No fault compensation

12 May 2005
Description

Talina Drabsch explores the possibilities of no fault compensation, where the entitlement to compensation is not linked to the ability to prove that a person's injuries were due to the fault of another. This report is partly a response to the discussion that followed the recent decision of the High Court to reinstate the award of $3.75 million in damages to Guy Swain, a man rendered quadriplegic after diving through a wave and hitting a sandbank at Bondi Beach in 1997.
