Product Liability Defense
For decades manufacturers of industrial and consumer goods have turned to Chambliss for defense in high stakes product liability cases. Our litigators have tried in state and federal courts throughout the Southeast and the country as well as represented clients before numerous arbitration panels and regulatory bodies. We have significant experience with heavy manufacturing equipment, as well as personal defense weapons. The scope of industries we serve is broad, and we use our versatile trial experience to our clients' advantage.
To make the best case for our clients, we put ourselves in their shoes and learn all we can about how the product was made, why the client made the design choices they did, how their business works, and we package everything together in understandable terms for judges and juries. We have an excellent track record for sharing our clients' stories in a way that shows they made the best product decisions possible. We also are very thorough in reviewing evidence and making sure it has not been tampered with – several cases have been thrown out because of insufficient evidence.
Aside from proactively educating clients on the safety of their products and facilities, we have drafted policies and procedures to minimize risk and liability. We have been involved with the testing of hundreds of machines and dozens of site walks, for example. Our attorneys also advise on a variety of supporting product issues, such as document retention, warnings content, intellectual property, and design review. No matter the product in question, our risk management and litigation team is dedicated to resolving product disputes quickly and at a reasonable cost so our clients can get back to producing and selling their remarkable products.
