Charlesworth and Percy on Negligence is the principal guide to a complex area of the law, providing unrivalled depth of analysis into the tort of negligence. The second cumulative supplement to the 14th edition brings the main work up to date with all the recent developments including:

The features comprehensively set out the general principles, covering duty of care and liability issues under the tort of negligence including the Christian Brothers test to establish vicarious liability. This work shows how the principles developed through the application of the common law and explains how the law of negligence has been applied in the UK and commonwealth jurisdictions. It also explains what remedies may be available, including damages, and investigates the remoteness of damages as a remedy and the burden of proof in negligence cases. It demonstrates the defences and discharges from liability and the standard of care principle in relation to persons professing some special skill, highways and transport, employee-employer relationship.

This title provides an essential reference for every negligence case whether it is to do with personal injury including resulting in death, property, product liability, and injury caused by animals and death.
