Products Liability

Smith Sovik defends products liability lawsuits for both large and small, insured and self-insured corporations all over New York State.  In fact, we’ve been defending manufacturers and distributors against lawsuits since the inception of products liability law in the 1960s.  Our experience allows us to take a dynamic, innovative approach to defending our clients, which include manufacturers of cranes, saws, slicers, power tools, ladders, hydraulic and electrical systems, appliances and electrical components.

Kristin Norfleet is our primary outside counsel for our general liability claims in New York because she understands our business objectives and uses her legal expertise to advocate for Carrols in a manner consistent with our objectives.  Kristin has an excellent base of legal and business knowledge, and she works well with opposing counsel, courts and our carriers. Kristin has provided Carrols with excellent legal representation and working with her is a pleasure.
