PEOPIL Tourism and RTA Conferences – medical negligence in Poland

This years’ PEOPIL (The Pan European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers) annual conference dedicated to compensation for personal injury related to tourism and road traffic accidents took place just across the border, in Frankfurt, on 9-10 May 2019.
Atty. Jolanta Budzowska has been invited by the conference organisers to give a lecture on the topic of “Medical Tourism and Malpractice in Poland”. The number of foreign patients who receive treatment in Poland, either by choice (plastic surgery, orthopaedic, dental or prosthetic treatment) or by necessity (e.g. following a road traffic accident) is steadily growing. No wonder that the consequences of medial negligence also affect foreigners. In her speech directed to lawyers from all over Europe, Atty. Budzowska discussed legal provisions and relevant case law that apply in such cases, even if the injured patient pursues a compensation claim for medical negligence at his country of residence.


The BFP law firm has a wealth of experience in both providing legal aid and representing injured foreigners in pre-litigation proceedings before the insurer as well as in civil litigation. Additionally, Atty. Jolanta Budzowska acts as an expert of Polish law and thus is an author of expert reports on Polish law and the principles of liability in the scope of personal injury.
