See my recent post at our firm site on Wisconsin Zimmer Persona knee implant recall lawsuits. Sometimes what a consumer thinks might be a medical malpractice case can prove to be a products liability case. These recalled Zimmer Persona knee implants are making a lot of orthopedic surgeons look bad.
Jurors who hear how a trucking company chose to hire unqualified drivers or to give little or no training or supervision get concerned. They see there has been a failure at the trucking company. They see the trucking company is not protecting us from bad truck drivers. Thus, companies want to avoid genuine accountability for the consequences of their choices and to hide those choices from a jury by "stipulating to liability."
For example, say prior to a crash a truck driver did something bad and the company chose to ignore it. No trucking company wants a jury to know that. So, the company concedes its driver's fault in causing a crash to avoid having the bad facts put in evidence. Before trial, company lawyers argue to the judge that evidence of the bad facts is no longer admissible and unfortunately sometimes they succeed in hiding the facts. The company then comes to trial begging for mercy while, at the same time, attacking the crash victim and blaming everything but the crash for the victim's damages. The hope is to avoid a showing at trial that the crash was foreseeable and the company failed to protect the public.
Though this strategy may work to a certain extent, I believe in the uncompromising integrity of Wisconsin's jury system. I am thankful that more often than not, our jurors decide theses cases
the right way.
