CARE/CONTACT: A County Council v K, D and L [2005] EWHC 144 (Fam)

08 MAR 2005

(8 March 2005; Charles J; Family Division) [2005] 1 FLR 851

The court was entitled to reach a conclusion as to the cause of death or injury that was different to or did not accord with the conclusion reached by the medical experts as to what they considered was more likely than not to be the cause having regard to the existence of reasonable alternative possibilities. In doing so it was not necessary for the court to reject the reasoning of the medical experts; the court could accept the evidence, but on the basis of the totality of the evidence, reach a different overall conclusion.
