In Keown vs Coventry Healthcare NHS Trust, the claimant attempted to sue the NHS Trust for injuries suffered as a result of falling from the hospital fire escape. While many situations can lead to successful claims for medical negligence, it was held by the Court of Appeal that the Trust was not liable as the claimant caused their own injuries. The case attracted a lot of media attention in Coventry.
