But in this case, the claimant is not aware that Dr. Petra is not experienced in the new procedure, furthermore, the claimant attended PhysioBest with the hope to get specialist treatment. Hence, the doctor and the hospital have no otherwise but to take full charge of their negligence. Dr. Petra is further held for the negligence because of his lack of seriousness in his duty. As a doctor who is expected to provide his clients with the duty of care, he has to make a follow up and be keen to the result of his treatment. He is much aware that he is not specialized in the treatment procedures that he has just undertaken, but still he is busy with the messages in his phone to the extent that he fails to recognize that there is a swelling in Adams’s legs after his session of treatment. This is a further show of negligence.

COURSEWORK 9 The final show of negligence that has to be considered is the causation. The first idea of causation is very direct, that is the damages is ultimately as a result of the action set by the defendant. It has to be settled that there is not any other intervening act that might have caused the damages without the negligence of the defendant. We are much aware that Adam has pain in the tendons of his knees due to the old age, but still he was able to put up with the pain and even walk before the intervention of a doctor at PhysioBest. Undeniably, Adam suffered more pain out of his treatment more than before and he is forced to walk with sticks. Adam would be able to claim general injury here for pain and sufferings he has undergone as well as any pecuniary loss that he might suffer in future due to wrong surgery. In case Adam had died, his estate could pursue the claim under the Law Reform Act 1934. Furthermore, her estates could also make claims on behalf of his relatives, such as wife, sisters, parents, aunts or uncle under Fatal Accident Act 1976, to the level at which such relatives were dependent on him.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
