Atiyah's Accidents, Compensation and the Lawav Peter Cane469
Now in its ninth edition, Atiyah's Accidents, Compensation and the Law explores the recent and continuous developments in personal injury law by applying social context to the relevant legal principles. Those principles remain in need of radical reform. Updates to the text include discussion of the major changes to the way compensation is calculated and claimed, evolving funding arrangements for personal injury litigation, and dramatic shifts in the claims management industry. Suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate students taking courses in tort law, this new edition balances theory, practice and context. It draws on new legislation, research and case law to offer the reader thought-provoking examples and analysis.

Recensioner i media
'Since the 1970s, Atiyah's Accidents, Compensation and the Law has provided an invaluable counter-narrative to mainstream tort scholarship and this new edition is no exception. The core critique, whilst familiar, is integrated with an updated analysis of the political, social and economic context in which the law, and the system that underpins it, operates. It remains a 'must read' for students.' Annette Morris, Cardiff University
'As it has been from its first edition, this remains the definitive work on liability and compensation for accidental injury. The new editorial team (Goudkamp joining Cane) treads a careful path through the controversies surrounding the alleged 'compensation culture' but never shies from advancing its own, informed and persuasive perspective on the issues.' Ken Oliphant, Deputy Head of School, University of Bristol Law School
'This classic text has provided a continuing source of inspiration for my research and an essential accompaniment to my teaching for the past forty years. In revealing the wider context of tort law it brings the subject to life. Its critique of personal injury litigation remains as important as ever.' Richard Lewis, Cardiff University
