Description

Personal Injury in New Zealand is an essential resource for anyone who is required to research or provide advice on personal injury compensation.

New Zealand is a world leader in intervening legislatively to recognise and mitigate the impact on society and individuals of the social and financial consequences of accidents causing personal injury.

The introduction of the Accident Compensation Act in 1972 and its subsequent amendments and changes means that anyone providing legal advice on personal injury must understand and navigate through a complex set of processes and rules.

Personal Injury in New Zealand provides detailed guidance to lawyers and other professional advisers. Originally published in 1992, it has become an authoritative guide to all New Zealand law relating to personal injury compensation and prevention measures.

This service contains detailed discussion of the effect of legislation and case law, brought together with the practical experience from leading New Zealand personal injury advisers and lawyers.
