Introduction: In French law, medical error proceeding has undergone many developments, and at present in this country a comprehensive medical compensation system is designed to address both patient rights and physician concerns about the costs of compensation. Contrary to traditional French law and the general classification of medical services in a public or private hospital, a new legal regime has been adopted since 2002 by accepting any fault for medical malpractice, regardless of whether the service provider was public or private, and an evolution in the concept of fault for medical liability was created in this country. In this development, new and varied methods of compensation in the event of a medical malpractice start from the friendly process of reconciliation between the parties through the Conciliation and compensation committees for medical accidents and continue until payment is made by the Guarantee Fund of The National Medical Accident Compensation Office. The legal and criminal responsibility of the physician has also been strengthened in the French legal system, and even the decisions of the last highest medical authority, the National Council of the College of Physicians, have been overseen by the French State Council.
Conclusion: Examination of French law on medical error and its remedies can be useful for the health system of Iran and many countries and can fix many problems.
