The new edition of Mullany and Handford’s Tort Liability for Psychiatric Damage has been comprehensively revised and expanded with 15 new chapters including all new developments in tort liability law.
Useful for both scholars and practitioners, this work fully explores the issue of tort liability for psychiatric damage (nervous shock). It answers key questions such as, for what kinds of mental damage will a claim lie? Who may claim? And in what circumstances?
This comprehensive reference work covers the leading common law jurisdictions with a focus on Australian, Canadian and English law. The first edition has been oft-cited by courts in the UK, Canada and South Africa.
"The authors ... have produced a work of impressive scholarship, at once indispensable in the future to the practitioner and a source of enlightenment for student and scholar…Their analysis touches all relevant issues in close detail, with unfaltering attention to judicial pronouncements of differing viewpoints from diverse sources. Their style is felicitous and carries the story along without in the least tiring the reader. In all, it is a valuable addition to legal literature."
