Multilevel Product Failure

St. Louis Multilevel Products Liability Lawyers

Capable representation in complex legal actions

As a general rule, the more complex your case is, the more experienced you need your lawyer to be. In products liability cases, what makes a product dangerous is a defect that can be traced back to the design, the manufacture or the labeling. But what if there are several defects? And what if the product is a complex machine, like a car, with many moving parts, designed, produced and assembled by different subcontractors? Which party produced the defect and is therefore responsible for the harm you suffered?

For more than 40 years, the DeVoto Law Firm has litigated complex products liability lawsuits where the harm was clear, but liability for the defect was difficult to pinpoint. Products liability lawyer Tom DeVoto is a determined advocate whose commitment to his clients drives his thorough investigation of every case. His insatiable curiosity serves his clients well, as he follows the evidence to the party who must be held accountable.

But the DeVoto Law Firm has seasoned investigators and technical experts on call. These forensic professionals have the expertise to get to the bottom of any design or manufacture defect. We never accept a hasty settlement, because we’re busy building your strongest case for recovery. Our record of success at trial gives us a solid hand to play in any settlement negotiations.

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.
- O.B.

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.
