Webinar Recording – Back to Basics: Causation

News

10/08/2020

On Thursday, Ben Hicks and Conor Kennedy delivered the first in our summer Back to Basics webinar series, looking at the topic of Causation.

They considered the first principles of causation and addressed some of the practical problems frequently encountered in relation to it when litigating personal injury and clinical negligence claims.

Topics for discussion included:

  • Factual causation – the applicability and limitations of the “but for” test
  • Legal analyses of causation
  • Remoteness of damage
  • Loss of a chance and the issues arising in valuing such claims
