Causation is an issue that is fundamental in both law and medicine, as well as the interface between the two disciplines. It is vital for the resolution of a great many disputes in court concerning personal injuries, medical negligence, criminal law and coronial issues, as well as in the provision of both diagnoses and treatment in medicine. This book offers a vital analysis of issues such as causation in law and medicine, issues of causal responsibility, agency and harm in criminal law, causation in forensic medicine, scientific and statistical approaches to causation, proof of cause, influence and effect, and causal responsibility in tort law. Including contributions from a number of distinguished doctors, lawyers and scientists, it will be of great interest and value to academics and practitioners alike.

Review:

'...it is impressive even to attempt to grapple with this daunting subject and for that academics, and interested practitioners, will give thanks.'New Law Journal 'Causation in Law and Medicine is an interesting, provocative work and a welcome addition to the literature of legal medicine...this book offers a very useful summary of the problem of causation in law and medicine in a wide variety of contexts and from a wide variety of perspectives and is well worth reading. The questions it raises and the thoughts it provokes are central to the quest for justice wherever, and under whatever legal system, it is carried out.' Journal of Legal Medicine '...pays more than the usual lip-service to the need for an approach which transcends the boundaries of law and science...reveals how much more coherent the law in various jurisdictions would become were such a reform to be adopted.' Modern Law Review
