With the shift in Americans’ perception of risk, from a calculation of the benefits compared to the potential harms, to a feeling and how much of that feeling one is willing to tolerate, companies need to understand how the concept of “safety” and the rise of “safety-ism” impact their litigation and trial strategies. There are concrete steps in-house counsel can take to set up the company and company witnesses for success and concrete steps their litigation and trial counsel should take to reduce the impact of “safety-ism” in jury trials.
