Damages in Tort is a comprehensive reference guide to the principles underlying the award and calculation of damages following the commission of a tort. It includes reference to up-to-date case law, legislation and Law Commission Reports. The commentary adopts a critical approach, enabling the reader to appreciate the law on damages within a broader social, political and economic context.

This book provides readers with a single accessible source of law and commentary in relation to tortious damages awards, which will provoke a stimulating and questioning examination of the issues of compensation. The discussion of the law on tortious damages includes detailed reference to current case law, legislation and other sources of law and commentary, providing the most up-to-date reference source available on this area of law.

To avoid overlap the subject of damages is approached thematically, examining the rules of quantum as they concern different types of interest, rather than categorising damages by the tort which caused the harm.
