Chen Meng Lam, ‘Revisiting loss of chance in medical negligence: employing public policy positively as justification’

ABSTRACT
Analyses the policy arguments for and against allowing loss of chance claims in medical negligence cases and argues that public policy can be used positively to provide a rationale for recognising loss of chance as an actionable damage. Compares the approach to the loss of chance doctrine in England, Australia, the US and Singapore. Suggests a framework for analysing policy to justify recognition of the doctrine in medical negligence.
