2008 K. J. Barrett, ISBN: 978-0-632-05929-4 Tort: An Overview 37 turn on the issue of what constitutes reasonable care. But reasonable care is only one ingredient of the tort of negligence. Another (and prior) ingredient is the existence of a duty to avoid causing harm. Whether a failure to exercise reasonable care will give rise to a right to compensation depends on whether a duty to avoid harm is owed to the injured party. In the absence of such a duty there is no right to compensation. There are two distinct duties that arise in the tort of negligence: first, a duty to avoid causing harm to persons and property; and second, a duty to avoid causing harm to economic interests.

Later, in Henderson v. ’ In Henderson those ‘other services’ were insurance brokerage. Henderson also confirmed that the wrongdoer is obliged to compensate the injured party ‘in respect of economic loss which flows from the negligent performance of those services’. This duty to avoid carelessly causing economic harm has been expanded over the years since Hedley Byrne to Tort: An Overview 43 include other services, such as those provided by accountants, bankers, brokers, designers, solicitors, surveyors and valuers.

Blandly equating a restitutionary claim with a contractual claim is neither helpful nor necessarily consistent with principle. It may be that the correct approach – where there is ‘no contract’ – is to apply, as a minimum, the statutory requirements (see Chapter 10) and, where 28 Defective Construction Work appropriate, the duty under the Defective Premises Act 1972. 3 below) a sound basis for applying the ‘usual standards’.
