Product Liability Defense
Briggs and Morgan litigators have successfully defended product liability actions for product manufacturers, including dietary supplement manufacturers and distributors, in federal and state trial and appellate courts throughout the country. Much of our product liability litigation involves claims that a product caused injury or property damage due to negligence in product design, manufacturing, marketing or warnings.
Our experience representing manufacturers in product liability actions located across the United States is significant. In particular, Briggs has represented German-based manufacturers and insurers in product liability actions in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York, West Virginia, Virginia, Florida, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington and Hawaii.
Briggs has successfully defended clients in the nutritional and dietary supplement industry. Our firm has also represented top manufacturers in a number of negligence, warranty or other product liability claims. We are keenly aware that class actions can amass thousands of small claims to pose a serious threat to the very survival of a business. Our extensive class action defense experience is crucial to successfully representing manufacturers sued for product malfunction.
Our attorneys also represent manufacturers in coverage litigation related to product liability. Many times policy coverage involve complex issues which must be resolved in litigation. Our attorneys have experience in suits involving casualty, comprehensive and other types of insurance for companies.
With such a depth of experience, Briggs attorneys provide counseling related to product warranty issues and liability disclaimers.
