The foremost guide to this complex area of the law, Charlesworth and Percy on Negligence provides exhaustive reference for practitioners and academics. It offers unrivalled depth of analysis into the torts of negligence and nuisance. Building on the excellence of previous editions, it focuses on the considerable body of new case law that has emerged since the previous edition as well as recent legislative changes.

This book is the definitive work on negligence brought fully up-to-date; contains comprehensive analysis of case law with extensive footnotes, including:-

  • The 3rd Cumulative Supplement was published in August 2009
  • The 2nd Cumulative Supplement was published in August 2008
  • The 1st Supplement was published in August 2007
  • The Main Work was published in August 2006
  • the decision in Via System North Shields Ltd which overturned 180 years of jurisprudence on dual vicarious liability;
  • provides the latest information on general principles, notably recent causation cases such as Chester v Afshar and Gregg v Scott;
  • includes a new section on stress;
  • features a complete rewrite of Rylands v. Fletcher given that the distinction between nuisance and negligence has now effectivly disappeared;
  • considers legislative developments and their implications, including recent Regulations introducing statutory duties of care;
  • deals with damages;
  • remains a core text for both the UK and Commonwealth countries, covering case law from Commonwealth jurisdictions.
