Medical Negligence


Skrine has experience in providing legal advice to medical practitioners in connection with negligence claims, both threatened and real. Given the highly prejudicial impact that litigation can have on the medical reputation of practitioners, Skrine lawyers apply their skills towards avoiding or minimising adverse publicity. Skrine's team of Medical Negligence litigation lawyers are committed to providing effective defence services to medical practitioners with equal emphasis on alternative dispute resolution.

Skrine also has experience in representing medical practitioners who are charged with misconduct or infamous conduct by the Malaysian Medical Council. Skrine's clients are provided with comprehensive representation at the various stages of Malaysian Medical Council inquiries.

Additionally, our Medical Negligence Practice Group has the privilege of consulting with and obtaining interim advice and expert opinions from a team of varied and highly respected medical professionals who are recognised as experts in their respective fields of medicine. These experts may be called upon to attend the trial either as expert witnesses or to assist as part of the defence team.

In certain instances, when allegations made against a medical practitioner and defamatory in nature, the medical practitioner can expect to receive advice, and if necessary, aggressive litigation service towards prosecuting a defamation action.

Skrine's services are traditionally retained by the insurers or underwriters of medical negligence indemnity scheme but on occasion Skrine has been directly retained by medical practitioners.
