Understanding Products Liability Law, 2006
This book is an overview of the complex body of products liability case law and statutes that has developed over the past century. The chapters follow a functional approach and begin with the four theories that are the foundation of products liability cases: warranty, misrepresentation, negligence, and strict liability. Separate chapters examine the principal types of product defects and some of the problems involved with providing that the product was defective and that the defect was the cause of the injury. The book also considers the various defenses available in a products liability action and the types of damages that a plaintiff may recover.
The book also contains a number of chapters examining the issues involved in the prosecution of defense of a products liability case. These include researching the case drafting the complaint, interrogatories, and requests to admit facts. Requests for the production of documents, discovery and evidence depositions, protective orders, and discovery enforcement.
