Lex Machina’s Legal Analytics for Product Liability Litigation enables attorneys and companies they represent to make data-driven decisions about federal product liability case strategy and tactics. Product liability litigators are now able to leverage our Legal Analytics to uncover strategic insights into product liability cases they care about in federal courts.

Now you can get quantified insights about judges, courts, law firms, attorneys, parties, and expert witnesses involved in a case, as well as case trends, to gain a competitive advantage. Lex Machina illuminates whether a presiding judge has expertise with MDL cases, and provides actual judicial rulings about expert witness admissibility. Until now, this information was not easily available to product liability litigators.
