Negligence - Personal injury - Expert evidence - Conflicting medical evidence on causation - Whether defendant responsible on balance of probabilities for all of claimant's injuries.
Where a defendant admitted liability for the post-birth brain damage suffered by a child, but disputed that all of the brain damage in fact suffered by the child occurred post-birth, a court ruled that the claimant's experts' evidence as to causation of the brain damage was to be preferred and thus that the defendant was responsible, on the balance of probabilities, for all of the brain damage suffered by the child.
