Description

Taking a case approach, this proven book provides an accessible overview of tort law for paralegals who work on personal injury matters. Hypothetical scenarios in every chapter demonstrate how abstract tort law pertains to real life accidents and injuries. In addition, over 75 annotated cases featuring hot button issues give readers an opportunity to apply key concepts to the types of cases they will encounter on the job. Built-in learning aids include problems, projects, a running glossary of legal terms, outlines, chapter summaries, and review questions. Now fully updated throughout, the Fifth Edition includes a new chapter on negligence, new content, and new chapter-opening features titled "The Biggest Mistakes Paralegals Make and How to Avoid Them." Each of these unique vignettes illustrates a dilemma, an ethical lapse, or another unfortunate experience that actually happened.
