It has been reported in the Legal Gazette that Sir Peter Jackson, Former Court of Appeal Judge has suggested a change in the legal test for Clinical Negligence cases.
It was acknowledged that such a move would be likely to increase the number of claims for compensation brought as a consequence of Clinical Negligence. Therefore, the new test would consider whether the injury was reasonably avoidable.
Furthermore, he suggested that Clinical Negligence claims could be streamlined via the use of tribunals rather than Courts, with Judges sitting alongside colleagues with medical experience.
