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.

I was extremely fortunate to have Christopher DeFrancesco as the lead trial attorney on my defense case. From the beginning, Chris made me feel comfortable and assembled a crack team of expert witnesses. Chris thoroughly prepared me for the process and my testimony. From the moment Chris spoke to the judge and jury, I knew I was in great hands.  He masterfully shredded the plaintiff, dissected the plaintiff’s shady allegations,  and disarmed the plaintiff’s witnesses and we WON! It was a six day trial, but it only took a few minutes for the jury to deliberate. Anyone and everyone should want Chris DeFrancesco on their team!
