Do you have a medical negligence claim?
Nothing is as important as your health. If you have suffered an injury or otherwise suffered as a result of a misdiagnosis, faulty medical implants or bad medical treatment, you may be entitled to make a medical negligence claim.
Common examples of medical negligence include:
- Failing to diagnose, or misdiagnosing, an illness or injury.
- Delaying a diagnosis, treatment or referral.
- Failing to give you the right medical treatment.
- Failing to refer you to a medical specialist.
- Not performing a surgery, or making errors in surgery.
- Not exercising a reasonable amount of care and skill in their treatment.
- Incorrectly reporting or interpreting test results.
- Prescribing the wrong medication, including medication that causes an adverse reaction.
- Defective medical implants and devices including pacemakers, replacement hips and breast implants.

- Any expenses you have incurred, including time lost from work and medical costs.
- The cost of care and assistance you have required, or will require in the future.
- Future expenses including time lost from work and medical costs.
