Proving Causation and Damages in late Cancer Diagnosis Cases

Published by Ontario Trial Lawyers Association
and Saskatchewan Trial Lawyers Association




Summary
Establishing causation in cases of late cancer diagnosis has always been a challenging task. Plaintiffs face difficulty proving the stage at which their disease would have been caught absent the negligence, precisely because the imaging and biopsies that would have assisted with that exercise were never done.

Jurisprudence has developed in recent years to assist plaintiffs in building their case at trial, and this webinar proposes to review both the law and medicine pertinent to cancer staging, and the damages arising from delays in diagnosis and treatment.
