Summary

Summary

The Law of Personal Injury explores the area of law that involves "tortious conduct" -- that is, conduct which is wrongful. This handy guide examines three general aspects of liability in personal injury law -- negligence, intential tort, and strict liability. Medical malpractice and products liability are also covered. A useful appendix provides sample documents, applicable statutes, and other pertinent information and data. A glossary is also included.

The Legal Almanac series serves to educate the general public on a variety of legal issues pertinent to everyday life and to keep readers informed of their rights and remedies under the law. Each volume in the series presents an explanation of a specific legal issue in simple, clearly written text, making the Almanac a concise and perfect desktop reference tool. All volumes provide state-by-state coverage. Selected state statutes are included, as are important case law and legislation, charts and tables for comparison.
