Product Description


Anyone involved in a clinical negligence case, whether as claimant, solicitor or barrister, will find themselves confronted with a mass of technical medical language and concepts. It is vital to understand them, and understand them well enough to test your own experts and the experts on the other side. Many a case has failed simply because the parties involved have failed to grapple with the medical technicalities. Finding the necessary technical information has until now involved going to the specialist medical and surgical textbooks. Those textbooks are enormously complex, expensive and inaccessible, and of course are not focussed primarily on medico-legal practice. In "Medical Mistakes" eminent experts from the most sued specialities, each of whom has vast experience in the courts, focus on the problems from their specialties which most commonly form the subject of clinical negligence litigation. The obstetric chapter, for example, deals in detail with shoulder dystocia, perineal tears and the other problems which keep obstetricians and their insurers awake at night. Cerebral Palsy has a chapter all of its own.

The book further includes an exhaustive glossary of medical and medico-legal terms. The contributors equip non-medically qualified readers with everything needed to deal authoritatively and sensibly with the medical and surgical elements of clinical negligence litigation. It is the only one-volume book to do so. There are many books which deal well with the procedure and tactics of clinical negligence litigation. But there is no point in being procedurally and tactically impeccable if you are barking scientifically up the wrong tree. This book will make sure that you are not.
