In addition to case examples, Colleen also provides answers, in this radio segment, to many of the questions that arise in product liability cases, such as: “Can medical devices like artificial joints be the subject of a product liability case?”, “What role does the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) play in protecting the public from faulty food and drugs?”, and “What sort of evidence and/or witnesses might be necessary to be successful in a product liability case?”
