Strafrechtliche Arzthaftung und "an Sicherheit grenzende by Georg Schilling

By Georg Schilling

Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Jura - Strafrecht, be aware: keine, Universität Wien (Institut für Strafrecht und Kriminologie), Veranstaltung: Wissenschaftliche examine von unhaltbaren Fehlbehauptungen in der Jurisprudenz, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Der Problemkreises der sog Unterlassungshaftung, in welchem die sog Quasi-Kausalität von Bedeutung ist, ist für Mediziner/innen von großer Bedeutung. Dies deshalb, da hier zT eine Wahrscheinlichkeits-Urteil verlangt wird .
Bereits von Anfang an werden Mediziner/innen mit statistischen „basics“ betraut. Das Beweismaß einer so genannten „an Sicherheit grenzenden [sic!] Wahrscheinlichkeit“ regt „zum Lachen (oder Weinen) an“ (so manche Wissenschafter/innen): seriös-wissenschaftlich haltbar ist es – wie so manche Medizinerin/so mancher Mediziner dies durchaus rasch durchschaut (nicht zuletzt ob fundierten statistischen Elementar-„Verständnisses“) allerdings – im juristischen Kreis kaum reflektiert – in keinster Weise.
Wenn ich angeklagt bin (etwa wegen fahrlässiger Tötung oder fahrlässiger Körperverletzung durch ein Unterlassen) als Mediziner (Medizinerin), bedarf es eines „Sachverständigen“ welcher besagte „Quasikausalität“ mit der (berühmt-berüchtigten) „an Sicherheit grenzenden Wahrscheinlichkeit“ festzustellen hat, widrigenfalls ein eingetretener Erfolg nicht zugerechnet werden kann.

a)Was nun kann im Prozessverlauf ein angeklagter Mediziner etwa tun? Wie kann/sollte er eventuell argumentieren?
b)Welche Aufgabe hat im Falle von Erfolgs-Unterlassungdelikten sein Verteidiger?
c)Wie kann guy den Sachverständigen (intelligent, sachlich) „aufmachen“?
d)Wie überzeugt guy (möglichst) den Herrn Rat / die Frau Rat von der Haltlosigkeit besagter (gut-klingender, rhetorischer) Wortfloskel?
e)Wie sieht es beim grob pflichtwidrigen Unterlassen einer Ärztin (eines Arztes; als Drittem) betreffend den Risikozusammenhang aus? Ist auch hier die – so genannte – „an Sicherheit grenzende Wahrscheinlichkeit“ korrekt?
f)Wie kann guy Sachverständige zum Umdenken bewegen?
g)Was bedeutet das – aus Sicht der StA – für die Anklage(schrift)?
h)Was kann ein Verteidiger für seinen (Chef-)Arzt „herausholen“ (igZ)?
i)Stichwort „Schriftgutachten“ (etwa von s.g. Kriminologen Prof Dr GRAFL): used to be bedeutet hier (bzw hat hier – etwa heute, anno 2009 - „verloren“) die so genannte „an Sicherheit grenzende Wahrscheinlichkeit“ (in „Ausnahmefällen“ etwa von s.g. Kriminologen Prof Dr GRAFL etwa gebraucht)?
j)Stichwort „DNA-Untersuchungen“: used to be hat hier – de facto – aus seriös-wissenschaftlicher Sicht – etwa eine – so genannte „an Sicherheit grenzende Wahrscheinlichkeit“ – allen Ernstes zu suchen?
