Product details

Trying a toxic tort case is very different from other high-stakes litigation. Cases are complex, involving large numbers of plaintiffs and defendants with multiple lawsuits brought in more than one jurisdiction, and can entail difficulties in identifying the source of the claimed harm. Toxic tort cases require innovative complex litigation procedures and heavily rely on establishing scientific concepts to resolve causation issues.

Now completely updated and revised, the second edition of Toxic Tort Litigation is a practice-focused guide that explores the specific and often unique elements that distinguish this type of litigation. In part 1, chapters explain the differing theories of liability and damages within the toxic tort context, as well as the key procedural and substantive defenses to toxic tort claims. Others cover the important aspects of scientific and medical evidence and causation, including dealing with the opinions of experts in the context of Daubert or Frye challenges. The book also addresses the important aspects of case strategy, trial management, settlement considerations, and hot topics. In part 2, Toxic Tort Litigation offers invaluable new chapters that focus on the causation standards that apply in four regions of the country, reviewing the various standards that apply in every state.
