Products Liability

People who are injured while using a product increasingly look to the court system to address their injuries and damages. The law of products liability requires a company to design and manufacture its product free from defects. In Nevada, products liability cases (also known as “strict liability”) have become increasing complex and broad in scope, presenting a significant risk of larger verdicts. Erickson, Thorpe & Swainston handles all aspects of the ever growing and complicated field of products liability. We have represented individuals, manufacturers, designers and retailers in cases involving a wide variety of products such as those made in the the automotive and transportation industries, medical products, construction equipment, and general manufacturers.
