Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Over the years, medical practitioners have expressed concern about the possibility of being sued as a result of Good Samaritan acts. This is despite the fact that there is no Australian case in which a Good Samaritan has been sued by a person claiming that the actions of the Good Samaritan were negligent. This article discusses the nature of Good Samaritan acts and examines the Good Samaritan legislation that has been enacted in Australia.
