Abstract:     
Shortly after Fairchild v. Glenhaven Funeral Services Ltd., the House of Lords once again departed from orthodox causation rules in order to assist what it thought was a deserving plaintiff. In Chester v. Afshar, the highest English court went further than it had previously dared to by accepting such a departure in a medical liability case.
