On Applications of Theory of Chance Forfeit
There might not be any adequacy between the treatment of the physician and the death of the patient as the consequence, when the patient had an illness which could lead to death with a superior possibility before seeing a doctor. Therefore, the physician doesn’t have any responsibility for damage compensation. Under this kind of condition could the loss-of-chance doctrine in Anglo-American Law be referred. According to it, the patient could have damage compensations form the hospital due to faults which lead to the declination of chance of living, because the patient observes to have adequate treatments when seeing a doctor. A case as a reference would be introduced in this thesis to discuss an application of the theory.
