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.

We have had a great partnership with Smith, Sovik and, in particular, Steve Williams. Steve has delivered great results for us not only in Litigation, but also in handling EEOC charges as well as mediations and arbitrations which are a part of our Dispute Resolution Process. Steve is an extremely talented litigator; however, he also works hard to attain good settlements for us. His case evaluations are thorough and honest. It has been a pleasure working with Steve and I look forward to continuing our partnership.
