ABSTRACT

The “loss of a chance” is an innovative theory accepted in the Brazilian legal system. The adequate supply to the competent authority for clarification on the matter at hand, according to the actual situation of the individual and based on medico-legal knowledge, is responsible for the formation of the magistrate’s conviction, contributing to justice. In this light, it is of great medical-legal interest that every expert knows doctrinal aspects related to the “loss of a chance”. In civil lawsuit, cases that involve claims specially about health care and compensation payments for alleged damages require a complete medical report. Expert evidence must translate the complexity of technical evaluation into a set of reasoned conclusions, according to the real situation of the individual and considering the general principle of full compensation of personal damages.

Key-words: expert testimony; damage assessment methodologies; compensation and redress; moral damage; loss of a chance.
