Sometimes medical treatment does not proceed as anticipated and, on occasion, this may be due to the negligence of your treatment providers (doctors, nurses, physiotherapists etc). If it can be established that the actions of your treatment provider fell below that expected of a reasonably competent practitioner and resulted in you suffering loss, you will be entitled to compensation.
Such compensation may include damages for:
- Pain and suffering;
- Loss of income (past and future);
- Care and assistance provided to you by family and/or friends; and
- Medical expenses (past and future).
Strict time limits apply to claims for medical negligence so you should obtain advice without delay. Contact us for a no-obligation initial consultation with one of our experienced legal practitioners.
