The First Edition, which was published in 2009 and included case law from the 1960s to 2009, was the first book in Malaysia to include cases and commentary on medical negligence. This book's Second Edition is still the go-to source for information on medical malpractice case law in Malaysia because it offers a helpful compilation of local medical malpractice cases as well as updates on cases from 2010 to 2020.

Each case is accompanied with the summary case facts and holdings, relevant excerpts of the court’s decision, a concise note on the quantum of damages awarded, and illuminating notes, providing a good understanding of the current developments of medical negligence law in Malaysia. The key subject terms which precede each case will also provide a quick guide to its scope and content.

The introductory chapter has been revamped to give an updated overview of the development of medical negligence law in Malaysia up to the year 2020, discussing key issues in the area, including the Bolam principle, the Bolitho qualifications, and the Rogers v Whitaker test.

Written by a professor of law whose areas of expertise include the subject of negligence and medical law, this book will be useful for medical professionals, lawyers, judges, hospital administrators, insurers as well as law students.
