Medical Negligence Compensation

By some estimates, as many as 18,000 Australian’s die every year as a result of medical and hospital errors, while 50,000 people suffer a permanent injuries.  The impact of these errors can be devastating to both individuals affected and their families.

Medical negligence or medical malpractice occurs when hospitals, doctors, nurses, chemists or other health providers fail to deliver medical services of the appropriate standard. The types of claims can range from misdiagnosis through to treatment and procedural errors.

Pursuing a successful medical misadventure/medical negligence claim requires a high degree of expertise and experience as doctors make mistakes but not all mistakes fall under the umbrella of medical negligence.

Medical negligence claims by their nature are often complex and defended vigorously by the medical practitioners, their insurers and their solicitors.
