Do I have a Medical Negligence claim and what is involved?

We can help protect your rights by providing advice regarding your claim for compensation.

A Medical Negligence claim may be valid when a health professional has failed to diagnose your illness or injury; treat you properly or fully inform you of the risks of your medical treatment?

Our first meeting is free so that you can assess whether or not you have a claim before incurring legal costs.

If you do have a claim, it is important to proceed quickly.

Even if your matter doesn’t go to Court (which many don’t), it can be time consuming to obtain reports and records about the negligence and about your current health. It is best to start this process as quickly as possible.

If the matter was to go to Court, proceedings must commence within 3 years of the injury.
