Medical negligence and Court of Protection crossover

15 March 2022

In episode 6 of the Shoosmiths serious injury podcast, Shoosmiths colleagues Lucy Taylor, Rebecca Bristow, Amy Greaves and Sharon Banga discuss circumstances and cases where the practice areas of Medical negligence and the Court of Protection (COP) overlap.

The episode hopes to provide valuable insight into how these two practice areas often collaborate on complex claims to the benefit of our clients.  

This episode covers:

  • Types of cases where clinical negligence and COP typically work together
  • Information about the role of COP and how they operate / can assist medical negligence litigation
  • Insight into the relationship with COP from a claimant solicitor perspective
  • Benefit of a deputyship / trust to the client and family of a minor or protected party in certain medical negligence claims
