The Law of Product Liability

Front Cover
Andrew Grubb, Geraint G. Howells
Butterworths, 2000 - Products liability - 594 pages
Product liability is a topic of increasing commercial and social importance. This book provides a definitive statement of UK product liability law. Central to this is consideration of the strict liability provisions found in Part 1 of the Consumer Protection Act 1987 and the closely related regulatory rules on product safety. Other aspects include contractual (particularly sale of goods law) and negligence liability, both of which play an important role in product liability litigation. The book also considers the legal aspects of product liability insurance and important procedural matters, such as the possibility for class actions and jurisdiction and choice of law questions. This book is a comprehensive and authoritative exposition of product liability law.
