Leading Expert in Product Liability Prevention Shows You How to Protect Your Company - and Improve Your Bottom Line! This is the first book to recognize the devastating effects product liability lawsuits can have on manufacturing corporations worldwide, and the necessity for organizations to understand all the elements of product liability prevention. Taking a proactive approach to describing how to put this type of quality program in place, the author demonstrates how an organization, even with its own non-legal staff, can join the fight against potential product liability actions, and win! Once initiated, the company will have not only gained a whole new level of awareness and education, but it will also have their own product liability teams and experts in place who will help them steer clear of any potential future problems. This new dimension of quality will lead to substantial improvements in many areas of any organization, significantly protect organizations from legal action, and help improve the bottom line. This book should be read by anyone who manufactures and sells products. Mr. Goodden demystifies and clearly explains the legal concepts that form the basis of product liability. By giving a manufacturer's employees easy to understand guidelines on how to start a product liability prevention program, establishing such a program should go a long way toward minimizing a manufacturer's potential liability. -- Kenneth Ross, Bowman and Brooke LLP.
