Recent Alabama Tort Reform Measures

Helmsing Leach attorneys Joseph P. H. Babington and Andy Stivender co-authored an article discussing the Alabama Legislature’s recent tort-reform measures.  The new legislation decreases the period of repose for claims against architects, engineers, and builders, reduces the interest rate on money judgments, affects the venue of wrongful death cases, protects non-manufacturer sellers from product liability claims, and changes the standard for the admission of expert testimony.  The article appears in the Fall, 2011 issue of the Alabama Defense Lawyers Association Journal.  Click here to view the article.
