David S. Waxman
David Waxman defends companies against products liability litigation, particularly allegations involving catastrophic injury. Businesses ranging from pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers to the makers of household, consumer and industrial products have relied on David to handle these cases in state and federal courts nationwide. This includes both mass tort and multi-district litigation. David also counsels companies on how to minimize risks associated with defective product claims. His approach – both proactively and in court – involves developing a deep understanding of how products are made and how their formulation or design compares to industry practices. He also consults with his clients on marketing materials, product labels and instructions for use to help them minimize the risks of products liability litigation.
David brings more than 30 years of experience as a litigator and trial lawyer to these cases. His many years of handling medical malpractice claims inform his products liability work. His defense of medical providers has exposed him to a wide variety of medical conditions and the modalities used to treat them. Both of these elements are central to defending companies facing allegations that their products injured consumers. David understands that improving patient outcomes is the top priority for life science clients and physicians, and he has exhibited a steadfast commitment to defending them.
