Updated to incorporate many recently decided cases and current issues, this easy-to-use doctrinal favorite emphasizes both personal injury torts, including civil rights torts, and non-tort systems of compensation, including social security and workers' compensation. The casebook contains chapters on products liability, current medical malpractice (including a section on nursing home liability), and economic and dignitary torts, such as defamation, privacy, and fraud. Using cases and notes that ask for thoughtful analysis and synthesis, the book presents basic concepts such as duty, negligence, cause, scope of risk, and comparative responsibility; it also investigates current issues, including tort reform and apportionment of responsibility.
