Medical negligence occurs when a medical practitioner such as a doctor, surgeon, nurse or other healthcare professional fails in their duty of care to their patients and that failure results in serious injury. In essence, medical negligence is when treatment falls below the acceptable standard and results in injury.
Medical Negligence claims are complex by nature and can be extremely stressful for all involved. If you believe you have a claim for compensation resulting from negligence by a doctor, hospital or any other healthcare professional/facility, then engaging the right lawyer for your claim can make all the difference.

What compensation am I likely to receive?
It is impossible for any lawyer to provide a precise estimate of what a medical negligence claim is worth from the outset, and you should be very critical of any lawyer that pretends they can. Every claim is different and the outcome for every claim will depend on a number of factors such as the severity of injuries received, the age of the person, whether the person can no longer work, whether prior to injury they were earning $100 per week or $10,000 per week.
It is possible for your lawyer to advise you of the type of entitlements, or as we lawyers call it, “damages”, you are able to claim if you have been injured in a medical negligence claim. The entitlements or damages you are able to claim for Medical Negligence are:
- Compensation for Medical and Hospital Expenses,
- Compensation for Past Loss of wages,
- Compensation for Future Loss of wages,
- Compensation for Pain and Suffering,
- Compensation for Assistance with Domestic Needs (whether paid or unpaid).
Whether or not you are entitled to one or all of the above heads of damages will depend on the causal link between the injury you have suffered and the effects of that injury on, for example, your ability/inability to work, need for domestic care and assistance etc. Medical negligence claims are extremely diverse. You should be wary of anyone who promises a specific amount. Damages in the form of compensation are always determined on a case by case and depending on the circumstances of the individual person or persons.
