Product Liability

Taking on Big Businesses in Product Liability Cases

At the law firm of Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson & Covelli, we have more than 20 years of experience handling cases involving defectively designed or defectively manufactured products that cause harm. We know that these cases are different than other negligence cases.

They are different because our attorneys are going up against big businesses and the insurance companies that represent them. They are different because we need to prove many elements that don't need to be proven in general negligence cases.

We need to prove that an accident was caused not by misuse of the product, or by improper alterations to a product, but because the product was not made to be as safe as it should have been. Typically, we need to bring in experts to prove our side.

A Battle of the Experts

Product liability cases tend to be battles between experts. They will bring in theirs. We will bring in ours. But who has the advantage?

We believe that we do. We have the advantage not only because we have a vast network of experts to bring in, but because we know how to make certain that the technical information the experts provide is properly translated to the average people who make up a jury. We make it clear to them what our experts are saying and why it means they should order fair compensation for you.

Every Product Liability Case is Unique

No two cases are the same. One may involve a box with defective handles that break and cause the box to drop on a person's feet causing serious harm. Another may involve a crashworthiness issue in a defective car that caused an accident.

Each case needs to be handled individually, with a unique strategy applied. We have the experience to do this.
