Product Liability Defenses: A State-by-State Compendium - Print

The latest update to DRI's seminal publication, Product Liability Defenses, is a concise, practice-oriented compilation and discussion of the law of product liability and the various defenses that can be raised to products actions in each state and other jurisdictions. Each chapter is written by top lawyers with deep experience defending product liability actions. The compendium describes and analyzes the various statutes and judicial decisions that govern product liability in each jurisdiction. In addition to traditional product liability defenses, the book analyzes such timely topics as qualification of expert witnesses, spoliation of evidence, joint liability and punitive damages, the impact of the Third Restatement of Torts; Products Liability, and matters of pleading and procedure. As with previous editions, the 2014 edition of the compendium is an indispensable companion for any lawyer called upon to defend a product liability action. It is an especially valuable reference for those representing manufacturers whose products are distributed in many states and foreign nations.

Picture of the productProduct Liability: Warnings, Instructions, and Recalls
For decades, the pre-sale duty to warn and instruct has been and continues to be the basis of much consternation by manufacturers and product sellers and the bane of many defense lawyers trying to defend the myriad of cases alleging a failure to warn. Failing to comply with the post-sale duty to warn, on the other hand, has served as the basis of most punitive damage awards and has been recognized by experts in the area for its expansive nature in the realm of product liability law. The DRI Product Liability Compendium: Warnings, Instructions, and Recalls was assembled to give readers a comprehensive summary of the current U.S. common law, as well as international common, civil, and regulatory law, in both of these areas-pre-sale warnings and post-sale duties to warn or fix a defective product-and to demonstrate how the two areas are inextricably intertwined. Recognizing that product liability has become global and that accidents, court rulings, regulatory activities, and settlements anywhere in the world can be easily discovered, it is clear that manufacturers and product sellers must consider all geographical areas in which they sell their products when deciding how to comply with pre-sale and post-sale duties and how to defend claims and litigation based on these duties.
