Product Liability / Defective Products
Hazardous or inadequately labeled products can be found almost everywhere. Levin, Fishbein, Sedran & Berman has extensive experience representing people who have been injured by defective or unreasonably dangerous products, both in individual cases and class actions.
The firm is equipped to vigorously prosecute cases involving defective product design, defective manufacturing, inadequate labeling and product warnings, misuse by a third party, recalls and other foreseeable problems. This practice area relates well to the firm’s practice involving defective drugs and medical devices, and serves to reinforce the firm’s expertise in these overlapping litigation areas.
Levin, Fishbein, Sedran & Berman have the knowledge and resources to fully investigate these often complex cases in order to obtain superior results for clients. Discovery of the defects in such products as the Ford Explorer, the Bridgestone tire, and asbestos used in school construction have been tasks the firm has undertaken. In addition, the firm litigated against The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. a product liability claim, also involving unfair trade and consumer protection theories relating to that defendant's Entran product, which was a radiant heating hose device that was defective, resulting in a substantial recovery on behalf of the class. The firm has thrived on the challenges posed by such complex litigation matters.
On an individual case basis, the firm has litigated against manufacturers of ladders, automobiles, insulation materials, airplane manufacturers and others for defects causing injuries.
