Case Comment: A case comment on Stirrett v Cheema – when does a fiduciary duty exists in the physician-patient relationship.

Doug Wallace provides a case comment on Sacks v. Ross, 2017 ONCA 773 and Surujdeo v. Melady, 2017 ONCA 41, two medical negligence cases where the Court of Appeal offered contradictory guidance on the proper form of jury questions as they relate to the law of causation.  He also reviews the more recent Cheung v. Samra, 2018 ONSC 3480 decision and discussed how the trial judges and counsel are continuing to struggle with how to explain causation to juries in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s decision in Clements.
