    July 20, 2011 – To recover from an injury caused by a defective product, plaintiffs now must prove a manufacturer rejected a reasonable alternative design that would have reduced the foreseeable danger. In this video, Wisconsin Lawyer author Jessica Ozalp explains that the adoption of this new test of defectiveness is among the biggest changes to Wisconsin’s products liability law.

    Ozalp co-authored the article, “A New Era: Products Liability Law in Wisconsin,” with Timothy Edwards, which appears in the July Wisconsin Lawyer magazine.
