This text for the paralegal course emphasizes personal injury and medical information useful in litigating torts cases. The text has two in-depth chapters on litigation before and during trial. It provides paralegal students with the foundational information on torts and teaches them how to apply the skills they will need when working as personal injury paralegals. The text features teachable and comprehensive coverage, beginning with an introduction to the concept of torts and then moving into each element of negligence.
