Medical Malpractice And Compensation In Poland, Kinga Bączyk-Rozwadowska Jun 2011

Medical Malpractice And Compensation In Poland, Kinga Bączyk-Rozwadowska

Chicago-Kent Law Review

Civil liability for medical malpractice in Poland can be either contractual or tortious. In practice, provisions of ex delicto liability are applied. Since June 2010, liability insurance is obligatory for all health care providers that render medical services in Poland. Tortious liability may be attributed to a doctor or a hospital when either's faulty acts or omissions result in the damage. A hospital may also have vicarious liability for injuries caused by its doctors and other medical staff. Fault usually consists of negligence, which is defined as failure to work with due care and diligence while treating a patient ...


Medical Malpractice And Compensation In France, Part I: The French Rules Of Medical Liability Since The Patients' Rights Law Of March 4, 2002, Florence G'Sell-Macrez Jun 2011

Medical Malpractice And Compensation In France, Part I: The French Rules Of Medical Liability Since The Patients' Rights Law Of March 4, 2002, Florence G'Sell-Macrez

Chicago-Kent Law Review

While the French Law of medical malpractice had been mainly based on the Civil Code provisions related to contract law, the Patients Rights' Law of March 4, 2002 set forth general principles regarding the responsibility of health professionals and health institutions which are now in the Code of Public Health. The relatively new Law has modified the legal basis for medical liability, which is now regarded as a "legal regime" that is neither contractual nor tortious. The Patients' Rights Law of March 4, 2002 not only has reaffirmed the principle of fault-based liability in medical malpractice cases, but also allows ...


Tort Liabilities And Torts Law: The New Frontier Of Chinese Legal Horizon, Mo Zhang Jan 2011

Tort Liabilities And Torts Law: The New Frontier Of Chinese Legal Horizon, Mo Zhang

Richmond Journal of Global Law & Business

China did not have a single body of torts law until 2009. As a new piece of legislation in the country, the Torts Law of China, effective as of July 1, 2010, forms a comprehensive framework that regulates torts and provides a legal mechanism to govern liabilities and remedies. A product of the civil law tradition, common law practice and Chinese reality combined, adoption of the Torts Law is hailed in China as an important move toward a civil society that is ruled by law.

The Torts Law premises torts on the fault liability with a few exceptions where the ...


The Rule Of Law: Its History And Meaning In Common Law, Civil Law, And Latin American Judicial Systems, Nadia E. Nedzel Jan 2010

The Rule Of Law: Its History And Meaning In Common Law, Civil Law, And Latin American Judicial Systems, Nadia E. Nedzel

Richmond Journal of Global Law & Business

“Rule of law” is an expression both praised and ridiculed by adherents of opposite political philosophies, and it is a principle claimed as the lodestar for widely differing legal theories. As much as an ideality as an ideal, the words “rule of law” have served a wide range of purposes, stretching from political sloganeering to the protection of individual rights from the power of government.


Survey Of Czechoslovak Laws Affecting East-West Trade, Stephen J. Vasek Jr. Jan 1972

Survey Of Czechoslovak Laws Affecting East-West Trade, Stephen J. Vasek Jr.

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

Between 1960 and 1967 all of the major codes of Czechoslovak laws were redrafted. The culminating work in the redrafting process was the New Economic Model (NEM) which became effective in January, 1967. Under the NEM, allocation of resources and trade decisions were to be made primarily on the basis of profitability. The key to the implementation of the profit motive was the new market price system, under which prices were eventually to be determined by supply and demand rather than set by administrative fiat. Bonuses were to be paid workers and managers based upon the profitability of their enterprise ...
