In product liability litigation, the manufacturer of an allegedly dangerous product or drug must be prepared to defend the company in multiple jurisdictions at the same time. Pretrial discovery is always a daunting task, with potentially hundreds of lawsuits filed across the country over a single product or drug. These are the types of cases where a deposition services provider with national reach like Esquire Deposition Solutions is invaluable. Since 1978, 98 percent of AMLAW 100 law firms have partnered with us to gain the reporting expertise and case management services necessary for high-stakes product liability litigation.
A product liability claim may proceed on multiple, and often novel theories of recovery, putting pressure on litigation counsel to be both rigorous and nimble when developing litigation strategy. Longer and more complex discovery processes involve heavy documentation.
There are many reasons why a product may be unlawfully defective—for example, poor design, faulty assembly, or flawed marketing. Pretrial discovery can be a long, painstaking process as litigation counsel researches the product’s development and learns what may or may not have caused an alleged defect.
Between consumers and the multitude of employees involved in a product’s various stages of production and distribution, there is a long list of people who may be found at fault in a product liability case. Working with large volumes of clients, expert and lay witnesses, and interested parties increases a case’s complexity.
