This book deals with various situations in which one person's negligent act or omission causes another person to suffer an injury which is not to his person or his property, and where the relationship between them is non-contractual. This edition covers major developments such as the acceptance by the House of Lords of the principle of concurrent liability in contract and tort, and the changing face of liability for latent defects in buildings.

  • Describes the various categories of economic loss which the courts have developed and analyses the relevant case law - including leading Commonwealth decisions
  • Deals with the relationship between contract and tort, and the influence of the existence of a contract in tortious negligence cases
  • Takes into account significant recent case law, in particular the distinct shift in the overall policy of the courts, towards claims for pure economic loss and the ascendancy of the concept of 'voluntary assumption of responsibility'.
