7/31/2010 · Product Liability
An attorney involved with crate litigation might readily recognize the need for a packaging expert, yet, not be sufficiently aware of the specific knowledge and capabilities that best qualify that expert.

8/20/2007 · Product Liability
A more appropriate term would be packaged product liability, because a packaged product consists of product + package, and either component (or both) can incur allegations of negligence, strict liability, and failure to warn

Authors note: I am a nightclub security expert witness. I've never worked in a bar. What qualifies me as an expert is my decades-long experience in security management. Security personnel are known under many different titles such as, most commonly, bouncers but they are also called ushers, greeters, door men, crowd control specialists, etc. The truth, however, is that there are basic tenants to any security program, regardless of business environment, and bars and nightclubs are no different with the exception of alcohol. Bouncer = Security.

Employee theft is nearly 50% of the losses for retailers. It's a $600 Billion crime across the nation for all businesses and growing. Employers are sometimes reluctant to discuss this topic or even acknowledge its existence but to adopt that approach will lead to financial disaster.

Traffic accidents at signalized intersections are common where both drivers claim the other driver is at fault.
