While Woods, Fuller handles a broad range of litigation matters, many of our litigators specialize in product liability cases. The skills, strategies, and trial experience developed and employed in other areas of litigation complement our product liability practice.
We have handled product liability matters for local, regional, and national companies, involving airplanes, helicopters, railroad equipment, farm equipment, herbicide, trailers, tires, lumber, PVC cement, breast implants, coffee, fans, and other household appliances, to name only a few. This litigation has been venued in state and federal courts throughout South Dakota.
Expert witnesses are a key part of product liability litigation, and we work with our clients in identifying and retaining expert witnesses who will be credible and compelling. Good expert witnesses are critical not only to the issues of liability and causation, but also on medical questions and economic loss. As a result, we have developed contacts and relationships with experts from many disciplines throughout the United States. It is equally important, of course, to challenge the admissibility and credibility of the opposition’s experts, and we have successfully challenged opposing experts on many occasions.
Our goal is to provide our clients with a thorough and complete defense while at the same time being conscious of costs. We generally have no more than one or two attorneys handling a matter. If a case requires the attention of more than two lawyers, however, we have the depth and resources to meet the needs of the client.

By Practice Area
The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. Memberships and offices in legal fraternities and legal societies, technical and professional licenses, and memberships in scientific, technical and professional associations and societies of law or field of practice do not mean that a lawyer is a specialist or expert in a field of law, nor do they mean that such a lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer. A description or indication of limitation of practice does not mean that any agency or board has certified such lawyer as a specialist or expert in an indicated field of law practice, nor does it mean that such lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer. All potential clients are urged to make their own independent investigation and evaluation of any lawyer being considered. This disclosure is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Iowa.
