Fonda & Fraser, LLP’s product liability practice involves disputes between consumers and manufacturers, wholesalers, or retailers of consumer products. The firm has extensive product liability experience at both the state and federal level in defending issues of negligence, strict liability, breach of warranty, and consumer protection claims based on design defect, manufacturing defect, and failure to warn.
We strive to thoroughly understand the legal, manufacturing and engineering aspects of our product liability cases while endeavoring to provide the best possible representation, which ultimately motivates the opponent to settle on terms favorable to our client. We strongly advocate alternative dispute resolutions, such as mediation, as an alternative to protracted litigation in products cases.
The highly technical nature of this area of law requires the assistance and contribution of exceptionally credentialed consultants and experts in the manufacturing, packaging and engineering fields. Fonda & Fraser's wide variety of experienced attorneys have enjoyed great success in communicating the intricacies of complex product liability cases to juries through implementation of cutting-edge computerized graphic exhibits explained by our renowned experts. By example, the firm obtained a defense verdict in the star-studded Irena Medavoy & Mike Medavoy v. Arnold Klein, MD & Allergan, Inc. (makers of Botox ®) case.
