History of Product Liability Law
During presidential election years in particular, there is much talk about what is wrong with our civil justice system. Yet many people don’t recognize that our tort law has its foundation in the Bible. Here in the fifth of my video series, The Bible and Our Civil Justice System, I discuss the evolution of modern products liability law from biblical times to today.
Today’s rules reflect the laws established to protect citizens from the risks presented by oxen in biblical times. l also discuss the Bible’s version of construction defect law and the origins of modern uniform building and construction codes.
Please join me as I trace the evolution of today’s product liability law over the past 4,000 years.
