This book compares the liability rules on injury caused through services provided in the private sector. Although services are generally rendered on a contractual basis, the book nonetheless includes both contractual and tortious liability. However, it focuses on specific kinds of injury, on specific services, and on specific countries. The book also focuses on injury to the person and not with damage to property nor with pure economic loss due to the life, bodily integrity, and health of a person being of primary importance in each society. Liability for the Safety of Services examines the insights of comparative law, looking at eight different legal systems - English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Swedish and US law, and, as far as it currently exists, EU law. These legal systems comprise the major legal families which have influenced the law of many other countries and which are generally identified in comparative law. This comparison reveals the similarities and divergences of the legal systems under review in order to lay foundations for a common European law.
