An Injury Law Constitution

Marshall S. Shapo

  • Written by a renowned injury law scholar and author of numerous articles and books on the subject.
  • Uses current topics such as the compensation plan for the victims of September 11th to show how our injury law reflects deeply held views in American society about risk and injury, indicating how the injury law constitution is a guide to the question of what it means to be an American.
