2019 Annual Meeting
IMDMC Annual Meeting
Medical Product Mass Tort Litigation:
What is it? How do we prepare for it? How do we defend it?
Medical device manufacturers and product suppliers can often find themselves exposed to very public mass tort litigation cases involving hundreds or thousands of plaintiffs who claim to be similarly injured by a medical product due to a defect or the companies’ negligence. These cases have recently resulted in eye popping jury verdicts in the millions, and sometimes billions of dollars.
Medical product companies must think critically about their policies and procedures to help prepare for and defend against these kinds of bet-the-company claims. Don’t wait until a claim has been filed against your company to make sure you have the right tools in place to defend the safety and efficacy of your medical products!
This year’s IMDMC Annual Meeting will focus on medical product mass tort litigation where our expert panelists will be discussing product liability litigation in the U.S. generally, highlighting what some of the key current trends mean for the industry as a whole, how to manage risk and insurance, how medical product lawsuits affect non-lawyers at life sciences companies, and how companies and counsel can adapt and prepare now.
