On this episode of Inside Medical Malpractice, Chris Rokosh talks to Paul Cahill about the trial and judgement of a case involving a rare, but serious nerve injury during a relatively minor medical procedure; Tension-Free Vaginal Tape Surgery (TVT). Paul discusses the ‘backwards perspective’ required to prove that in spite of an operative record saying everything went perfectly right, the nature of the injury inferred that something went very wrong. The central issue to prove was what caused the injury? The judge found that Paul’s theory of the case was the only reasonable explanation for the outcome. Don’t miss the valuable insights Paul offers lawyers, healthcare providers and patients.
