Kaufman Dolowich LLP defends and represents national insurance corporations in products liability matters. With offices located in every major region of the country, we are positioned to take immediate action in response to serious liability cases. Our responsiveness and persistence continues until our clients’ claims are successfully resolved.

Kaufman Dolowich clients include leading insurance companies that cover the most well-known brands in the world. We recognize the importance of expediency and confidentiality in resolving products liability matters to mitigate liability and protect the reputation of the corporations.

Our first step is to gather the facts. We consult with a team of experts who help us build strong evidence in support of our clients’ liability defenses. Based upon the facts, we are able to determine liability and accurately value claims. Although our environmental lawyers settle most cases after a thorough investigation, our litigation team is ready to prepare for trial when settlement cannot be reached.

Investigating Liable Parties

A consumer was injured by a portable tool. A worker was hurt by heavy machinery. Chemicals leached into soil, contaminating residents’ homes. A building contained toxic materials that sickened tenants. A chafing dish caught fire and burned picnic guests. Who or which entities are at fault? Our products liability defense attorneys have the technical and legal knowledge to sort through the facts, investigate the incident and identify the responsible parties.

During our investigations, we follow the stream of commerce, often locating another source of contamination or contributing factors. For example, a chemical company may have properly packaged its product to prevent dangerous spills. However, the packaging may have been compromised by the transportation company or the consumer. Likewise, a company that produces an inert gas may not be liable if another company improperly mixed the material into a harmful compound. These types of circumstances may give rise to contributory liability and shared damages or absolve the company of responsibility for the injuries.
