"This book explores the performance of compensation law in addressing the needs of the injured. Compensation procedure can be dangerous to your health and often fails to compensate without aggravation/ creating other problems. This book takes a refreshing and insightful approach to the law of compensation, considering from an interdisciplinary perspective the actual effect of compensation law on people seeking compensation. Tort law, workers' compensation, medical law, industrial injury law and other schemes are examined and unintended consequences for injured people are considered. These include ongoing physical and mental illness, failure to rehabilitate, the impact on social security entitlements, medical care as well as the impact on those who serve - the lawyers, administrators, medical practitioners etc. All are explored in this timely and fascinating book. Contributors include lawyers, psychologists, and medical practitioners from multiple jurisdictions including Australia, Netherlands, Canada, Italy and the UK"-- Provided by publisher.
