Risk Management/Product Development

In the development, manufacture and sale of safe products, there is no substitute for sound engineering practices. It is equally important that your company is prepared for not only potential lawsuits and claims, but government investigations as well. Wegman, Hessler & Vanderburg has the expertise to defend both your company and your products.

Our product liability group counsels its manufacturing clients with state of the art product warnings that help reduce accidents and protect against liability claims.  We utilize our expertise to guide our clients at the beginning of product research and development in order to help protect against potentially catastrophic losses.

We can help you:

  • Improve your product development process by the early identification of potential problems and issues.
  • Review and advise your vendor contracts to help avoid or mitigate losses.
  • Navigate through the complex governmental regulations to assure that your products meet all applicable standards.
  • Improve overall customer satisfaction by eliminating and/or reducing costly lawsuits due to alleged design flaws.
