Georgia Law of Torts 2018 edition

Thomson Reuters has just published the 2018 edition of the leading personal injury trial treatise Georgia Law of Torts - Trial Preparation and Practice, authored by John Hadden and Kenneth Shigley. This book, relied upon by lawyers and judges across the state of Georgia, has been cited in decisions by the Georgia Supreme Court, Georgia Court of Appeals, and United States District Courts in Georgia.

The 2018 edition contains a significant amount of new material from last year's edition, including an all-new chapter of legal forms, including complaints, motions, and notices that are critical to civil practice, and particularly personal injury and wrongful death cases, in Georgia. Other new material includes:

  • Discussion of personal injury claims and lawsuits involving rideshare services like Uber and Lyft
  • Recent developments in premises liability law, including recent case law concerning immunity under the Recreational Property Act
  • Reimbursement of health insurance benefits under the Federal Employees Health Benefit Act (FEHBA) based on new guidance from the United States Supreme Court
  • Issues concerning statutes of limitation
  • Vanishing venue in cases involving consent judgments of one defendant
  • New appellate court rules
  • Attorney advertising
  • Notice requirements to automobile insurance companies of claims, particularly in cases involving uninsured (and underinsured) motorist coverage
  • Attorney fee disputes

The book also covers the latest significant cases affecting Georgia civil, personal injury, and wrongful death practice. It is available directly from Thomson Reuters in book and electronic form.

"Working with John was my first experience with the legal system. John explained everything thoroughly to me and helped me weigh the pros and cons of each potential decision. He was readily available whenever I had a question or a concern about my case. I would highly recommend John to anyone in need of legal representation. He is professional yet still very down to earth.”
