Medical Negligence Compensation Claims – How We Help
Have you suffered because of negligence at the hands of a medical practitioner or medical institution?

While we all rely on the medical industry to provide the best possible healthcare, sometimes mistakes happen. Often this is due to negligence.

Medical practitioners and institutions (such as hospitals, medical centres, nursing homes) have to provide the highest standard of care that they can.

If you suffer an injury because a medical practitioner or institution has failed to provide that standard of care, you may be entitled to compensation payable by the insurer of that practitioner or institution.

Claims like this aren’t always easy to make, as it is up to you to prove that there was negligence. But that’s where we can help. If you want to seek compensation for medical negligence, call us at Gajic Lawyers today on (02) 9890 5885.

What is covered in medical negligence compensation claims?

All medical practitioners and healthcare providers are covered by professional indemnity insurance, in case a patient or client lodges a negligence claim.

You can receive compensation if you can show that a medical practitioner or healthcare provider failed in their duty of care and adversely affected your life. This could have happened in several ways:

  • Misdiagnosis – wrongly identifying your disease or condition
  • Failure to warn – not telling you about the effects of your condition or treatment
  • Failure to provide appropriate treatment
  • Surgical errors
  • Anaesthesia errors
  • Defective products (such as use of non-sterile surgical equipment)
  • Errors during pregnancy and child birth
  • Incorrect prescription or dosage of medication

You may be entitled to damages for:

  • Past and future medical expenses for treatment arising out of the negligence
  • General damages for pain and suffering
  • Loss of earnings (past and future)
  • Past and future domestic assistance and personal care provided by family members
  • Rehabilitation and other costs (wheelchairs, modifications to your home, etc.)

If you have suffered as a result of negligence by a medical practitioner or healthcare provider, we are ready to help you make your compensation claim. Call Gajic Lawyers on (02) 9890 5885.

What should I do if I think I am entitled to make a claim?

2

It is important to remember that in cases like yours, it is up to you to show that the medical practitioner or healthcare provider was negligent. They and their insurance company only have to respond to your claim. This makes it very important to collect as much evidence as possible and to keep detailed records. To prepare for your claim in the best way possible, you should:

  • Seek a second medical opinion about your condition
  • Consult us here at Gajic Lawyers as soon as you can
  • Photograph or document any physical damage or illness you have/are suffering
  • Get the contact details of any witnesses
  • Keep copies of medical records, X-rays and scans relating to the incident
  • Keep copies of receipts for any of your expenses
  • Record your recollection of discussion and consultations with the practitioner or other healthcare provider

Will I need to see an independent medical specialist?

3
Yes, you will need to see independent medical experts, who will act on our behalf and also on behalf of the insurer, to report on your medical condition and to provide an expert opinion as to whether or not the first medical practitioner has failed in their duty of care.
