Medical Negligence and Childbirth

The second edition of this well-received book from 2015, which was named 'Legal Book of the Year' at the Irish Law Awards in 2016, takes account of recent developments in the area of medical negligence and childbirth.

With contributions from world-leading experts in obstetrics, gynaecology, neonatology and other related specialties, this book will equip legal practitioners with the knowledge they need to advise on complex birth-related injuries.

The second edition contains ten brand new chapters covering issues including termination of pregnancy, autism, inquests and fatal injuries actions, as well as actions for wrongful birth. The up-to-date practice and procedure in medical negligence litigation is made clear, and quantum is explained in a readily comprehensible fashion.

As well as covering the legal implications of the various birth-related injuries, including analysing UK and Irish case law, the book also uniquely explains birth injuries from a medical perspective. This book will prove useful to both lawyers and medical professionals alike.
