Compensation and support for illness and injury
Reporting the findings of a large national survey in the United Kingdom, this study examines different systems of compensation and support for the injured, ill, or congenitally handicapped and their families. The authors assess the roles of government agencies, local authorities, employers, and informal organizations in providing such services as social security, criminal injuries compensation, sick pay, and private insurance. The work will be of interest to lawyers, government officials, social security officers, and all others working with people seeking compensation for accident and injury.
