Charlesworth & Percy on Negligence is the title that provides unrivalled depth of analysis of the torts of negligence and nuisance. It remains the number 1 title as it:


  • Sets out the general principles, covering duty of care, liability and causation
  • Deals with both the standard of care in different situations and areas where strict liability applies
  • Explains what remedies may be available, including damages
  • Focuses on both established areas and developing areas such as psychiatric injuries
  • Provides an essential reference for every negligence case whether it is to do with personal injury, property, or product liability
  • Helps you to establish whether a duty of care exists and if it has been breached, helping you to assess quickly and with confidence whether a cause for action exists
  • Updates you with new statutory duties which means you will know exactly how recent changes apply
  • Shows, through a detailed analysis of case law, how the principles work in specific situations and sets out the implications of new developments to help you take a view on your particular case
  • Covers UK and Commonwealth jurisdictions, letting you see how the law of negligence has been applied in multiple jurisdictions
