Measuring success in products liability actions
In a lawsuit for products liability, our chief objective is to secure full compensation for serious, life-changing injuries or wrongful death. Damage awards include amounts for past medical bills, future medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, rehabilitation costs and even expenses related to necessary home remodels to accommodate disabilities. The DeVoto Law Firm also measures success by how your case forces manufacturers to make safety improvements or take dangerous products off the market. Product liability attorney Tom DeVoto’s victories in several gasoline tanker explosion cases that caused burn injury and death directly led to major changes in that industry. Serving our clients and our community makes our legal practice personally rewarding.

Tom has represented me on a couple of matters.. Two worker's compensation cases and the accidents that caused my work injuries. He handled my cases quickly and efficiently and although they were not big cases he handled them like they were important cases. If any of my friends or co-workers get injured, I always give them Tom's name.
I was in an industrial accident, stairway collapse, and Tom handled my case against the owner of the building. When the topic of settlement came up before the start of the trial the defense lawyer mentioned a small amount, Later, Tom and I were in the elevator with the defense lawyer and Tom looked at him and said, you're going down. Watching Tom try my case and object and control the evidence was great. The jury gave Tom every single penny that he asked for. Tom and I stay in touch. I call him Big Tom.
