Peter Cane is Distinguished Professor of Law at the Australian National University College of Law. His main research interests are in the law of obligations especially tort law: public law especially administrative law: and legal theory.The definitive text on personal injury law now updated to take into account recent significant changes in the law.Besides giving an account of the technicalities of personal injury law this book explains how the tort system works in practice how it relates to the social security system the criminal injuries compensation scheme and personal and liability insurance.Besides giving an account of the technicalities of personal injury law this book explains how the tort system works in practice how it relates to the social security system the criminal injuries compensation scheme and personal and liability insurance.Since publication of the seventh edition of this seminal text personal injury law has witnessed momentous changes. A major overhaul of the social security system began in 2012 and the Equality Act 2010 significantly modifies antidiscrimination law and its impact on the disabled. But perhaps the most important legal developments have affected the financing and conduct of personal injury claiming and the operation of the claimsmanagement industry. This new edition takes account of all this activity while setting it into a wider and longer perspective. Complaints that Britain is a compensation culture and that the tort system is out of control are explained and assessed and options for further change are explored. Through the turmoil and controversy the tort system remains a central feature of the legal and social landscape. The books enduring central argument for its radical reform remains as compelling as ever.Part I. The Issues in Perspective: 1. Introduction: surveying the field: Part II.
