APIL Clinical Negligence


2nd Edition
APIL Clinical Negligence focuses on the key and developing areas of clinical negligence including medical product claims. It combines know-how about conducting these claims with the latest thinking on new and developing areas of practice.

This new edition has been substantially revised to take account of:

  • New Coroners Rules 2013

  • Funding post-Jackson

  • Causation – recent case-law such as AB & Others v MoD

  • Medical Products - O'Byrne v Aventis Pasteur MSD

  • 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 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.
