Forecasting Product Liability Claims

£12.99

Product description

This hardcover book is in very good condition overall. The cover of the book has no major issues, but does have some very minor fraying issues on some corners, as well as some small visible markings. There is no dust jacket included with this book. Inside, the pages of the book appear to have no issues whatsoever, and certainly none which would impact any ability to read the book or enjoy it.


This selection of papers encompasses recent methodological advances in several important areas, such as multivariate failure time data and interval censored data, as well as innovative applications of the existing theory and methods. Using a rigorous account of statistical forecasting efforts that led to the successful resolution of the John-Manville asbestos litigation, the models in this volume can be adapted to forecast industry-wide asbestos liability. More generally, because the models are not overly dependent on the U.S. legal system and the role of asbestos, this volume will be of interest in other product liability cases, as well as similar forecasting situations for a range of insurable or compensational events. Throughout the text, the emphasis is on the iterative nature of model building and the uncertainty generated by lack of complete knowledge of the injury process. This uncertainty is balanced against the court's need for a definitive settlement, and how these opposing principles can be reconciled. A valuable reference for researchers and practitioners in the field of survival analysis.
