Altruism in Private Law: Liability for Nonfeasance and Negotiorum Gestio

Oxford University Press (2005)
Abstract
This book examines two problems in Private law which are posed by the 'Good Samaritan': First, is an intervener under a legal duty to come to the aid of a fellow human being and does he incur any criminal or tortious liability if he fails to do so? Second, having intervened, is an intervener entitled to reimbursement of expenses, remuneration, reward, or compensation for any loss he might have suffered? Does or should the remedy depend on the success of the intervention? The author examines and compares the varied responses of the Roman, French, German, and English legal systems to these problems
