Clients facing Product Liability actions report larger claims in a broader array of industries. A growing number of companies are selling their products on a global scale—meaning exponentially more customers using their products. Meaning exponentially more customers are exposed to potential product-related issues, providing more opportunity for plaintiff’s counsel to identify Product Liability cases—which can quickly result in a class action.
