The gender of damages and compensation

The gender of damages and compensation

Published 9th April 2019

Is the Australian law of tort and compensation gender neutral in the way it allocates damages and compensation for injuries? Do all those who suffer compensable injuries receive appropriate compensation for their injury via common law damages or via statutory compensation (or a combination of the two)? Are the only relevant variables the type of injury; whether the system of compensation is a fault or no-fault system; the location where the injury occurred; and how it occurred?
