APIL’s Clinical Negligence – third edition published

The third edition of APIL’s guide to Clinical Negligence was published today, with Jonathan Hand as contributing author of the chapter on causation together with Christopher Gibson QC and Rob Dickason.

APIL Clinical Negligence focuses on the key and developing areas of clinical negligence including medical product claims. It combines know-how about conducting these claims with the latest thinking on new and developing areas of practice.
Under Paul Balen as General Editor, this new edition has been substantially revised to take account of:
  • Consent – the impact of Montgomery and Webster
  • Damages – the discount rate; Roberts v Johnstone etc
  • Mediation – the new NHS Resolution agreement
  • Case management and costs budgeting
  • Product liability – update on the test for defect and causation

Jonathan Hand, Outer Temple Chambers, specialises in Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury work.

He has wide-ranging experience across both these fields, and acts for a mix of Claimant and Defendant clients. Much of his work involves catastrophic brain and spinal injuries as well as fatal accident claims. He has a particular specialism in equine and other animal related litigation, and is well-known for his expertise in this area. Other aspects of his practice include representation at Inquests and Professional Negligence claims arising out of the conduct of personal injury and clinical negligence litigation.

Jonathan is ranked by Chambers & Partners and by The Legal 500 as a leading junior in both Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury.
