Law of tort and damages, including personal injury

The law of tort and damages enables people to assert their rights and receive compensation for damage, loss or injury suffered as a result of another's negligence and ensures that remedies are available where a civil wrong is committed, either under statute or the common law.

We are responsible for developing the law on tort and damages in England and Wales through legislative and procedural change, working with stakeholders and the judiciary. We represent the UK in European and international negotiations relating to these issues.
