Case Study: Barton v. Advanced Radiology P.A.
This case focuses on the Important issue of causation in medical malpractice cases. The court looks at the nuances of the differences between "but-for" causation and "proximate" causation. Does negligence that increases chance of death of a person who later dies constitute causation or does the chance of death have to be brought from under 50% to over 50% due to the malpractice for proximate causation to have been met? This case discusses this and other important considerations in medical malpractice cases.
