Dear Dr.Kulkarni,

As the name itself suggests medico legal cases are those cases which needs both medical as well as legal attention.Suppose that a person met an accident on the road and have been brought to the hospital, as he needs immediate medical treatment for being alive or overcome his injuries. In the same way he needs legal care also to find and punish the culprit who caused the accident.In simple language it is a medical case with legal implications for the attending doctor where the attending doctor, after examining the patient, thinks that some investigation by law enforcement agencies is essential . Or a legal case requiring medical expertise when brought by the police for examination.

It is duty of every citizen to inform the police about commission of any offence as described under section 39 of Cr.Pc. Hence when any doctor come across with such cases then the aforesaid section imposed responsibility on doctor to report it to police immediately.

With Regards
