Damages and Compensation Culture: Comparative Perspectives.
Damages and Compensation Culture: Comparative Perspectives
Edited by Eoin Quill and Raymond J. Friel
Hart Publishing, Oxford
Originating in a conference held at the University of Limerick, Quill and Friel present essays on damages and compensation culture. It focuses on damages in personal injury claims in England and Wales, Canada, Australia, Ireland, and continental Europe. They aim to first clarify the relationship between tort damages for personal injuries and the social values that the law seeks to reflect and to balance, then to critically assess tort reforms (both proposals for reform and actual complemented reforms) in light of how they advance or hinder chose values.
