Product Liability &
Toxic Tort Litigation
Our firm is routinely called upon to defend manufacturers and other corporate defendants in product liability and toxic tort litigation. These cases have involved large-scale industrial accidents, fires, explosions, and exposure to environmental hazards. MGS attorneys have defended and tried such cases to conclusion before juries, and we have been honored as Product Liability Law Firm of the Year in North Carolina by Corporate INTL Magazine.
Over the years, our clients in this area of practice have included water heater and boiler makers, paper mills, elevator companies, heating equipment manufacturers, carpet manufacturers, a producer of paints, a multinational technology company, and a broad spectrum of component part manufacturers. We also defend railroads sued in toxic tort cases brought under the Federal Employers' Liability Act due to alleged exposure to such agents as asbestos and industrial solvents. Additionally, we handle matters involving the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, and we have often brought third-party claims against other entities as part of ensuring that our clients are not held responsible for another's wrongdoing.
