Publisher Description:

Inspired by developments mirroring shifts in the legal basis for compensating damage from civil law to public funding and VIce versa, this book examines the developments in compensation systems for damage arising from work-related injuries and diseases. The shifts which have occurred in this area in Germany, England, Belgium and the Netherlands are the subject of this volume. The shifts in the legal doctrine, legislation and the case law of these countries will first be mapped from a historical and comparative perspective, with the aim of discovering the precise nature of the given shifts. Subsequently the shifts will be analysed and explained on the basis of the legal history so as to comprehend the reasons behind the shifts. Finally, the effects of the shifts will be examined. Did the shifts have the desired effects or did other, perhaps unexpected, effects arise and if so why and in what form? An economic analysis of law will be included to provide an answer to these questions.
