Description

This new edition of Owen’s Products Liability Law refines and updates this classic study of products liability law in action. It examines in depth the nature and history of products liability in America and abroad; theories of liability, product defectiveness, and causation; proof of defect and cause, with a Daubert emphasis; key defenses, including federal preemption; and a thorough inquiry into many special types of products liability cases, including automotive and pharmaceutical litigation. Throughout, the treatise explores the underlying tensions and debates, explains the impact of the Restatement of the Law of Torts, Third: Products Liability, highlights classic and important recent cases, and reveals how reform statutes alter this ever-shifting field of law.
