Practice/Industry Group Overview

MehaffyWeber defends major corporations in products liability and premises liability suits brought by plaintiffs alleging personal injury and property damage from environmental and occupational exposure to a variety of products. The firm has extensive experience in defending claims involving products which allegedly contain such toxic substances as asbestos, silica, coke dust, talc, cadmium, chromium, manganese, beryllium, butadiene, formaldehyde, chlordane, vinyl chloride, various herbicides, and benzene, among others. The firm uses up to date technology and efficient management practices to successfully defend large dockets. We recognize that some cases should be tried and we welcome the opportunity to try the case and our attorneys have extensive trial experience.

In addition to the firm's extensive involvement in major toxic tort cases that include large numbers of plaintiffs and defendants, MehaffyWeber presently coordinates the regional defense for several manufacturers and represents other clients on a statewide basis. Since the implementation of asbestos and silica MDL statutes in Texas, Sandra Clark and Barbara J. Barron, members of the court advisory committees, have taken a leadership role in these MDL's with Barbara Barron leading both MDL's in a statutorily required dismissal effort to clear Texas courts of "inactive" asbestos and silica cases.
