When product liability becomes an element in an automotive liability matter—such as brakes, airbags, child car seats, or seat belts—the Product Liability practice group at DLD Lawyers is ready the respond. The firm’s automotive product liability experience covers the spectrum from routine general liability claims to complex multi-party, multi-million dollar catastrophic injury claims.
Accidents involving trucks and inland marine transportation policies are also handled by DLD Lawyers.

Given the cosmopolitan nature of the Miami-Dade market, motor vehicle accidents often involve drivers and passengers from across South America, the Caribbean and other parts of the world. DLD Lawyers brings a diversity of language and cultures to better understand and represent international clients.
