Automobile Product Liability

Automobile Product Litigation

Automobile product liability lawsuits are on the rise for several reasons: the substantive law has become more favorable to plaintiffs; changes in procedural law and increased media publicity actually encourage these types of suits; and jurisdictional limitations have been relaxed, so plaintiffs can sue an out-of-state or foreign automobile manufacturer in a local court. These and other factors combine to create an almost “perfect storm” – making it critical for automobile manufacturers to partner with a successful litigation and risk management team like Aaronson Rappaport to protect their rights and interests.

Our attorneys have achieved an impressive record of successes for domestic and foreign automobile manufacturers in a wide range of complex, high-profile automobile product liability cases. And we notably have won decisions that are having a sustained effect on automobile liability litigation policy nationwide.
