Products cases can be intimidating. There’s a monster defense with an unlimited budget, it’s going to be a cage match until the end, and there are no guarantees of success. So you have to be willing to go the distance. 

In this episode of Colorado Trial Lawyer Connection, host Keith Fuicelli is joined by experienced products liability attorneys Brad Holmes of Bradly J. Holmes, PC and Mike Blanton of Gerash Steiner Blanton, P.C.. Brad and Mike recently obtained a verdict of over $56 million ($45M of which in punitive damages) on a product defect case against Ford Motor Company in federal court in Colorado Springs.

Tune in as Brad and Mike discuss making product defect claims against automakers, how to rebut defensive theories, and Ford’s ongoing bad behavior that led to the punitive damages award.
