Medical Negligence

Do you think you might have suffered injury or harm as a result of medical malpractice or medical negligence?

If you have suffered pain, injury or lasting damage as a result of poor medical treatment, you may have a legal claim against the medical person treating you or the organisation that employs the doctor, surgeon or other healthcare professional. There are legal, professional and ethical issues that always need to be considered. It must be proved that there were serious errors in the treatment that a competent doctor would not have made, and that these errors played a part in the injury for which you are claiming.  If medical negligence is shown to be the case, you may be able to apply for compensation.

The issues which are involved in medical malpractice or medical negligence could include any or all of the following:

  • Misdiagnosis 
  • Misrepresentation 
  • Misrepresentation of credentials and expertise
  • Negligent advice on treatment options
  • Negligent surgery and treatment
  • Sub-standard post-operative care
