A critical analysis of pharmaceutical manufacturers' product liability claims under the Australian consumer law: Interpretation, operation and reform

Tsui, Mabel W. (2016) A critical analysis of pharmaceutical manufacturers' product liability claims under the Australian consumer law: Interpretation, operation and reform. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.

Abstract

This thesis examines the adjudication of pharmaceutical product liability claims under the Australian Consumer Law. Recognising the seminal role that policy and principles have in the interpretation of legislation, this thesis encourages the adoption of a principled approach in the adjudication of statutory pharmaceutical product liability claims in Australia. The principles can be used to critique the current adjudication of pharmaceutical product injury claims while also guiding the determination of future claims. This thesis demonstrates a step forward in streamlining the law in this area, thus fulfilling its objective to reform product liability law in Australia.
