Products Liability

HUGO PARKER attorneys have been actively involved in products liability litigation in the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles for over twenty years.

Edward Hugo, James Parker and Charles Park have been trial counsel in hundreds of asbestos personal injury trials, many of which have gone to verdict.   They have obtained either defense verdicts or relatively small net verdicts below the lowest pre-trial demands in nearly all of the cases tried to verdict.   These trials have included favorable verdicts in cases involving living mesothelioma plaintiffs, plaintiffs alleging asbestos-related lung cancer and plaintiffs claiming advanced asbestosis.   The name principals are retained as national trial counsel by several law firms whose responsibilities include managing regional and national asbestos litigation for some of the nation's largest corporations as well as directly by Fortune 500 companies defending these claims.

The firm is well versed in the needs of products defendants to defend cases in proportion to realistic liability exposures.   The firm's experience includes the defense of unimpaired (medical monitoring), minimally impaired, terminally ill and wrongful death claims and the unique liability and damage issues involved in such disparate cases.   The firm has the ability to economically work-up and defend all types of products claims in a manner consistent with the client's realistic potential exposures.


In addition to the firm's extensive asbestos products liability experience, our attorneys have defended and tried cases involving a wide range of other products.   The firm also represents medical device manufacturers and has successfully litigated products liability claims ranging from cardiac devices to laser technologies.   The firm has worked directly with manufacturers and their general counsel in coordinating regional defense of such matters.
