UK: Doctor knows best – expert evidence in medical cases
“No negligence where the doctors disagree” used to be the approach of the courts to expert evidence in medical cases. That deference has eroded in recent years.
In the latest episode of Law Pod UK, the podcast from 1 Crown Office Row, Rosalind English talks to James Badenoch QC, who acted for the claimant, Montgomery, in the most recent Supreme Court case on informed consent in medical cases.
Law Pod UK will be following up the debate on Bolam expert evidence in future episodes.
Law Pod UK is available for free and without ads on Audioboom, iTunes, PodBean, The Podcast App or wherever you get your podcasts.
