Legal advice on proposed clinical negligence claim: Antenatal testing

Chinnock v Wasbrough & Rea [2015] EWCA Civ 441 provides an example of an appellate consideration of a legal professional negligence claim, alleging that the lawyers failed to correctly advise on the prospects of success of a proposed medical negligence claim.

The underlying medical claim would have arisen from advice on antenatal screening (nuchal fold measurement and CVS testing), where the child was later born suffering from Down syndrome.

The professional negligence claim failed.

With thanks to Mr Con Ktenas for drawing this matter to my attention.
