Medical Negligence Law in Cyprus
Patient rights are protected in Cyprus. Protection of Patients law of 2005, as amended, provides for the protection of an extensive list of patient rights and also imposes several duties on doctors and hospitals alike. Moreover, there are particular articles in the Cypriot Criminal Code providing for specific offences by doctors in the case of gross medical negligence, and our Civil Liability Statute, Cap 148 provides for particular civil offences that attract liability in the case of doctors and other medical professionals.
Similarly, Cyprus case law in medical negligence is clear and straightforward in providing that doctors have a legal obligation to patients to adhere to a standard of reasonable care. Breach of the above duties is, in a legal sense, medical negligence and this enables a patient to seek compensation for damages.
If you believe that you or a person you love has suffered injury or has passed away due to a doctor's negligence, we have listed below four important steps you should immediately take in order to safeguard your rights as a patient in Cyprus.
