The book makes evaluations of negligence in the field of medicine based what is known as ‘case law’ in the British Law. Case law is a part of common law and it consists of judgements given by higher (appellate) courts in interpreting the statutes (or the provisions of a constitution) applicable in cases brought before them. The precedents, which are legal decisions or form of proceeding serving as an authoritative rule or pattern in the future similar or analogous cases, are recognized, affirmed, and enforced by the court decisions, thus, continually expanding the common law.
