Without assuming prior legal knowledge, books in the Directions series introduce and guide readers through key points of law and legal debate. Questions, diagrams, and exercises help readers to engage fully with each subject and check their understanding as they progress. The remedies for torts begin with financial compensation for both pecuniary and non-pecuniary losses, but also include injunctions. Compensation can be claimed by the injured party and also their survivors and dependants following death. Tort compensation is normally paid as a lump sum and will be liable to various deductions. This chapter also discusses how limitation of actions will be a factor which can influence the injured parties’ ability to bring an action in tort.
