Product Liability


Clinton & Clinton represents manufacturers, distributors and retailers in actions involving allegations of defective design, defective manufacture, lack of adequate warnings and breach of warranty. The firm has extensive experience in cases involving a wide variety of products and is an acknowledged leader in the handling of product defense litigation. Over the years, we have defended product defect and negligent maintenance actions concerning a wide range of products from grinding wheels to auto transmission/braking systems to elevators and escalators to medical devices.

The diversity of our products liability practice is reflected in our clients, which range from individuals, partnerships and closely held corporations to multi-national companies. Clients for whom we provide products liability representation include both foreign and domestic manufacturing companies as well as foreign and domestic insurance carriers.

The attorneys at Clinton & Clinton recognize that product liability cases present a significant financial risk for business. For many years now, the California courts have applied the law of strict liability in cases involving allegations of a product defect. These cases not only require litigation skills, but also require technical knowledge and an understanding of the product itself. We draw on our pool of highly educated and experienced expert witnesses to work with us to prepare for trial and present the product or line of products to the jury in an understandable manner. Attorneys from the firm have handled the leading cases in California dealing with the doctrine of strict products liability in the areas of design, manufacture and marketing and are sensitive to the national implications and potential financial consequences of such cases.
