Product Liability

Elizabeth’s practice continues to develop in product liability, and frequently overlaps with her practice in construction, property damage, and professional negligence. Elizabeth has been instructed in a number of high value cases for high profile multinational companies including Siemens, Kubota and Indesit, often involving very complex forensic evidence and difficult questions of law.

Selected Cases

  • Acting for multinational company in $4m claim arising out of an allegedly defective boiler management unit, involving complex issues as to whether the product was defective at the time of delivery.
  • Acting for multinational company in £6.5m claim arising out of defective automatic number plate recognition cameras, which were unable to recognise the third character on UK number plates.
  • Acting for product importer in property damage claim arising out of a fire involving a ride-on lawn mower. As well as complex forensic evidence and arguments on causation, it involved issues regarding assignment.
  • Acting for residential property owner in £1.1m property damage claim arising out of fire caused by an allegedly defective tumble dryer.
