What, if any, damage has been caused by the doctor's negligence?

In a recent article, I deliberately focused on the cause rather than the blame as it is the former that causes the most confusion for clients. Just to recap I stated that, whatever the doctor may have done wrong, there will be no claim unless it can be proved that some injury or damage has been caused. For this article, I have looked at a few cases that have recently been before the court that demonstrate some of the different approaches the court will take in deciding what, if any, injury or damage has been caused.

Compensation for Medical Negligence

Most people who require medical treatment do receive a high standard of care from our National Health Service. However, even in the best run institutions things can and do go wrong from time to time. When they do there is the possibility of obtaining compensation.
