Overview

"Torts Personal Injury Litigation", 4th Edition provides students with a comprehensive guide to the law of torts. In this 4th edition, Statsky has extended the discussion of paralegal roles within tort litigation. He has also added a chapter on major torts that emphasizes current legal issues and examines the ethics of attorney solicitation. A comprehensive checklist, which includes definitions, defenses, relationships, paralegal roles and research references, is provided for each tort presented. This checklist provides the student with an overview of information and also serves as an on-the-job refresher. Forty-nine pertinent case studies, nineteen of them new to this edition, are included in the text allowing students to examine important court opinions. Among the controversial issues discussed in these court opinions are AIDS, the Oklahoma bombing, computer torts, assistance to the homeless, billion dollar verdicts and settlements, biomedical research and the alleged tort committed by President Clinton that became part of his historic impeachment and Senate trial.
