Many U.S. corporations view the risk of product liability as the greatest uncertainty and challenge they face. Product liability issues extend beyond legal defense to influence insurance coverage, brand image, financial reporting, corporate governance and communications to shareholders. In Texas, these claims are governed by a statutory scheme that includes strict liability and indemnification between the product manufacturer and retailer, and our attorneys have the experience to litigate and defend both types of claims.
We understand the importance of a thoughtful and strategic approach to product liability litigation. CMW’s experienced attorneys regularly provide representation to manufacturers, retailers, distributors, vendors and other parties in claims involving injuries, property damage and death allegedly caused by defects in the design, manufacturing and marketing of:
- Agricultural products
- Construction equipment
- Industrial machinery – products and chemicals
- Hand and power tools
- Household appliances – products and chemicals
- Recreational products
- Building products
- Pharmaceuticals and medical devices
- Food products
- Oil and gas
While the bulk of this practice involves parties with insurance coverage, we also represent self-insured parties. In both circumstances, we are sensitive to our clients’ bottom lines, as well as their reputations.
After evaluating your case, we will discuss options to arrive at a litigation strategy tailored to your specific circumstances and requirements. We are fully prepared to take your case to trial, if necessary, or pursue an aggressive resolution strategy that protects your company.
