Product Liability: When does the Individual Assume the Risk?

  • William W. May
Part of the Advances in Risk Analysis book series (AEMB, volume 220)


When, on what grounds, and to what extent do we or should we hold individuals responsible for their own actions in product liability cases? How do we separate cases in which the victim could not have exercised any control over the harm or injury suffered from those in which the victim could have avoided or minimized the harm? How do we assign degrees of responsibility and consequent liability?
