Damages for psychiatric injuries
Butler, Desmond A. (2004) Damages for psychiatric injuries. Australian legal monographs. The Federation Press, Australia, New South Wales, Annandale.
Damages for Psychiatric Injuries offers a critique of liability for psychiatric injury in Australia and England. Author Des Butler examines current day understandings of psychiatric medicine, evaluates the legitimacy of past and current approaches to limiting liability, and examines the policy considerations which promote such limits. Butler also analyses the recommendations of the 2002 Ipp Panel's Review of Negligence in Australia and resulting legislation.
Succinct and readable, the book sets out a preferred approach to dealing with claims for psychiatric injuries, which recognises the scientific advances of recent times and reflects good legal reasoning.
