Products Liability

Goodsill’s litigation attorneys have been handling product liability claims for more than forty years and have been involved in most of the seminal appellate cases which define modern Hawaii products liability law.

Examples include:

  • Product Liability Defense – Defended manufacturers of such products as: construction equipment, automobiles, motorcycles, bicycles, contact-lenses, agricultural products, aircraft and aircraft component parts, helicopters, boats, ships, warehousing lift devices, scuba tanks, sports equipment, jet skis, pharmaceuticals, electrical equipment, chemical products, industrial microtunnellers, and meatcutters.
  • Mass Tort Litigation – Represented E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company in hundreds of Hawaii cases involving the fungicide Benlate®; serve as local counsel for manufacturers of various products in Hawaii asbestos litigation; routinely serve as local counsel in high-profile mass tort cases in the drug and medical device area as well as with other types of products.
