|Title:||Litigation for failure to warn of natural hazards and community resilience||Contributor(s):||Eburn, Michael Ernest (author)||Publication Date:||2008||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2762||Abstract:||This paper considers, in the Australian context, the potential liability of those involved in communicating hazard warnings to the community. It considers the proposition that suing the authorities for 'failure to warn' will be a reasonably attractive litigation strategy but that, if adopted, may pose a threat to community resilience. It will argue that reliance on tort (or fault based litigation) may pose a threat to community resilience.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Victorian Office of the Emergency Services Commissioner, Melbourne, Australia, 6 August 2008||Conference Details:||Victorian Office of the Emergency Services Commissioner, Melbourne, Australia, 6 August 2008||Source of Publication:||Presentation to the Office of the Victorian Emergency Services Commissioner, Melbourne, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||180126 Tort Law||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||940401 Civil Justice||HERDC Category Description:||E2 Non-Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.ema.gov.au/www/emaweb/rwpattach.nsf/VAP/(084A3429FD57AC0744737F8EA134BACB)~13821+WEMA+Eburn.PDF/$file/13821+WEMA+Eburn.PDF||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 59
