Consumer Litigation and Insurance Defense

(Third Edition)
Willy E. Rice

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-63487-095-5, 848 pages


Consumers commence thousands of defective-trade-and-products lawsuits. Many consumers prevail but they never collect damages. Often, insured offenders do not have “deep pockets” and insurers refuse to pay damages on their behalf.

Law schools offer consumer-law courses, yet numerous law students and practicing attorneys never appreciate the significant relationship between consumer law and insurance defense. The absence of casebooks discussing that relationship is the culprit.

Consumer Litigation and Insurance Defense is a novel casebook. It fills that void by presenting a comprehensive analysis of state and federal consumer-law and insurance-defense decisions.
