Loss of Chance Claims in Medical Negligence


My current research explores a hotly contested claim in negligence, that is the 'loss of chance of avoiding physical injury', an examination through which will aim to develop a better understanding of the following aspects of tort law at its fringes: the moral properties of harm and responsibility, and the concept of 'actionable damage'.
