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.
