Excerpt from Judgments:
14 February 2014 - Paul v Cooke  HCATrans 25 -
Three years after Dr Cooke negligently failed to diagnose Ms Paul's intracranial aneurysm, she underwent a "coiling" operation where, through no fault of the surgeons, the aneurysm ruptured and she suffered injury.

Ms Paul argued she was exposed to risks she would likely not have been otherwise, as she would have undergone a different procedure had the delay not occurred.
