Problem of medical malpractice is now one of the most popular problems in Polish society and in the polish media. The legal definition of medical malpracitice was made in Poland in 1952 by Highest Law Court. In that definition Highest Law Court decided that about medical ault we can say, when doctor’s diagnosis or therapy is made against the code of practice in contemporary medicine but only in approachable to him conditions. In our work we want to present contemporary classification of medical malpracitice especially in family medicine practice. We want to describe typical groups of their mistakes and their penal, civil and professional responsibility. Especially their civil and assurance responsibility is different in public and private health service. In the group of professional liability we must remember about unlegal problem of ethical responsibility due to Medicine Ethical Code. In our paper we also present data about medical malpractice from the Main Doctors Court.
