Products Liability Defense

Products Liability Defense

Anselmi & Carvelli, LLP represents national and international companies in defending product liability actions. We have both practical and sophisticated knowledge of how best to develop and present our clients’ defense, especially in high-exposure cases.

When appropriate, to minimize litigation expenses, we work with our clients, including in-house counsel, to resolve claims pre-suit or during the early stages of litigation.

When early resolution is not practicable, we aggressively yet efficiently pursue all avenues of discovery and investigate all facets of the allegations, with the goal of uncovering facts necessary to file a successful dispositive motion. In cases that have resulted in trial by jury, we have enjoyed considerable success in courts in New Jersey and New York.

Our practice includes:

  • Construction-equipment accidents
  • Consumer products
  • Equipment leases
  • Pharmaceutical products
  • Premises liability

Our recent engagements include:

  • Winning a no-cause jury verdict in favor of an international petroleum company on claims its pipeline operation caused a fire and explosion at a home nearby.
  • Resolving a product liability claim on behalf of an international beverage company over significant injuries caused by a shattered drinking glass.

Please contact Paul F. Carvelli or Andrew E. Anselmi for additional information.
