This book focuses primarily upon claims brought against public authorities for the tort of negligence. Where a public authority causes harm to an individual, either deliberately or carelessly, there may also be other remedies available to the injured party. The present chapter considers some of the more important alternative remedies, though perhaps the most significant alternative now available are claims brought under the Human Rights Act 1998, which are considered separately in Chapter 7. In this chapter we examine the torts of misfeasance in public office and breach of statutory duty as well as judicial review proceedings and complaints to the Ombudsmen.

Keywords:   Companies House, Crown Prosecution Service, Human Rights Act 1998, Law Commission, Local Government Ombudsman (LGO), Mental Health patients, National Health Service (NHS), National Health Service, Prison Rules, after-care, alternative remedies, carelessness, economic loss
