Shownotes

A product intended to ensure safety should not be the source of an injury. In 2023, veteran trial attorney Wesley Ball of Farrar & Ball LLP helped secure a verdict against a car manufacturer that put defective seat belts in their cars. 

In this episode of Just Verdicts, Wes tells host Brendan Lupetin how he prevailed on behalf of a client whose devastating injuries caused by a defective seat belt left him a quadriplegic. Wes recalls how focus groups helped him prepare his trial strategy, the process of picking a Philadelphia jury, and the challenges of anchoring a case for damages in a jurisdiction that does not allow attorneys to suggest an amount of damages to the jury.

Tune in to hear how Wes successfully advocated for his client and made a corporate bad actor pay.
