Defective tool cases require the best and most experienced lawyers
Berman & Simmons is widely recognized as the best personal injury lawyers in Maine and among the best in the U.S.
We have obtained several of the largest jury verdicts in Maine history, and many of the largest settlements for our clients. Our attorneys are extremely knowledgeable about medical issues and skilled at proving fault, documenting the extent of your losses, and putting you in the best position to receive full compensation. We have recovered $1 billion for our injured clients.
Defective product cases require in-depth knowledge of product liability law, product manufacturing and specifications, and relevant safety standards. They also require experts who can investigate and “reconstruct” an industrial accident and show insurance companies, defense lawyers and, if necessary, juries exactly how you were injured, and why you are entitled to compensation. Our team includes lawyers with specific knowledge and a track record of success in this area, and we regularly work with the top industry experts to build winning cases for our clients.
