DecisionQuest National Juror Attitude Survey:

General Attitudes Towards Product Liability

What's Inside

DecisionQuest’s National Juror Attitudes Survey Report: Product Liability is designed to provide litigators and their clients with insight and analysis about jurors and their opinions of government standards, product testing, profitability decisions and operator responsibility.

The data we present tells a story of jurors believing that most injuries are the fault of the users themselves, but also wanting to hold manufacturers responsible.  This is, at least in part, due to the perception that manufacturers are greedy and make their decisions based mostly on profits.
