Products Liability

Christovich & Kearney represents manufacturers and their insurers in the diverse field of products liability. A sampling of many products defended includes: aircraft, elevators/escalators, sports equipment, food and beverages, lawn mowers, toys, water heaters, electrical appliances, cell phones, industrial lubricants, motor vehicles and accessories, turbine engines, mechanical presses, transformers, and tobacco.

Breast implants, orthopedic bone screws, pacemakers/defibrillators, surgical staplers, trocars, vena cava filters, restraints, contact lenses, and heart lung machines are some of the medical devices we have defended. Christovich & Kearney has represented medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies in multidistrict litigation as well as in individual cases.
