Product Liability & Complex Torts
Product liability claims often present as a mass tort: multiple claimants affected by the same alleged wrong. For a business facing a mass tort claim, having experienced counsel is vital.
The lawyers of McEwan Partners have decades of experience defending complex product liability claims, whether brought by class action or individual claim. Our experience includes the defence of major automotive manufacturers, automotive parts manufacturers, manufacturers in the tobacco industry, manufacturers of cellular phones, as well as manufacturers of breast implants and various other medical products and devices.
