Complex Torts & Product Liability
A leader on the front lines of asbestos litigation for more than two decades, Rivkin Radler’s product liability attorneys have represented Fortune 500 companies, property owners, and universities sued in venues throughout New York and New Jersey, and in state and federal courts across the country.
The vast majority of these cases involve individuals diagnosed with mesothelioma, a disease which poses a large risk for our clients and their insurance carriers because of the sizable verdicts often returned in favor of these plaintiffs and their families.
Working closely with experts in the fields of industrial hygiene, occupational medicine, toxicology, pathology, radiology, and pulmonology, we effectively develop defenses based upon a thorough and detailed examination of the state-of-the-art at the time of the alleged exposure, the composition of the product at issue or aspects of the plaintiffs’ medical diagnosis, and treatment. We have negotiated matrix-based global settlements in thousands of cases, saving our clients millions of dollars against the potential exposure associated with resolving each case individually.
