Description

Unexpected consequences of compensation law is to be read broadly to look at some of the issues that arise before, after or during the process of compensation for personal injury. Examples include the impact of the compensation process on plaintiffs and defendants including on their mental and physical health, why people sue or do not sue and the role of apologies in that decision; the role of insurance in the process; whether compensation is compensatory or effective and whether apologies can be a remedy; whether the processes are effective and whether the compensation systems actually offer access to justice. This symposium allows for cross-disciplinary accounts of the impact of compensation processes on people and thus medical, psychological, sociological and other forms of analysis will all be pertinent.
