Defective Product Litigation

Willman & Silvaggio has successfully defended toxic tort cases for three decades. Companies named in such suits face the potential for considerable loss in the form of damages, ongoing legal costs and negative publicity. Our firm`s representation of manufacturers, distributors and contractors of chemicals and substances has allowed us to develop expertise in the handling of thousands of toxic tort claims both on a national and local level. 
Willman & Silvaggio is uniquely qualified and experienced in commercial insurance coverage. A significant portion of our insurance defense work has concentrated on the circumstances and needs of policy holders. We also have litigated or advised insurance companies in connection with commercial coverage disputes -- especially as it relates to policy obligations and bad faith claims - to minimize risk and to effectively resolve disputes. 
Our Courtroom experience coupled with our ability to understand our clients` operations has made Willman & Silvaggio a leader in the field of Products Liability Litigation at all levels. The companies we represent vary in size from small, local concerns to multi-national corporations. We defend our clients against claims of design defect, strict liability, failure to warn and a host of other novel allegations with the expertise attained through many years of defense litigation.
