Products Liability

Schreeder, Wheeler & Flint's products liability litigation practice stems back to the founding of the firm. Our attorneys' extensive experience in this specialized area of litigation comes from representing clients in class action and individual lawsuits and mass tort and "toxic tort" litigation.

In many instances, our attorneys assist clients in investigating and evaluating claims long before any lawsuit has been filed. The firm provides advice on necessary and appropriate initiatives with respect to circumstances that could lead to product liability claims, including by advising clients who are dealing with federal and state regulatory agencies. The goal of the firm's approach to this area of the law is to eliminate or minimize potential product liability exposure by working with clients to adopt appropriate preventive measures in connection with their product offerings. Whether as advocate or advisor, we bring practical solutions to the product liability needs of our clients.

But, where litigation is inevitable or underway, the firm's many years of successful products liability litigation experience have resulted in significant industry expertise in a variety of areas, including chemicals, asbestos, tobacco, medical devices, building and construction products, aircraft, elevators and escalators, and electrical equipment. For instance, the firm has proudly represented affiliates of the Schindler Group, one of the world's largest producers of elevators and escalators in the world, against products liability claims throughout the State of Georgia.
