Liability Reports

A medico-legal report on Breach of Duty is a comprehensive document prepared by qualified healthcare experts to assess whether a professional has breached their duty of care to a patient. This report is a critical component in cases of clinical negligence providing an impartial evaluation of the standard of care provided by the healthcare practitioner.

Key Components:

  1. Case Background: The report begins by outlining the details of the case, including the patient's medical history, the nature of the treatment or intervention in question, and the circumstances surrounding the alleged breach of duty.

  2. Clinical Assessment: A thorough clinical assessment is conducted to evaluate the standard of care provided by the healthcare professional. This may involve reviewing medical records, diagnostic tests, and other relevant documentation.

  3. Expert Opinion: Based on the clinical assessment, the medical expert provides their expert opinion on whether the healthcare professional adhered to the appropriate standard of care. They assess whether the actions taken were in line with accepted medical practices and guidelines.

  4. Identification of Breach: The report identifies any deviations from the standard of care that may constitute a breach of duty on the part of the healthcare professional. This could include errors in diagnosis, treatment, surgical procedures, medication management, or failure to provide adequate follow-up care.

  5. Causation Analysis: The report also considers the causal relationship between any breaches of duty identified and the patient's subsequent harm or injury. It examines whether the breach directly contributed to the adverse outcome experienced by the patient.

  6. Conclusions and Recommendations: Finally, the report concludes with a summary of findings and recommendations. This may include suggestions for further investigation, expert testimony in legal proceedings, or recommendations for improving patient safety and quality of care.
