The Pathology of Products Liability and Organizational Negligence

TASA ID: 1648

After 50 years of work with more than 700 companies, I have amassed significant evidence that organizations exhibit the same traits as living organisms. Some are born healthy. Best case, the principals are innately focused on the health of their employees and the needs of their customers. If the win-win vision is inculcated in their culture they stay healthy through the life cycle of the business.

Others are born with latent diseases. The principals are focused on revenue and market share. Business processes evolve without a master wellness program. Sooner or later the hidden disease or a pathogen enters the organization and the health of the company wains. These are the companies that are devastated when they are served with a lawsuit. The principals and the organization wear the scars of the lawsuit forever.


LEVERAGING YOUR CASE WITH THE AID OF AN EXPERT IN WORLD MEDICAL, TECHNICAL AND SCIENTIFIC LITERATURE

TASA ID:


In preparing and researching a case, have you ever felt frustrated by the depth and detail of the technology and medical terminology in medical malpractice or product liability actions?  You may be thinking that if you had wanted to pursue medical or scientific professions that you would have done so!  You may feel that if you were simply presented with a clear overview of the facts of the situation, that you could deal with it, but the case begins at the advanced specialist level and it’s hard to get a handle on it. However, help is available.  

Airmanship in the Age of Automation

TASA ID: 9740

On a cloudy morning, at a major US airport, a regional jet is cleared for the ILS approach.  The ceiling is reported at 600 feet, with visibility around five statute miles. As the plane turns final, a 30-knot tailwind pushes it faster than expected to the final approach segment, with the crew racing to descend.  Realizing the plane is still above glideslope, the first officer turns off the auto-pilot and dives to catch it.  The rate of descent increases as the plane passes 2,000 feet. It's not an everyday approach, but the beginning of an accident report - one that will never be written.

Part 2: Proximate Cause in Warnings Cases

Plaintiff’s Side

TASA ID: 4009

In many product liability cases there is something missing from an existing warning and instruction - some safety information which arguably the plaintiff did not know at the time of the accident. It may be relatively straight forward to figure out whether or not the existing warning was defective by reference to items like the ANSI Z353 Standards, signal word, color, conspicuity, language, grade level word choice, whether or not the warning adequately explains the hazard and the consequences of not heeding the warning and whether or not the warning explains what to do to avoid the hazard.  All of these are items which in general make a warning more likely to be noticed, read, understood and heeded.  That is exactly why the standards and authorities require them.
