Product Liability

SR&A represents international and national manufacturers, distributors, and retailers in an array of high-exposure product liability lawsuits and claims in the state and federal courts. Current and former clients include industrial equipment manufacturers, automobile manufacturers, and manufacturers and vendors of sports and recreational equipment and apparel. Our product liability experience also extends to the defense of medical and dental device manufacturers, cosmetics manufacturers, food supplement retailers, and producers of food products.

By closely partnering with our clients and outside consultants, we successfully defend the integrity of our clients’ products, and present their story in a sound and favorable light. We work closely with liability experts in accident reconstruction, biomechanics, conspicuity, human factors and warnings to defeat “junk science” claims. With the assistance of damages experts in the fields of medicine and economics, we have similarly mitigated, and often eliminated, inflated economic loss and pain and suffering allegations.

Howard Strongin, whose practice is substantially devoted to the defense of product liability matters, serves as regional defense counsel to Fortune 500 product manufacturers in the sports equipment/recreational product and machinery fields. He also provides product liability advisory services to an international consumer product manufacturer and an international forklift manufacturer. Howard is an active member in the Industrial Truck Association, an industrial equipment trade group, and has published in the product liability and technology fields.
