Actions concerning medical negligence have increased dramatically over the last decade. Those actions concerning the head, spine and nervous system form a significant part of these cases and damages are usually substantial. Problems generally arise not because of negligence on the part of neurologists or neurosurgeons, but because non-specialist staff fail to identify the correct diagnosis.

This new book concentrates on the areas that tend to lead to litigation, bringing together clinical specialists with experience as expert witnesses. The legal aspect is highlighted by a leading barrister and solicitor in the field of medical negligence.
