The Standard Edition of the casebook now covers the course in less than 1,000 pages. It includes additions carefully selected from hundreds of cases and statutes decided between 2005 and 2008. New cases illustrate core negligence issues such as the emergency doctrine, negligence per se, foreseeability, actual harm, cause in fact, proximate cause, comparative fault, and assumed risk. New cases also address limited duties, immunities and specialized fields, such as medical malpractice, products liability, governmental immunities, effect of contract on tort, duty to protect the plaintiff from others, and wrongful death and survival actions. References to the Restatement (Third) of Torts are also included.
