In the fifth episode of our six-part series, David Hossack discusses recent case law with experts Nicola Edgar and Derek Couper. These cases cover issues such as when the burden of proof will shift to a Defender and the importance of choosing the right expert witness. Derek discusses some recent medical negligence litigation which highlights the difficulties in proving causation, and what happens when witness evidence contradicts the medical evidence available. Nicola also discusses certain cases which highlight the importance of complying with the Court rules.
