Products Liability

Harrington, Foxx, Dubrow & Canter, LLP, has been integrally involved in the evolution of products liability law in California since Greenman v. Yuba Power Products, Inc., the seminal case recognizing this tort. We have tried countless products cases over the years. We have also participated in the appeals that have helped shape California products liability law.

Through our representation of a wide variety of product manufacturers we have established an effective network of experts in various fields, including engineering, accident reconstruction, biomechanics, chemistry, warning design, health care, and damages analysis. We have defended numerous catastrophic injury cases and consulted with major product manufacturers on strategies for limiting potential liability. Our practice has also included defending distributors and retailers alleged to be in the chain of distribution. We have acted as national counsel for product manufacturers by managing and litigating cases across the United States.

We publish an in-house primer on products liability which is updated yearly and distributed to our clients to keep them advised on the current status of California products liability law. Members of the firm have published books and articles on products liability, most recently an authoritative guide entitled MANAGING PRODUCT LIABILITY RISKS: A Comprehensive Guide to Wining Legal Strategies for Managing Product Liability, by David H. Canter (Aspatore, 2005).

Our clientele, past and present, includes manufacturers of automobiles, heavy equipment, construction equipment, machinery, power tools, farm equipment, propane storage and delivery systems, oil field equipment and machinery, tires, automotive component parts, medical devices, medical tools and equipment, pumps, HVAC equipment, hydraulic cylinders, water craft, firearms, heavy trucks, buses, consumer goods, packaged/processed food and chemicals.
