For the past several years, Mr. Olson's practice has concentrated in the area of product liability defense and he is the head of the practice group in that area. His clients have included Rheem Manufacturing Company and Emerson Electric Corporation. He has developed a particular expertise in litigating cases in which fire origin and cause are central issues.
Mr. Olson's work for Rheem has included defending it nationally in water heater/flammable vapor litigation. As an integral part of the core group of lawyers who handle these challenging burn cases, Mr. Olson has been instrumental in obtaining favorable trial results and dismissals and in negotiating settlements that have been attractive for the client. Mr. Olson's defense work, along with that of his fellow lawyers, has succeeded in reducing dramatically the number of flammable vapor suits brought against Rheem.
Mr. Olson also has extensive experience in cases involving LPG and natural gas explosions, electrocutions and carbon monoxide poisoning.
