Medical Negligence

Medical negligence, also known as medical malpractice, is the area of law that can provide redress and compensation if you’ve been injured as a result of medical treatment that’s fallen short of acceptable standards. Our medical negligence lawyers can help.

Experienced and recognised medical negligence lawyers

Our medical negligence lawyers have extensive experience in all types of cases involving health services, public and private hospitals, doctors, surgeons, GPs, nurses, and other health professionals.

Some common medical negligence areas include:

  • misdiagnosing or delays in the diagnosis of a medical condition or disease
  • incorrectly reporting or failing to act on test results
  • failing to conduct surgery, testing, or other care competently (with appropriate care and skill)
  • providing unsuitable or inadequate post-operative care
  • failing to properly inform a patient of risks that occurred during their treatment or care
  • providing the wrong type or dose of a drug
  • incorrectly prescribing or monitoring medication
