This chapter of Personal Injury: Actions, Defenses, Damages deals with actions involving trees. It discusses the liability of an owner or occupier of land for injuries involving trees, including occurrences such as a tree or limb breaking and falling; the fall of a tree caused by cutting of roots or the removal of soil; trees, limbs, or stumps constituting an obstruction; uneven sidewalks caused by tree roots; and the failure to remove a fallen tree. It also considers the liability of government authorities concerning public roadways and sidewalks.
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.
