Medical negligence is a highly complex area of law. To get the best result you need a specialised and experienced medical negligence lawyer who can fight for the compensation you deserve.
At Stacks Goudkamp, we are highly experienced medical negligence compensation lawyers. We have a proven track record of winning difficult cases and achieving the best possible results for our clients.
Our specialised medical negligence team has over 40 years’ experience in medical negligence compensation claims. We have achieved outstanding results for the thousands of clients we have acted for in respect of their medical malpractice claims.
If you are suffering because of an error by a doctor, nurse, dentist, physiotherapist or other medical professionals, you may be a victim of medical negligence. This is essentially when a lack of proper care has negatively impacted you as a patient. In this situation, you may be entitled to compensation.
You may also be the victim of medical negligence if you have been treated with a medical implant or device, such as a replacement joint or pacemaker, that is defective.
Most medical negligence claims are not clear cut. The way we determine whether a person has a medical negligence claim is by conducting a thorough investigation. This investigation involves taking a detailed history from the person involved and any witnesses available. We then request a complete copy of their medical records. Once we have all the material we require, we analyse it carefully. We then qualify an independent like-trained expert to comment on whether they consider the standard of treatment and care provided to that person was acceptable.
If that expert is prepared to criticise the treatment or care as being below an acceptable standard, then it is only at that time that we can establish that a person actually has a medical negligence claim.
As can be seen, there are some circumstances in which a person can bring a claim for an injury which occurred more than 3 years ago. However, to determine whether this is possible requires a detailed understanding of your situation to help us advise you further.
Being injured as a result of a medical professional’s negligent treatment and care can be life changing. Unfortunately, it often results in permanent pain and suffering, ongoing treatment expenses, requirement for care and loss of income. Bringing a medical negligence claim is about your future financial security.
Although, compensation is unable to change what has happened to a victim of medical negligence, it can go a long way towards alleviating any financial stresses which people often find themselves in as a result of the injury they have suffered.
Being a victim of medical negligence can have a severe impact on your life and financial position. If you have been injured due to negligent medical treatment you may be entitled to claim compensation.
It is important to understand that compensation is awarded for the way you are worse off as a result of the medical negligence, and not just for the fact that negligence occurred. For this reason, Stacks Goudkamp will take the time to understand your circumstances before, and after the medical incident so that we can better craft your claim for compensation.
Once we truly understand your personal, family, and working circumstances we can maximise the compensation that you can claim under the various heads of damages that are available. In NSW damages for medical negligence claims are assessed under the Civil Liability Act 2002 (NSW).
