Legal Protection Group are delighted to bring you the latest edition of ATE Matters containing the most recent and important updates affecting the world of clinical negligence and litigation as a whole.
We start this month with two cases bringing vicarious liability for the wrongful actions of an employee under the spotlight.
The following updates this month are , I’m sure, going to be of interest to any of your colleagues involved in clinical negligence litigation especially the last. The case of XDE v North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust brings into focus again the tricky subject of switching a case from legal aid to a CFA/ATE arrangement and the possible implications.
As always please do let us know if you have any comments on ATE Matters or would like to discuss any aspect of litigation insurance and funding.
Please take care and stay safe in these uncertain times.
