Product Liability

Our lawyers have litigated and tried product liability claims in state and federal courts for both consumer products (including furniture and motorcycle components) and industrial products (such as multi-cell conduit, asbestos and valves). We understand that these cases require a team approach and we work closely with both in-house counsel as well as outside experts. This is a complex area of the law in all jurisdictions, especially in Louisiana with the interplay between the Louisiana Products Liability Act and Louisiana law of redhibition and sales. Federal maritime law can also complicate the analysis. Not all insurance provides coverage for product defects and we have litigated the coverage issues incidental to product litigation. Clients know that they need a lawyer with experience and a firm with the resources that can handle what is often a voluminous record. MMK has that experience and capacity.
