Example text

74 Rees v Darlington Memorial Hospital [2003] UKHL 52, paras 130 ff. See also Grubb, ‘Infertility Treatment’ (n 74 above) 172. 75 Under § 280 I BGB. This provision was passed in 2002 and codified principles that had previously been developed by the courts. 76 As noted earlier, until 2002 the reparation granted in German law for the infringement of a person’s contractual interests was limited in a key respect, in that damages were not awarded for pain and suffering. Instead, to recover for these, the patient was required to maintain a concurrent claim in tort law.

In that regard it is apparent that such claims have both a contractual and a tortious dimension. The first stems from the classical, twoparty quality of the doctor-patient relationship, in which the patient sought the doctor out in the hope that the latter might do something positive for him, ie cure or palliate his illness. For its part, tort is in point, given that the doctor, to secure this objective, must interfere directly with the patient’s body and in the process may harm the latter’s negative interests (by causing iatrogenic injury).
