Your Needs + Our Focus + Proven Results

Product Liability

Over the course of our more than eight decades of combined litigation experience, Stanton | Barton LLC has defended product liability lawsuits throughout the country.  We represent companies who manufacture automobiles and heavy trucks, pharmaceutical products and medical devices, industrial and manufacturing equipment, and a variety of consumer products. We have also defended toxic tort lawsuits for consumer and chemical product manufacturers. In addition to our defense of product liability matters, we regularly defend our automobile manufacturer clients in breach of warranty and Lemon Law cases.

Though our clients cover a broad spectrum of industries, our attorneys have valuable practical, real-world and corporate in-house experience that contributes to our comprehensive understanding of our clients’ businesses and helps them to overcome obstacles and capitalize on new opportunities. Our work for product liability clients includes handling protective accident investigations, providing quick and early claim evaluations and management, and aggressively defending and trying cases to jury when necessary, all while taking into account our clients’ economic and reputational interests.

Collectively, our team of experienced trial attorneys have protected the interests of companies faced with product liability lawsuits for more than eighty years. From that experience, we have developed a proficiency in the complex technical and regulatory issues that our clients encounter during litigation. We stay on top of issues our clients face through active involvement in all of the major local and national product liability defense organizations, including the prestigious Product Liability Advisory Council.

Protective Accident Investigations

Our clients know that, following a serious product-related accident, it is extremely important to conduct a prompt and thorough investigation to evaluate possible claims and defenses. The attorneys and staff at Stanton | Barton LLC are available at any time, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, to quickly respond to accidents and conduct protective investigations of potential exposure. Our investigations include product and scene inspections, interviews of witnesses, and the retention of experts to gather and interpret key evidence and data. When our initial investigation is complete we offer clients a prompt and detailed evaluation of potential risk and recommendations for protecting against and managing possible claims, to include a realistic strategy for resolution, in most cases within days of our assignment.

Claim Management and Defending Lawsuits

Claims and lawsuits are almost inevitable after a product-related accident, regardless whether the product played a role in causing the accident. Armed with the benefit of evidence marshaled in the course of our protective investigation, our clients are well-prepared to defend claims and lawsuits from the very outset. When litigation is necessary, our attorneys draw from their experience trying product liability lawsuits to formulate and implement a strategy to prepare for trial and drive each case to the best possible resolution. We also have an extensive database of investigators and experts to assist in our defense strategy, helping us save our clients’ time and money.

We Promise and Deliver

Regardless of the size of the case, we firmly believe that it is our responsibility and privilege to earn our clients’ trust and confidence at every step of the way. To that end, we promise and deliver the most responsive, resourceful and efficient representation possible.
