Tort law remains a dynamic field, subject to constant refinement and rethinking. The new Eighth Edition reflects these evolving developments in recent case law and legislative activity, as well as commentary ranging from the ongoing Third Restatement of Torts (Physical Harm) project to the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund. The principal focus of this book is the law of negligence, strict liability, and no-fault as alternative approaches to compensating the victims of accidental harm and creating optimal incentives to safety. This leading casebook covers all major aspects of tort law with expertly edited cases, and original text. It also includes detailed discussions of liability, causation, defamation, privacy, damages, insurance, and tort alternatives.
