Tennessee personal injury and wrongful death lawyers may be interested in my newest book, Compendium of Tennessee Tort Reform Statutes and Related Case Law, 2009-2013 (2nd ed.)
The title says it all: the 180+ page book is a collection of Tennessee tort reform statutes and the cases interpreting those statutes. The case law citations are current through September 15, 2013. Hundreds of the first edition of the book were sold last year and interest remains high this year.
The fact of the matter is that Tennessee tort law is slowly being codified and those tort lawyers who ignore statutory changes in the law will quickly find themselves in trouble. Simply skimming the Table of Contents in this book might help you avoid bringing a claim that either no longer exists or that has been severely limited under the revised law. (By the way, one of those new statutes provides that if a motion to dismiss is granted your client may be held liable for up to $10,000 of the defendant’s attorneys’ fees.)
The book is only $40.00, plus shipping, handling and sales tax. You can order Compendium of Tennessee Tort Reform Statutes and Related Case Law, 2009-2013 (2nd ed.) by clicking on the link.
