Rights and Permissions

In China, two administrative regulations and judicial interpretations related to forensic examinations of medical damage were issued from March 2017 to June 2018. In chronological order, they were interpretation of the supreme people's court on several questions concerning the application of law in the trial of disputes over liability for medical damage and regulations on the prevention and handling of medical disputes. Those two laws, especially the regulation, have had a fundamental impact on the pattern of forensic examinations on medical damage. This paper systematically reviews the current status and existing problems with forensic examinations on medical damage following implementation of the law of tort liability; it discusses new concepts of procedures, institutional arrangements, and the selection of examiners for forensic examinations on medical damage. We believe that through the regulation, the dualistic confrontation status of forensic examinations on medical damage will gradually change toward integration. We consider that forensic examinations of medical damage will face three challenges in the future: (1) enhancing the establishment of standards; (2) undertaking theoretical research into forensic examinations on medical damage; and (3) promoting the development of interdisciplinary identification specialists majoring in both medicine and law. Only in this way will it be possible to rectify the current dilemma with forensic examinations on medical damage in China.
