The article analyses the contribution made to the debate on causal uncertainty by the volume 'Uncertain Causation in Tort Law', edited by Miquel Martín-Casals and Diego M Papayannis. After a brief sketch of the contents of the volume, the paper explores its main strengths, that is: (1) the comparative picture of rules on uncertain causation that the book draws, (2) the emphasis it places on the mass dimension of uncertain causation cases as well as on its procedural consequences, and (3) the analysis it undertakes of the many actors and factors affecting approaches to problems of uncertain causation in (mass) tort litigation.

Abstract

The article analyses the contribution made to the debate on causal uncertainty by the volume 'Uncertain Causation in Tort Law', edited by Miquel Martín-Casals and Diego M Papayannis. After a brief sketch of the contents of the volume, the paper explores its main strengths, that is: (1) the comparative picture of rules on uncertain causation that the book draws, (2) the emphasis it places on the mass dimension of uncertain causation cases as well as on its procedural consequences, and (3) the analysis it undertakes of the many actors and factors affecting approaches to problems of uncertain causation in (mass) tort litigation.
