Product description

Annotated Civil Liability Legislation — Queensland, 5th edition, is the essential companion for practitioners engaged in the conduct of negligence claims, whether in a commercial or personal injury context. This well-renowned title is a unique and practical guide to the interpretation and application of the Civil Liability Act 2003 (Qld) and the Civil Liability Regulation 2014 (Qld).

This 5th edition updates and examines the important advances in jurisprudence concerning this legislation. New developments are considered in areas ranging from application and exclusion, breach of duty and causation, to those governing proportionate liability, contributory negligence, liability for institutional child abuse, damages and operation in respect of federal statutory causes of action. The text also contains helpful cross-references to the cognate provisions of the Workers’ Compensation and Rehabilitation Act 2003 (Qld), and provides updates to the ISV calculation tables for both pieces of legislation.

The well-defined annotated format of this text affords practitioners commencement and application information, expert commentary by reference to case law and journal treatment, together with cross-referencing to interstate and federal analogues.
