Alan Herman Obtains Dismissal in Product Liability Fire Case

October 2013
Santa Clara, CA

Alan Herman won a dismissal without payment on behalf of a manufacturer of water heaters in a product liability case pending in Santa Clara, California.

The case arose out of a fire in a Fifth Wheel recreational vehicle which consumed the Fifth Wheel and spread to the homeowner’s residence.  A lawsuit was filed against the manufacturer of the Fifth Wheel and against the dealer originally seeking close to $1 million dollars.  Although the Plaintiff did not name or sue HPTY’s client, they were brought into the case as a cross-defendant.  After substantial discovery and excellent expert witnesses, a resolution of the case was reached involving the dismissal of HPTY’s client.

Alan was assisted by Lisa Lazarus, Ana Portillo, and Todd Wade from the San Francisco office.
