Irish law. Personal injury litigation has been transformed radically by recent legislation. This new Act represents an important element of the rapidly changing culture of personal injury litigation in Ireland. The book consists of 8 chapters and 4 appendices written by the diverse interested parties involved in the area. The concern has been driving legislation is the desire to reduce insurance costs, to remove unnecessary legal expenses, to thwart fraud and punish exaggeration among plaintiffs and to simplify and speed litigation. Please note Bloomsbury Professional acquired this title from First Law in July 2010.
