Abstract

[Abstract]: The High Court has in recent years settled on the law of the place of the wrong as the choice of law rule in tort. This means that arguments will turn to the identification of that place, as a recent case shows, particularly where a situation has links with more than one jurisdiction. This is an issue about which reasonable minds will differ, but in the context of a claim in negligence for work-related injuries, the place of the wrong should be where the employee was exposed to the dangerous working environment.
