Article Abstract

[This abstract is based on the author's abstract.] The price of doing business in America includes the risk of product liability litigation. Potential legal exposure, whether civil, administrative, or criminal, is a legitimate concern for any manufacturer. Embracing and implementing quality concepts, principals and techniques yields numerous rewards in the event of litigation. An attorney called upon to defend a company that has those systems in place will likely have superior resources, materials, and evidence at his or her disposal and be at a distinct advantage to defend the litigation.
