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.

Our modern civil justice system has its foundation in the bible and reflects an evolution of beliefs and increased knowledge since the earliest development of western civilization, starting some 4,000 years ago.

Hammurabi, the first king of the Babylonian Empire, is known for one of the first written codes of law in recorded history and the initial presentation of the “Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth” philosophy.

Please join me in my third in a series of videos devoted to understanding the history of the bible and our civil justice system as I discuss the evolution of civil damages, the bible’s version of construction defect law and the first known evidence of uniform building and construction codes.

History of Personal Injury Law and Our Civil Justice System

I often hear people say that something is wrong with our civil justice system. Yet most people don’t recognize that the bible provided the foundation for tort law beginning with the story of human society’s first family,  Adam and Eve, and their sons Cain and Abel, in the fourth chapter of Genesis.

Please watch this second part of my video series, The Bible and Our Civil Justice System. I discuss how law was designed to  incorporate the responsibilities we have to each other and  the importance God ‘s plan places on ensuring that we all have access to justice.
