Don't let common, yet avoidable mistakes leave your company vulnerable to a lawsuit.
In the medical products industry, businesses usually recognize the need for product liability protection in order to avoid some lawsuits, but you might be surprised to know that building component or custom-engineered products, servicing equipment, remanufacturing or selling used equipment can put your company at risk for a lawsuit.
Any time you conduct business, you are open to legal exposure. What other areas are leaving your business vulnerable?
Despite using common sense, business owners routinely violate laws by:
> Copyright, patent or trademark infringement
> Disregarding employee rights
> Improper business structure or documentation
> Failing to file taxes properly
