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. To have a successful legal claim, you will have to show that your medical treatment amounts to medical negligence.
Proving the doctor or other healthcare professional has been negligent as a matter of law is complicated. 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.
