Causation in European Tort Law

Marta Infantino and Eleni Zervogianni are editors of "Causation in European Tort Law," available from Cambridge University Press.  From the blurb:

Through a comprehensive analysis of sixteen European legal systems, based on an assessment of national answers to a factual questionnaire, Causation in European Tort Law sheds light on the operative rules applied in each jurisdiction to factual and legal causation problems. It highlights how legal systems' features impact on the practical role that causation is called upon to play, as well as the arguments of professional lawyers. Issues covered include the conditions under which a causal link can be established, rules on contribution and apportionment, the treatment of supervening, alternative and uncertain causes, the understanding of loss-of-a-chance cases, and the standard and the burden of proving causation. This is a book for scholars, students and legal professionals alike.

  • Examines many causation problems through the use of factual questionnaires, engaging those with a practical interest in the subject
  • Covers sixteen different European jurisdictions, offering a coordinated analysis of each
  • Improves the awareness of all factors affecting the application of causation rules in European jurisdictions

Thanks to Richard Wright for the tip.
