20.1.4 General examples - Unintended consequence


1.A client suffers anaesthesia complications during an operation for the amputation of her leg, which had earlier been crushed in a non-compensable motor vehicle accident. The anaesthesia complications cause brain damage, leading to significant impairment and total incapacity for work.

2.A client is blinded in one eye following cosmetic eye surgery. Loss of sight is a known, but very rare, risk factor in that surgical procedure.
