Liability law is expanding in many countries and areas. While its expansion may seem beneficial in terms of remedying litigants' losses, this development is potentially worrisome. Expanding liability may affect the availability of useful goods and services and have a negative impact on insurability.Those in various countries concerned with these potential negative effects have commenced researching techniques to keep liability law within reasonable and sustainable limits. This book uses eight sample cases, borrowed from the leading case law on the subject, to shed light on the techniques used to limit liability expansion in respective countries.The topical nature of the subject and the comparative analysis make this a unique work of interest to academics, students, law-makers, and other practitioners concerned with the expansion of liability law.
