Essential for all tort lawyers handling AIDS cases.

Have you had trouble finding relevant information and cases for your transfusion-associated AIDS litigation? Have you spent hours at the law library, only to return to the office tired, frustrated and empty-handed? Do you wish that someone would make your research--and your life--easier by compiling the information you need about AIDS in one convenient text? If you've answered "yes" to any of these questions, you'll want to order Transfusion-Associated AIDS right away.

Transfusion-associated AIDS litigation has become a particularly complex topic for tort lawyers due to the lack of comprehensive information. What makes fact-finding so difficult? Attorneys conducting research typically encounter a multitude of frustrations, largely because there has been an inconsistency of published outcomes. Additionally, some cases settle before litigation is instituted and more are settled quietly, with defendants insisting on confidentiality orders protecting both the fact of settlement and terms of the agreement.

This invaluable manual can help clear the confusion because it includes all the necessary reference information available. You'll find a representative sampling of case citations and medical literature references that illustrate the issues involved in transfusion-associated AIDS litigation.

Forget wasting time on frustrating research; you'll find the facts you need to prepare your case in Transfusion-Associated AIDS.
