The NSW Court of Appeal has held that medical experts owe a duty of care to take reasonable steps to avoid causing further injury in the course of examinations carried out at the request of an insurer. In this case, the respondents were held to have breached their duty of care under the Civil Liability Act 2002 (NSW) in circumstances where a reasonable person in the examiner’s position would have taken precautions to avoid a risk of harm: section 5B.
