Medical Negligence Claims
If you or someone you care for has been injured due to poor medical treatment and care, compensation may be available.
These claims are commonly referred to as "medical negligence," also referred to as medical malpractice.
The care you receive from a medical practitioner, nurse, hospital, dentist, pharmacist or other health professional must be at a high-standard, given the adverse implications to your health and well-being if it is not.
Medical negligence occurs when that treatment provided by your health care professional falls short of being considered and appropriate standard of care and causes an injury or an adverse impact on your health.
The medical negligence legal process in Queensland is very complex and requires often legal help from a lawyer who specialises in just this area of law.
Strict time limits apply.
