This article examines the relationship between the compensation for and the prevention of hip fractures among the growing population of seniors in Canada. Sarra postulates that the current system expends funds on liability protection that would be better spent on prevention. Options explored are no-fault compensation, redirecting legal resources, negotiated risk, and adjust[ing] the tax base to ensure that there are sufficient resources to support elderly individuals.
