Accident law is currently under review throughout the United States, and indeed the world, as present systems prove increasingly inadequate to handle the mounting costs of automobile accidents. In this pioneering work, Guido Calabresi develops a framework for evaluating different systems of accident law. Defining the goal of accident law as the maximum reduction of accident and accident avoidance costs that can be achieved fairly, he examines ten political and economic choices implied in various approaches to reducing these costs. Calabresi then considers two fundamental problems all systems of accident law must face: who should be held responsible for accident costs, and how should they be valued? He analyzes the fault-insurance system now widely used and finds it wanting on grounds both of cost reduction objectives and fairness. In conclusion, he discusses recent proposals for reform of the law, points out questions they raise, and ends by indicating the two he thinks most likely to prevail and the fundamental conflict between them. "Calabresi's book is most significant for its first-rate combination of modern economic analysis and legal policy. The methodology and underlying principles extend far beyond the particular subject matter of accident law to many other legal areas that could benefit from economic analysis. In turn, some economic analyses may become the richer for the discussion in this book. It is truly one of those rare important volumes."--Gerald M Meier

In this book Steven Shavell provides an in-depth analysis and synthesis of the economic approach to the building blocks of our legal system, namely, property law, tort law, contract law, and criminal law. He also examines the litigation process as well as welfare economics and morality. Aimed at a broad audience, this book requires neither a legal background nor technical economics or mathematics to understand it. Because of its breadth, analytical clarity, and general accessibility, it is likely to serve as a definitive work in the economic analysis of law.

In this book, after an analysis of the liability system, we analyzed the effects of law enforcement by the courts and by insurers with respect to claims for damages arising from road accidents, in particular, the effects due to the variability of tort awards granted by courts for similar cases, as well as the effects due to judicial delay, which combined with the variability of tort awards granted by courts for similar cases, wich tend to decrease efficiencyleading to a lower level of care, especially for drivers, with consequences on a larger number of accidents and therefor in more deaths and injuries. This study seeks to highlight the importance of law enforcement, to the functioning of society in general and for the reduction of road accidents in particular. The tort system is an important instrument that can affect the number of accidents. A viable tort system should be able to contribute towards general deterrence while providing equitable compensation to accident victims.
