Clements (by her mother and litigation friend Geis-Clements) v Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust

Negligence – Causation. The defendant NHS Trust's advice to the claimant's mother on breastfeeding had not caused the claimant's injuries, on the basis that the evidence had not demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that the claimant's sudden untoward postnatal collapse had been caused by suffocation by her mother's ***. Accordingly, the Queen's Bench Division, dismissed the claimant's claim.
