Frequently Asked Questions

Our most commonly asked questions about Medical Negligence

Medical negligence or malpractice occurs when a medical practitioner, health professional or health facility fails in their duty of care or fails to take reasonable care, causing you an injury, physical or psychological, as a result.

A lawyer can advise you of your legal rights and whether you have a viable claim.

If you have been injured as a result of any medical treatment or procedures including obstetrics, orthopaedics, dental, general surgery, radiology, anaesthesia, chiropractic, cancer or plastic and cosmetic surgery it is a good idea to seek legal advice as soon as you can as it is not always obvious if you do have a claim.

The first meeting will be with a Partner and/or lawyer who will work closely with the partner on your file. The Partner has the ultimate responsibility for your matter.

During this meeting you will be asked to provide a summary of the injury, how it was sustained and other relevant information. Preliminary advice might be provided about your rights and options at this stage. Participating in this process does not commit you to any course of action. The first meeting is no obligation, it is simply to exchange information and give preliminary advice.

We will also tell you if you do not have a case. That way you can move on and put the matter behind you, or seek a second opinion.
