Volume 12 of Norton Rose Fulbright’s Big Read Book series is now out. It is a comprehensive review of judgments dealing with the quantum for damages in medical malpractice cases and which can be found here.
This volume reviews proof of special damages including contingency deduction, life expectancy and loss of earnings. We look at quantifying general damages, contributory negligence and apportionment of damages as well as legal and expert fees. And discuss the recent developments in the law relating to whether money should always be the measure of harm, whether payment in kind is allowable and whether damages have to be paid in a lump sum.
