Legal aspects of surgical practice

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    In relation to personal injuries litigation, the practice of surgery is governed by the law of torts (civil wrongs) and contract law. This section will consider the law from a UK perspective, but reference will also be made to case law from other Anglo-American legal systems, such as the USA, Canada and Australia, since the law in these countries is similar to that of the UK.
