Medical Negligence claims
At Gerard Malouf & Partners we know exactly what is required to be successful in a claim for medical negligence. If you believe you have been the victim of medical negligence, then you need to talk to our expert medical negligence lawyers.
In Australia medical practitioners have a duty of care towards their patients. A breach of that duty of care, can occur in a variety of circumstances from a failure to warn a patient of the dangers involved in surgery, to a failure to correctly diagnose an illness. If it is found that there has been a breach of this duty of care, and as a result of this breach you have sustained an injury, then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation for your injuries. These types of claims are referred to as medical negligence claims.
In successful medical negligence claims you may be entitled to the following compensation for your injuries:
- Compensation for economic loss such as loss of wages and superannuation.
- Compensation for the costs of past and future care that you have needed as a result of your injuries.
- Compensation for non-economic loss including pain and suffering in the event that your injuries are found to be at least 15% of a most extreme case.
