Introduction: Doctor-Patient's inextricable bond, as well as all rights and obligations deriving from it, make it urgent to form a thorough legal framework, so as to ensure medical practice, according to medical standards and rules of law. Aim: This study is aiming at analyzing all sorts of doctor's liability issues occurring at medical practice while delineating the fundamentals of Medical law in Greek legal system. Method: The implementation of this study was based on book review and rich case law of Greek courts (civil, penal and administrative) regarding medical malpractice. Conclusion: The big increase of cases concerning doctor's civil, penal and disciplinary liability in our country, as well as in Europe and globally, that end either in court or in out-of court settlement with severe physical, emotional, economic and social consequences in both patient's and doctor's lives, demands the co-ordination of legal, medical and other human-centered sciences so as to best deal with it, in terms of protecting both sides' (patient's and doctor's) rights, according to the Constitution, National and European legislation.
