Medical-negligence litigation is a complex and potentially confusing area, fraught with difficulty for the inexperienced practitioner. This practice guide concisely sets out the substantive law before leading the reader through all the stages of running a medical-negligence action on behalf of plaintiffs.
Practical in approach, the book covers negotiation, tactics and relations with the client and witnesses, as well as law and procedure. Risks and costs are emphasized throughout, and means to reduce them suggested.
The book's step-by-step approach is designed to make it easy to find information, and the appendices contain an extended case-study as well as valuable precedents and other useful information, such as a glossary of medical terms, health circulars, and relevant addresses and telephone numbers.
