Introduction to Litigation in Case of Medical Negligence

Session 
2.04
Tutorial
  • Denise Stephens
Summary

This presentation will give a brief introduction to litigation in case of medical negligence. There will be examples of some of the negligence cases which have enabled AAC use for families as well as the services that an award can help a family to access.

I will introduce some thoughts on how important it is that all students have access to good services, whether or not they have achieved awards, and the legal work done in obtaining tribunal rulings to ensure that a bench mark is achieved for good practice. Information about how families can contact appropriate solicitors to find out if they might be eligible to take a case forward will be given.
