Utah Auto Law is the first and only comprehensive treatise on Utah's law of auto insurance and accident liability, covering every aspect involved in the settlement of an auto personal injury claim. Not only does this treatise discuss in great and meticulous detail the core legal issues of auto accident law (e.g., insurance coverage, bad faith, damages, traffic law); it also discusses in similar detail tangential issues (e.g., negligent entrustment, subrogation, exclusive remedy) that can arise in some cases. Utah Auto Law provides for both plaintiff and defense perspectives, and is designed to serve attorneys, judges, and claims adjusters. With its detailed table of contents and concise text, this single-volume treatise is as handy as it thorough -- readers will find it indispensable in both the office and the courtroom.

This is the first comprehensive study of the history, politics, and economics of the insurance industry in the United States. It is designed as a theoretical challenge to the conventional wisdom in political economy which says that regulation benefits the regulated. In fact, Meier shows that because the insurance industry is far too divided to impose its will on the regulatory system, the political economy of regulation is actually the product of a complex interaction of industry interests, consumer groups, insurance regulations, and political elites. Using both historical and quantitative approaches, the author examines a variety of insurance issues including the development of insurance regulation; the impact of regulation on the availability and price of insurance; the stringency of state regulation; and the product liability insurance crisis of 1985-86. The book concludes with a series of recommendations for reforming the regulation of insurance.
A comprehensive examination into the frightening history of serial homicide—including information on America’s most prolific serial killers. In this unique book, Peter Vronsky documents the psychological, investigative, and cultural aspects of serial murder, beginning with its first recorded instance in Ancient Rome through fifteenth-century France on to such notorious contemporary cases as cannibal/necrophile Ed Kemper, Henry Lee Lucas, Ted Bundy, and the emergence of what he classifies as the “serial rampage killer” such as Andrew Cunanan. Vronsky not only offers sound theories on what makes a serial killer but also makes concrete suggestions on how to survive an encounter with one—from recognizing verbal warning signs to physical confrontational resistance. Exhaustively researched with transcripts of interviews with killers, and featuring up-to-date information on the apprehension and conviction of the Green River killer and the Beltway Snipers, Vronsky’s one-of-a-kind book covers every conceivable aspect of an endlessly riveting true-crime phenomenon.

Automobile Insurance Subrogation: In All 50 States is the most thorough, comprehensive, and ambitious anthology of subrogation-related legal information and insurance resources ever put to paper. It is the last and most anticipated of the subrogation trilogy, and a book which will serve as the “bible” for any insurance company writing personal lines or commercial auto policies. It is destined to become the standard work and reference for attorneys, insurance companies, and subrogation industry professionals. Every year there are more than 7 million auto accidents in the United States with a financial toll of more than $300 billion. Nearly 3 million people are injured and 42,636 people are killed. In the overwhelming majority of these accidents there is at least one party at fault. For virtually every one of these accidents, a policy of automobile insurance provides some sort of claim payments or benefits. In the vast majority of those claims, one or more insurance policies and/or applicable state law grants the insurer a right of subrogation against a negligent third party whose carelessness caused the accident. This book is the bible on subrogating those claims. This book covers the nuts and bolts of auto subrogation in all 50 states, covering every topic imaginable -- including PIP, Med Pay, UM/UIM, property claims, deductible reimbursement, no-fault subrogation and more. It surveys the laws of every state and provides descriptions of every type of auto coverage imaginable, as well as the statutory, case law, and regulatory authority governing every aspect of auto subrogation. If you have subrogation responsibility involving auto claims, you need this book. It universally covers issues which are indelibly interwoven into the business of auto insurance, including a complete treatment of the laws of all 50 states and the District of Columbia relating to: • Basic and Statutory Subrogation Rights • Mandatory vs. Optional Insurance Coverage • No-Fault Laws, PIP, Mini-Torts, and Loss Transfer Laws • Tort Limitations • Medical Payments Coverage and Subrogation • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage and Subrogation • Collision/Property Subrogation • Release of Tortfeasor by Insured • Accord and Satisfaction: Accepting Partial Payments from Tortfeasor • Made Whole Doctrine • Common Fund Doctrine • Economic Loss Doctrine • Deductible Recovery and Reimbursement • Collateral Source Rule • Contributory Negligence/Comparative Fault • Seat Belt Laws and Defenses • Rental Cars, Loaner Vehicles, and Test Drivers • Bailment/Parking Lot Liability • Negligent Entrustment • Facing Multiple Claims In Excess of Liability Policy Limits • Conflict of Laws/Interstate Subrogation • Recovery of Attorney’s Fees and Costs • Statutes of Limitations It is a complete treatment -- A to Z -- of virtually every issue which the insurance claims or subrogation professional will face in the area of automobile insurance.

John Harrison, ein schottischer Uhrmacher, setzte sich ein ehrgeiziges und unmöglich erscheinendes Ziel: eine Methode zu ersinnen, die es Seeleuten ermöglicht, den genauen Längengrad ihrer Position auf See zu bestimmen. Über vierzig Jahre arbeitete Harrison wie besessen an der Herstellung eines perfekten Chronometers und kam schließlich — trotz Missgunst und zahlreicher Anfeindungen — zum Erfolg. Dava Sobels in luzider Prosa erzählte Geschichte dieser wissenschaftlichen Gralssuche wurde ein überwältigender internationaler Erfolg.
Litigation Road: The Story of Campbell v. State Farm examines the 25-year history of a case that began as a tragic auto accident during the Memorial Day weekend of 1981. Before the case was effectively concluded in 2005, it would produce not only a hotly contested negligence trial but also a path-breaking insurance bad faith case that resulted in one of the largest punitive damages awards in history. Along the way, both the Utah and United States Supreme Courts would make new law regarding settlement, the proper scope of evidence in bad faith litigation, and the constitutional limitations on punitive damages. Following the trail of Campbell litigation provides a unique window on American litigation, illustrating the modern law and context of torts, civil procedure, contracts, evidence, insurance, pretrial litigation, professional responsibility, negotiation and settlement as well as trial practice. Litigation Road provides an excellent overview of the manner in which these many strands of law coalesce around a lawsuit.
