Failed Hips and Harmful Drugs: The Product Liability Podcast

I’ve been writing on this product liability website for three years. I have now published over 200 articles, and two ebooks, and a page with definitions, and another page providing links to other useful websites, and yet another page where I answer “frequently asked questions” about medical devices and prescription medications, and a bunch of other information.
