APIL Clinical Negligence

Second Edition

Edited by: Paul Balen

Written by a team of leading clinical negligence lawyers and other professionals, this legal guide focuses on the key and developing areas of clinical negligence in the UK, including medical product claims. The book combines know-how about conducting these claims with the latest thinking on new and developing areas of practice. This second edition has been substantially revised to take account of: the UK's new Coroners Rules 2013 * funding post-Jackson * recent UK case-law, such as AB v MoD (limitation); O'Byrne v Aventis Pasteur MSD (medical products); and Aintree University Hospitals NHS Trust v James (medical treatment) * case management - new standard directions for clinical negligence * changes to CPR affecting chapters on Experts, Part 36 and Damages. The Appendices include a glossary of medical abbreviations, suggested model directions in clinical negligence cases, and a comprehensive list of useful UK contact addresses. The result is a highly practical work, offering detailed guidance and expert legal analysis that will be essential reading for all active and potential clinical negligence lawyers and should be of interest to those medical practitioners interested in the role of the expert witness in these cases.
