The work also addresses mass toxic torts and examines emerging actions related to nanotechnology and hydraulic fracturing.

Call Number: KF8925.T67 T69 2013
ISBN: 1627221271
Publication Date: 2013
Trying a toxic tort case is very different from other high-stakes litigation. This practice-focused guide explores the specific and often unique elements that distinguish this type of litigation, including the differing theories of liability and damages and the key procedural and substantive defenses to toxic tort claims. Other topics include scientific and medical evidence and causation, case strategy, trial management, settlement considerations, and causation standards that apply in four regions of the country, reviewing the standards that apply in every state.
