Tanenbaum Keale LLP associate Timothy R. Freeman will present on August 28, at the New Jersey Defense Association’s 54th Annual Convention on the use and abuse of accident data by the Consumer Products Safety Commission (“CPSC”) and National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (“NEISS”).

Freeman will focus his presentation on the degree to which alleged other similar incident (“OSI”) evidence is discoverable and admissible at the time of trial, and how defense counsel can limit their clients’ exposure to this potentially powerful form of evidence. He will also focus on particular problems associated with OSI evidence obtained from the CPSC and NEISS accident data.

Earlier this summer, Freeman published an article with Law360 on how to address the issues that arise with other similar incident evidence in product liability litigation.
