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.

What kind of compensation can I claim?

If your medical negligence claim is successful, you will receive a lump sum payment. This is in-tended to compensate you for:

  • 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.
  • Your pain and suffering.
