Adam Coote has written a new paper titled Use of clinical records as evidence in serious injury applications – Court of Appeal update
The Court of Appeal recently handed down its decision in the matter of Philippiadis v Transport Accident Commission. In its reasons, the Court of Appeal made a number of findings regarding the use of clinical notes and aide memoires in serious injury applications. In particular, the Court of Appeal discussed the application of the rule in Browne v Dunn to clinical notes and the use which can be made of clinical notes as evidence. The focus of this case summary is on that discussion.
