Product Description

This Turning Point: Torts: Proximate Cause identifies the various factual contexts that give rise to extent-of-liability issues, and then examines the different tests courts use to place limits on tort liability. It then applies these tests to the factual scenarios to see how well they work. Three basic approaches are discussed—the risk-foreseeability test, imposing liability based on what a “reasonable defendant” should have anticipated, miscellaneous hindsight tests, and the duty-risk test, which makes extent of liability a question of law. It also covers how these approaches square with notions of economic efficiency, corrective justice, and the smooth functioning of the judicial process.

Table of Contents includes:
An Introduction to The Mysteries of Proximate Cause;
From Casablanca to the Buffalo River, via East New York and Sydney Harbor;
Into the Crucible-Part I;
Into the Crucible-Part II;
Beyond Negligence;
Whither Proximate Cause (Scope of Liability)?
