About Lewis and Buchan: Clinical Negligence – A Practical Guide

Professional negligence cases are a minefield and clinical negligence cases are no exception.

Providing invaluable advice from the leading experts in the field for each stage in a claim for clinical negligence.
Full analysis of the relevant governing procedures and principles is provided, plus issues of funding and costs, including complaints procedures and procedures in the Court of Protection, as well as the interplay with human rights and the role of expert witnesses.

The Eighth Edition ensures that practitioners maintain a progressive edge by providing useful precedents such as the latest model directions, instructions for experts and draft agendas for experts. It contains a new chapter on product liability and a separate Welsh chapter. It also includes coverage of the more than 250 reported cases concerning clinical negligence since the last edition. This includes:

2 in the Supreme Court
36 in the Court of Appeal – Civil Division
226 in the Queen’s Bench Division
20+ in the county courts

These cases cover a wide range of subjects from causation and breach of duty through to specifics relating to life expectancy and wrongful birth.

An invaluable resource for all those involved in clinical negligence cases including personal injury and medical law solicitors, barristers and the judiciary. Medical doctors and legal advisors in NHS trusts will also find this a helpful guide.

“This is a first class book, which provides a scholarly account of clinical negligence law”.
