| POLITICHE SOCIALI E SERVIZI - 2012 - 1
This study analyses the main legal issues arising in the field of the medical liability litigation.
In particular, the author outlines the problems related to the existence of a large number
of proceedings (even though the damage compensation claims are usually not as relevant)
and the burdens connected to their management in charge of the medical operators and of
the insurance companies, notwithstanding the possible negative outcome of the litigation.
Subsequently the author identifies the possible advantages, as well as the limits connected to
the resort to the devices of alternative dispute resolution, describing the most significant experiences
in the field of the conciliation and the mediation.
