Products Liability

Grotefeld Hoffmann has extensive experience representing both domestic and international manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors. Our firm has successfully handled lawsuits alleging breach of contract, breach of warranty, negligent design, negligent manufacture, and failure to warn in jurisdictions throughout the country.

These cases range from complex, large-scale national class actions pending against multinational corporations, to lawsuits filed against domestic, family-owned manufacturers. In addition to our commitment to limiting our clients’ exposure in products liability lawsuits, we devise a pragmatic approach to limit the implications a lawsuit can have on our clients, both nationally and internationally.

We are sensitive to our clients’ need to maintain ongoing business relations, as well as to protect their brands and corporate reputations at all times. We visit their production facilities, learn their quality control procedures and engross ourselves in our clients’ businesses. Grotefeld Hoffmann attorneys work with our clients to prevent future litigation and avoid risk through guidance regarding contractual provisions, warranties, and product warnings and instructions.

Our seasoned products liability attorneys handle matters throughout jurisdictions in the United States and Canada, including courts of appeal, as well as before the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation. Our experience spans a wide range of products and industries, including automobiles, automotive products, potable water systems and components, boats and recreational vehicles, consumer products, farm equipment, power tools, electrical equipment, and construction equipment.
