Liability of medical practitioners as well as hospitals has become increasingly important throughout the last decades. The number of claims as well as the amounts of damages have risen. Are mere modifications of the classical liability law sufficient to met the needs of the 21st century's society? Is the introduction of a no-fault compensation model on the basis of the existence of insurance or funds the solution to the problem? This study provides an overview of the legal situations in various European cuntries and (because of its dissimilarity) New Zealand. Moreover the case law of these jurisdictions is analyzed by renowned tort law experts. A comparative survey highlights the discernible tendencies. Furthermore, the economic aspects of the liability sstems in the health care area are presented. The reader finds information about the different ways in which contractual liability, liability based on fault, insurance and fund models are combined.
