Automotive & Motorized Vehicles



Wilson Elser has deep experience in the defense of product liability cases involving all types of motorized vehicles, including automobiles, motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles, boats, personal watercraft, outboard engines, all-terrain vehicles, off-road agricultural equipment, forklifts and other industrial equipment, and the full spectrum of component parts manufacturers for the industry. We go beyond our contracted services to clients in the United States and Asia through our membership in the Product Liability Advisory Council (PLAC), a nonprofit association of corporate members and private practice attorneys who specialize in the defense of product liability suits against corporate manufacturers. PLAC files briefs as amicus curiae in state and federal courts to present the perspective of product manufacturers and seek balance in the application and development of the law as it affects product liability.

In this age of specialization, legal counsel and representation is no place for generalists. That’s why Wilson Elser’s Product Liability attorneys work closely with other practice areas in the firm to ensure delivery of the best defense, current thinking on risk management and the latest technology from e-discovery to scientific evaluations by respected experts. The Wilson Elser attorney who represents your organization is always on the alert for red flags as well as the latest trends, from adverse legislation to the next great idea, and will ensure you have the resources and legal advice that can make a difference to your business.
