Preventable Injury and Disease in America by Harry Philo

Harry Philo, who served as AAJ president from 1980-81, sought to educate lawyers about the importance of tort law and its impact on our society. After earning his law degree in 1959 while working on the assembly line at the Ford Rouge Plant, he was thoroughly committed to exposing and eliminating unreasonable privileges and immunities in the law.

Harry wrote Preventable Injury and Disease in America, which AAJ published in 1988. This gem of a book is written by a lawyer deeply committed to the elimination of what he called the “legal license to kill and maim.”
