Craig Goldenfarb Named Chairperson to AAJ's AED Litigation Group

Craig Goldenfarb, a local personal injury lawyer, has been appointed chairperson of the American Association for Justice's Automated External Defibrillator Litigation Group

    PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL, July 02, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Craig Goldenfarb is a personal injury lawyer with offices in West Palm Beach, who has long been a leader in AED litigation. In 1997, Florida law mandated that AEDs be installed in some public locations to save the lives of those suffering from sudden cardiac arrest. However, many property owners have been slow to install the required AEDs, leading to death for many people who could potentially have been saved. In some cases, AEDs are installed but are defective in design, placement, or instructions. AED lawsuits strive to save lives and bring justice to those who wrongfully lost their lives as a result of missing or defective AEDs.

The American Association for Justice (AAJ, formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of American (ATLA)), founded in 1946, is the world's largest trial bar. Its goal is to promote a fair and effective justice system and to help attorneys face off against the most powerful opponents, such as insurance companies, to ensure a fair trial for injured persons. As part of this mission, the AAJ provides many resources to trial lawyers. These resources include informal list servers, document libraries, and litigation groups. Litigation Groups are dedicated groups of lawyers who meet to exchange information about important and challenging types of litigation.

At its February 2009 meeting held in New Orleans, LA, the AAJ decided to form an AED Litigation Group to facilitate information exchange on this increasingly important area of litigation. The AAJ named Craig Goldenfarb chairperson of the AED Litigation Group. His term lasts one year, and his responsibilities include conducting meetings of the AED Litigation Group at the AAJ's annual and semi-annual conventions. He is also responsible for ensuring that AED Litigation Group members have access to the most recent information on this form of litigation, nationwide.
