Legal issues in medical practice have been gripping medical doctors by surprise in recent years. Some decades ago legal issues in medical practice never created any problem. A greater awareness is being created by adding doctor’s services within the ambit of Consumer Protection Act, 1986. Neither during the undergraduate training nor the postgraduate courses doctors have ever prepared themselves to deal with real-world situations of litigation related to allegations of negligence. While facing litigation related to allegation of negligence in law courts for the first time, a doctor realizes the importance of medical records, consent and expert witness and searches for help books. There are many books available for reference but this one is a handbook for practising doctors and their lawyers grappled with legal issues culminating in litigations covering a vast number of medical specialties and systems.This book proposes to fill the existing vacuum by creating authentic base required to understand the legal issues in medical practice in India. The esteemed contributors have put in their best efforts to share their knowledge, experience and wisdom with the readers by discussing various landmark legal decisions in the field of (alleged) medical negligence. It aims to make the medical practice safe, ethical, reassuring and hassle-free by discussing various legal issues related to medical practice.

The book is written in usual lucid style covering each topic and made reader friendly by adding “summary” “do’s and don’ts”. MCQs are value addition which will improve recall of important legal issues related to medical practice. It is targeted at doctors of all the systems of medicine—be it allopathic, ayurvedic or homeopathic. It covers all the legal issues not covered by teaching of forensic medicine during the undergraduate or postgraduate courses and yet are required in the day-to-day medical practice. The book will help all the doctors in preventive aspects of medical practice, as well as those facing litigation. It will also be an asset for practising lawyers dealing with cases of medical negligence litigation.

This book is targeted at practising doctors for tension-free and litigation-free medical practice. It also provides much-needed relevant medical knowledge to lawyers and those involved in administration of justice.
