Tort law is the law of civil wrongs. In legal practice, tort law is dominated by claims for personal injury and death arising out of motor and workplace accidents. However, the scope of tort law is much broader. It includes other remedies for interference with bodily integrity and remedies for interference with interests in land and goods. In addition, the tort of negligence provides a remedy for harm of a non-physical kind in a wide range of circumstances, for example, psychiatric injury and pure economic loss. In contemporary Australian law, there is no closed list of civil wrongs and tort law is in a state of constant agitation in response to changing societal expectations of responsibility for loss causing activities. The fourth edition of this established casebook seeks, through an authoritative selection of cases, to illuminate the principles of contemporary Australian tort law and to capture the underlying trends in the development of the law.
