Products Liability Practice 2019 Edition

This handbook is a valuable tool for attorneys representing both plaintiffs and defendants in products liability actions.

Whether you represent plaintiffs or defendants, this handbook is your essential guide to the products liability case, from who may bring a products liability action and who is subject to liability, to defenses to products liability, discovery, and damages. Products liability is a multifaceted, ever-changing area of the law, requiring practitioners to constantly hone their knowledge of the rules applicable to appeals in products liability actions, the preservation of evidence, and new legislation and caselaw. Revitalize your products liability practice and streamline your case preparation with over 30 forms, checklists, and sample clauses, including a client interview checklist, notices to produce, a retainer agreement, sample language for elements of damages, and a notice of appeal.
