This popular book provides clear and accessible explanation and interpretation of the current law across the field of negligence. It aims to provide a fresh and critical exposition that, whilst comprehensive, gives particular emphasis to the contemporary scene. It draws upon recent cases and judicial pronouncements and includes references to case law from jurisdictions outside the UK. Professional negligence is covered in detail as it is a rapidly growing area of law.
The law of negligence touches on many areas of professional practice, and is increasingly complex and a growing area of business for solicitors. Consumers are successfully claiming large sums of compensation from healthcare providers, tobacco manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies and each other, all of whom are deemed to have caused harm through neglecting to take due care e.g. through causing accidents, causing or aggravating illnesses, or failing to properly test products or make consumers aware of risk.
Negligence is also a big topic for those dealing with medical and personal injury law, employment law, consumer law, licensing - and this thorough exposition of the subject is an essential addition to the library of any solicitor's firm.
The Law of Negligence was amalgamated with the Law of Nuisance in 2005 so combines commentary on the correlated laws of nuisance and negligence. The book provides a fresh and critical exposition that, whilst comprehensive, gives particular emphasis to the contemporary scene. It is designed to provide practitioners and academics with a clear and accessible explanation and interpretation of all significant judicial pronouncements and legislation across the field of negligence.

An important aspect of The Law of Negligence is that it also deals with the law of nuisance. Although this is consistent with much modern judicial and academic commentary, which favours an integrated approach to the two torts, other negligence works on the market do not, on the whole, provide comprehensive coverage of nuisance cases.
