Defamation and Personal Injury laws

Comment 5th July 2010

I hope the Government will act swiftly to amend defamation laws.  

I hope also that the Government will repeal legislation which makes possible claims for personal injury compensation.

Why does this matter?

Defamation and personal injury legislation have brought our legal system in to disrepute.

Libel laws curb investigative journalism, inhibit freedom of speech, and are hugely expensive for plaintiffs and defendants.  Many libel and slander cases bring the law in to disrepute.

Personal injury cases have also become a rich seam for lawyers – and a constant threat to employers and those who have premises open to the general public.
