Torts and Rights

Robert Stevens

Oxford University Press

One action by the defendant may infringe more than one right of the claimant. Concurrent liability raises issues in relation to a number of rules, in particular limitation, interest, jurisdiction, applicable law, remoteness, contributory fault and defences. Perhaps the greatest confusion has arisen in relation to occupiers liability, where the failure to differentiate the potential rights in play has led to confusion and muddle.

Keywords:   concurrent liability, occupiers, limitation, interest, jurisdiction, applicable law, remoteness, contributory fault, defences
