"The People's Republic of China Tort Liability Act" includes the medical liability for damages, we can see legislators pay more attention to it , because of the increasingly tense of physician-patient relationship in recent years, "medical dispute "incident occurred frequently in China's various regions. Tort Liability Act provides special chapter of medical damages for defining the body of medical liability and the principle of identification. At the same time it made clear the fault liability for medical damages in the chapter, which is significant for the identification of medical liability for damage and conducive to balance the relationship between patients and medical institutions, so as to promote harmonious development of physician-patient relationship , but the chapter is still flawed in many aspects, such as medical criteria for determining the fault was not sufficiently clear, the burden of proof on the fault does not make the necessary provisions. Many scholars have theories of damages for medical research, but the lack of a systematic study of medical mistakes and not fully aware of medical mistakes in the medical damages in cases of importance. Such as some scholars focus on medical accident research, but the essentially the nature of medical accident and medical mistakes have a distinction, there is injustice in our long-established pattern of binary system, and deep study of medical mistakes are conducive to resolving this problem, making more equitable treatment of medical liability for damages.Therefore, we need to draw on the research results of medical mistakes of other countries , including civil law and common law ,and we must have study Chinese typical cases in medical liability in-depth .Besides , we should study systematically medical mistakes, including the connotation of medical fault, the legal values of medical mistakes identified, the standards of medical mistakes recognized ,and the procedure of medical mistakes identified and the defense theory of medical fault.
