This chapter of Personal Injury: Actions, Defenses, Damages deals generally with actions, and defenses to those actions, based on negligence, nuisance, warranty, or strict tort liability by an injured person or the injured person's legal representative against the possessor, user, manufacturer, or retailer of an inflammable or explosive substance. It also discusses injuries arising out of the storage and transportation of inflammable substances. In addition, the chapter deals with the liability of governmental entities, as well as the effect of statutory regulation of inflammable substances.
Personal Injury: Actions, Defenses, Damages (Matthew Bender) is a comprehensive, national encyclopedia of personal injury law. Alphabetically arranged chapters cover over 100 different types of "fact patterns" encountered in personal injury cases. In addition, each chapter provides coverage of potential actions, defenses and damages, as well as forms, such as allegations, sample complaints, checklists, and sample discovery requests.
