Medical Negligence Claims

Medical negligence, often referred to as medical malpractice, occurs when the duty of care owed to a patient by a healthcare professional or institution is breached, leading to the patient suffering injury, loss, or damage as a result

Medical negligence can manifest in various forms, including:

  • Indicated Treatment: Whether the treatment administered was appropriate for the patient’s condition.
  • Advice Provision: The quality of advice given regarding medical treatment and associated risks.
  • Treatment Administration: The actual provision of medical treatment.
  • Post-Treatment Care: The care provided after the medical treatment.

Potential defendants in a medical negligence claim encompass general practitioners, surgeons, specialists, public and private hospitals, dentists, as well as allied health professionals like physiotherapists and chiropractors.

Given the intricate nature of medical procedures, not all cases of unexpected outcomes signify negligence. It is crucial to gather evidence establishing that the treatment lacked due skill, care, and attention, deviating from competent professional practice at the time.

Who are Eligible for Medical Negligence Claims

If you or a dependent has suffered injury, illness, or loss due to the negligence of a medical practitioner, hospital, or healthcare provider, you may be eligible for compensation through a medical negligence claim.
