For the past 30 years, members of our firm have been involved in the defense of a variety of products claimed to be either defectively manufactured or designed. The defense of high-exposure product liability cases has become the benchmark of the firm’s civil litigation practice. The trial experience of the firm’s partners in this area of practice is surpassed by few, if any, other defense firms.
Ford, Walker, Haggerty & Behar has defended products including aircraft components, automobiles, bicycles, heavy machinery, punch presses and van converters, as well as the owners of premises where claims of strict liability lie. Realizing these matters are more complex than the other kinds of tort litigation, our approach is to work closely and early with the client in developing an effective defense strategy, including the development of an agreed-upon plan of action that will lead to the successful defense of the product.
