    "The hallmark of a successful products liability case is the investigation. While some are content to urge involvement of competent experts and rest, jurors are won over by the witness who actually swings the hammer or applies the cords to the tires or conducts the safety checklist or maintains the machine. The juries want to hear not from the academician but from their neighbor or colleague. It's our job to find that witness, locate that document and leave no stone unturned in the process."
