    Australian Medical Liability is a comprehensive handbook focusing on medical liability in the context of the civil liability legislation across Australia. This thoroughly revised second edition by Bill Madden and Janine McIlwraith, provides a detailed and in depth commentary on the elements of medical liability legislation. Australian Medical Liability follows the structure of a medical negligence claim through duty, breach and causation, ensuring its practicality as a resource for the busy practitioner and the interested student.

    In addition to incorporating those key case decisions that have been handed down since the first edition, this second edition of Australian Medical Liability includes new chapters on apologies, good samaritans, intoxication, and contributory negligence. The loss of chance chapter has been rewritten to reflect changes to the law following recent High Court authority.
