We’ve all heard the phrase “information overload.”.   Trying to categorise the case law concerning Injury Awards is a mammoth sized example.

How can you tell whether the large mammal of a court transcript is the one in the room that you need, uselessly white or of the delirium-induced hallucinated pink variety?

What do you do when there are too many elephants on your plate and it’s becoming overwhelming? Packing all elephant related analogies into the trunk (for now, at least), we’ve made the first known attempt to group related injury award High court decisions together.

WiseMapping is a free online mind mapping program that anyone can use for
brainstorming ideas. We’ve used it to try and map together all the decisions so you can focus on the ones that matter.

Use the cross-hair to move the map.  Click the attachment ‘paper clip’.  And then click in the thumbnail box to open the court transcript in another window.


We’ve put the map on the caselaw RSS feed for your convenience.
