The focus of the essays in this book is on the relationship between compensation culture, social values, and tort damages for personal injuries. A central concern of the public and political perception of personal injuries claims is the high cost of tort claims to society, reflected in insurance premiums, often accompanied by an assumption that tort law and practice is flawed and improperly raising such costs. The aim of this collection is to clarify the relationship between tort damages for personal injuries and the social values that the law seeks to reflect and to balance, then to critically assess tort reforms, including both proposals for reform and actual implemented reforms, in light of how they advance or hinder those values. Reforms of substantive and procedural law in respect of personal injury damages are analyzed, with perspectives from England and Wales, Canada, Australia, Ireland, and Continental Europe. This book will offer valuable insight for anyone interested in the reform of tort law or the tort process in respect of personal injuries.
