Recent developments in products liability law in the USA

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The author shows that, after the great evolution of U.S. product liability law in the seventies, a backlash was inevitable. These restrictions are demonstrated by reference to state statutes, court decisions, court procedures, and theories. The author argues that lobbying of powerful interest groups eventually was responsible for stopping and even reversing the expansion of products liability law.
