(p.349) 13 Introduction
European Tort Law

Cees van Dam

Oxford University Press

The final part of this book assumes a comparative and a supranational point of view and deals with a number of categories of liability as they relate to tort law in Europe. Most of these categories are related to someone's quality as a supervisor over movable and immovable objects. This chapter sets out the different ways such a supervisor is indicated, both on the basis of strict and fault liability. Liability for lack of information and for defective information is considered, both as regards situations in which someone is obliged to provide information (for example a doctor or a bank), and in which voluntarily provided information (for example in a book or on a website) has to be correct and reliable.

Keywords:   liability, tort law, Europe, movable objects, defective information, immovable objects
