Inside the Minds: Settling Products Liability ClaimsOn September 1, 2012 by Schnader
Keith E. Whitson authored the chapter “Early Resolution of Product Liability Claims” for the book Inside the Minds: Settling Products Liability Claims to be released in September 2012 from publisher Aspatore Books. Mr. Whitson’s chapter focuses on effective management of product liability claims from a defense perspective with an eye toward early resolution. He first identifies certain features of product liability claims that may impact settlement strategy and then discusses methods to prepare for both settlement and trial, and suggested techniques for settlement negotiations. Finally, Mr. Whitson identifies some measures that companies can take proactively to reduce exposure to product liability claims and place them in a better position when such claims arise.
