In tort law a claim for 'loss of chance' can become very complicated when a claimant is seeking compensation for something that might have happened many years previous. A careful balance has to be struck between running a hypothetical trial and holding older evidence up for scrutiny. In this episode we discuss the burden of proof on a claimant in this context and how such a case should be conducted. Music from bensound.com
