Overview

Torts and Personal Injury Law, fourth edition, is the perfect torts book that is comprehensive, but not too overwhelming to students. Each chapter begins with "The Biggest Mistakes Paralegals Make and How to Avoid Them" feature, inviting the reader to read deeper into each chapter. An overview of tort law for the paralegal who works on personal injury matters is covered over 13 chapters. Topics such as product liability, medical malpractice, and accidents are included. Additional coverage includes general tort law, alternative dispute resolution, negligence, defenses to negligence actions, intentional torts, injuries to property, liability, strict or absolute liability, product liability, special tort actions, and tort investigation. A total of over 75 cases are annotated and include the following hot button issues: malicious prosecution of the Duke University Lacrosse players, toxic mass torts, patient dumping, spoliation of evidence, sexual abuse by clergy, donor egg implantation by same sex couples, spam email fraud, HIPPA, and obesity caused by trans fats from fast food.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I have used Okrent Torts for several years because I like the tone and the substance of the text. The text sets forth the substance in a clear, straightforward manner. The substance is broken down into bite-sized morsels that are fairly easy for the student to digest."
