend our client's products against allegations of defective design, defective manufacturing, or defective marketing.
Our product liability lawyers are also well-versed in environmental issues, including cases in which toxic exposure is alleged. Such cases are often brought either as class-action lawsuits or by hundreds of individual plaintiffs. These require strong expertise in the subject area as well as organized and efficient management of the litigation.
