McGregor has been the leading authority on the law of damages for 150 years. It provides comprehensive coverage of the law, from detailed consideration of the general principles to specific heads of damages.

Related procedural issues are also covered, bringing the work up-to-date with the impact of the Civil Procedure Rules.

  • The 2nd Supplement was published in October 2016
  • The 1st Supplement was published in December 2015
  • The Main Work was published in July 2014
NEW FOR THE 19th EDITION
  • The impact of the European Directive, implemented in the United Kingdom, on the damages to be awarded in our intellectual property statutory torts is analysed in detail.
  • How the revolutionary Peters v East Midlands SHA, with the Court of Appeal holding that an injured person has an absolute right to choose private care over state-funded care, has progressed is documented.
  • The virtual disappearance of Smith v Manchester awards on account of the new discounting criteria for contingencies of life in the Ogden Tables.
  • Omak Maritime v Mamola Shipping and Grange v Quinn have cast new light on a contracting party’s right to claim for wasted expenditure, and the significance of the controversial Cullinane case is fully re-addressed.
NEW CHAPTERS

There are five new chapters, either new or by division of existing chapters including:

  • The Object Of An Award Of Compensatory Damages
  • Terminology used in Compensatory Damages Awards
  • Vindicatory Damages - pushed into the limelight by the six to three decision of the Supreme Court in Lumba v Secretary of State for the Home Department.
