Recovery for Wrongful Death, 4th discusses who may be sued, on whose behalf, on what grounds, for what damages, in which jurisdictions, and which jurisdiction's law will be applied to the case. It includes law on damages, mitigation/minimization of damages, evidence, and defenses (including contributory and comparative negligence, assumption of risk, prior adjudication, compromise, settlement or release, immunities, and others). In addition, this title provides a review of postjudgment reduction of awards by trial and appellate courts, the effect of statutory limitation of rights and remedies (tort "reform" statutes) and strategies for avoiding them or bringing constitutional challenges, and the effect of the U.S. Supreme Court's "constitutionalization" of punitive damages.
