Product Description

Personal Injury and the Law of Torts for Paralegals is a basic textbook for the paralegal torts course, emphasizing personal injury and medical information useful in litigating torts cases. It provides paralegal students with the foundational information on torts and to teach them how to apply the skills they will need when working as personal injury paralegals.

The text features teachable and comprehensive coverage, beginning with an introduction to the concept of torts and then moving into each element of negligence.  The book then tackles medical malpractice as a type of negligence.  Intentional Torts are covered next, followed by a chapter on Worker’s Compensation.  The book concludes with chapters on how to discover medical records, tort discovery, and litigation.  An introduction to medicine is provided as an appendix.  All of the topics included in AAfPE’s Model Tort Law syllabus are covered. A special emphasis is given to medical information specifically related to personal injury, including a guide on how to obtain medical records and how to understand those records.

The book provides a wealth of examples, written in a clear, understandable style. A comprehensive Instructor’s Manual includes sample syllabi, chapter overviews, and a test bank.
