Find out where you stand.  Speak to our medical malpractice lawyers today.

Financial support may available where you have suffered an injury as a direct result of the treatment provided by a medical practitioner (i.e. general practitioner / doctor, surgeon, dentist) or an allied health professional.

Proving that your injury would not have occurred if you had been provided with a reasonable standard of care by an appropriately skilled practitioner requires expert analysis of the facts of your case.

This is why it is recommended that you speak with a medical malpractice lawyer as soon as reasonably practical after an injury.  This ensures that you are fully informed as to your eligibility, understand the information you will need to gather and steps you need to take in order to guarantee your compensation.

You may be entitled to:

  • Past and future medical and associated expenses, including for any help you need at home
  • Past and future loss of wages, including superannuation
  • Lump sum for your pain and suffering and loss of earnings
  • Dependency claims.

Strict time limits apply, so we encourage you to speak with our medical negligence lawyers today for information about how to make a claim and the entitlements you may be eligible for.
