Wildy's Book of the Month: November 2019

Clinical negligence litigation poses unique challenges for all those involved in this field of law. The process which governs judicial determination of allegations of negligent medical practice and treatment is a minefield of complex rules and regulations.

Lewis & Buchan: Clinical Negligence – A Practical Guide provides comprehensive guidance with full analysis of the relevant governing principles plus issues of funding and costs, complaints procedures and procedures in the Court of Protection, as well as the interplay with human rights and the role of expert witnesses.

Since the seventh edition there have been well over 250 reported cases concerning clinical negligence. There have been 2 cases in the Supreme Court, 36 in the Court of Appeal - Civil Division, 226 in the Queen's Bench Division and at least 20 in the County Courts. These cases cover a wide range of subject matters from causation, breach of duty through to specifics relating to life expectancy and wrongful birth.

The new eighth edition considers the impact these cases have on practice and procedure. In addition there is a new chapter on product liability.
