As part of the American Association for Justice's programming of substantive sessions at its Annual Meeting in Boston, Partners Bob Langdon and Brett Emison, spoke on aftermarket vehicle defect litigation. The audience of the nation's top plaintiff's attorneys was treated to a presentation on the dangers of recreational vehicles, limousines, ambulances, police cruisers and other modified vehicles.
Aftermarket vehicle defects often aren't identified and lawsuits aren't pursued, resulting in a missed opportunity to obtain the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. For more than three decades, clients and referring attorneys across the country have worked with Langdon & Emison attorneys in identifying and litigating aftermarket vehicle cases. Bob and Brett have worked on aftermarket vehicle cases for a combined 45 years in practice, and bring a wealth of industry knowledge to the topic of how to identify the defect and how to show that a vehicle's alteration contributed to an automobile's lack of safety.
According to the AAJ, "Trial attorneys are committed to ensuring that all people—individuals, families, patients, workers and consumers—can seek justice in our nation’s courtrooms.
The AAJ is the preeminent organization in America trying to fight for that right. Trial attorneys seek a balanced civil justice system, and the AAJ advocates for tough laws to hold industries and corporations accountable when they withhold information that can harm or kill. Both Bob and Brett are members of the AAJ's Leaders Forum.
Langdon & Emison partner Brett Emison will present at the American Association for Justice 2016 Annual Convention on July 25 in Los Angeles. Mr. Emison will be featured on a distinguished panel of speakers at the Products Liability Section Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Program, presenting on the topic of “Evaluating Product Liability Cases: Do I Take the Case or Not”?
