Questions to Ponder About Largey

A. Which  is  better,  the  physician  rule  (a/k/a  the  “‘professional standard’  rule”)  or  the  patient  rule  (a/k/a  the  “‘prudent  patient’ rule”)? Why?

B. Assuming that a jurisdiction opts for the patient rule, do you agree with the Largey court that the causation standard should be objective?

(The objective causation  standard.)  Or  should  it  only  matter  whether  the  particular plaintiff  would  have  made  a  different  decision  had  the  risk  been disclosed? (The subjective causation standard.)
