Immunities and Defenses for Allegedly Negligent Inspections

Immunities and Defenses for Allegedly Negligent Inspections” appeared in the November, 2005 issue of the Journal of Environmental Health, and was a follow-up to my previous article, “An Introduction to Liability, Negligence, and All Things In Between.” In this article, I address different states’ laws regarding liability of environmental health professionals and encourage environmental health professionals to find out whether your state is a “public-duty-doctrine” state or a pure “immunity” state. Then determine what exceptions apply.
