  • Full description

    First published in 1974, Assessment of Damages for Personal Injury and Death has evolved to provide comprehensive commentary of the general principles of tort law, covering the major tort law reforms in Australia. For the last two decades, this text has been a leading authority in assessment of damages, as evidenced by the many High Court citations. References to the various editions of this work can be found in such well-known torts cases as Griffiths v Kerkemeyer, Sharman v Evans, Kars v Kars, De Sales v Ingrilli.

    This comprehensive book provides invaluable assistance in preparing cases and negotiating settlements out of court. It also includes arithmetical and actuarial tables to assist in the calculation of future economic loss.

  • About the author

    Harold Luntz is an Emeritus Professor in the University of Melbourne Law School. Until his retirement at the end of 2002, he held the George Paton Chair of Law. Thereafter, he continued until 2008 to teach in the postgraduate program. From 1986 to 1988 he was Dean of the Faculty of Law. He was educated in South Africa and at Oxford University, before migrating to Australia in 1965. In 2000 he was the inaugural recipient of the John G Fleming Memorial Award for Torts Scholarship and in 2003 was awarded the AILA Insurance Law Prize. From 1967 to 1984, Harold was the secretary of the Victorian Chief Justice's Law Reform Committee. From time to time, he acted as consultant to other law reform agencies and government bodies. He also served from 1990 to 1992 as a part-time senior member of the Workcare Appeals Board in Victoria and from 1993 to 1998 as Deputy Chair of the Seafarers Rehabilitation and Compensation Authority.

    Sirko Harder is a qualified German lawyer. Prior to joining Monash University in 2009, he worked at the University of Leicester (2006-2009) and the University of Aberdeen (2005-2006). Sirko’s research focusses on two areas of law. One is the law of obligations, in particular remedies. Sirko has published the book Measuring Damages in the Law of Obligations: The Search for Harmonised Principles (Hart, 2010), which investigates certain aspects of the measure of compensation in contract, tort and equity. Together with Dr Katy Barnett from the University of Melbourne, he is working on the forthcoming book Remedies in Australian Private Law (Cambridge University Press, 2014), which will give a scholarly account of the Australian law of remedies. Sirko is at present a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Law at Monash University, but on 1 September will take up a position as Reader at the University of Sussex.
