Suffering due to medical negligence

If during a procedure, your treatment fell below an acceptable standard, you may have grounds to bring a medical negligence claim. Medical compensation claims are often regarded as some of the most challenging cases to win due to the difficulty of proving negligence. In fact, many sufferers do not get the chance to pursue damages as most personal injury lawyers refuse to represent them. However, practitioners who specialise in medical law often achieve successful outcomes.

Injured and have insurance cover

Many Australians have insurance policies hidden away that they don’t even know about. In fact, nearly everyone who contributes regularly to their superannuation has some sort of policy. If you do have insurance and you have suffered an injury which inhibits your capacity to work, you might be able to claim through your insurance. You may also be able to claim if you have already received compensation such as road accident or workers compensation.

Either way, please understand that they will not have to pay your compensation personally, an insurance company will be the ones who compensate you.

3. Discuss your case with one of our personal injury solicitors.

Our lawyers will need to ask you some questions about your experience to establish whether or not you’re potential claim has merit. If they find that your case has a good chance of succeeding they will offer you a free face to tace consultation to discuss things in greater detail. However, first of all, they will need to know;

  • Where why and when your accident took place;
  • what type of accident you have been involved in;
  • The extent of any injuries you sustained as a result;
  • who or what do you think caused your accident;
  • and details of losses incurred as a result of your injury

Once they have this information they discuss how the injury has affected you and what you’re likely to achieve. They will also discuss all the nitty-gritty parts

After this, they’ll talk you through the next steps.

4. Your lawyer submits your claim.

If you’ve decided to proceed with a claim, your Lawyer will notify whoever was to blame for causing your injury, with details about your claim.

A letter will be sent to the at-fault party, whether that be a business, person or insurance company advising of your intent to claim. They will have a fixed period in which they need to respond to either accepting or denying liability.

If they deny liability, your lawyer will then put together all the evidence you have provided to support your case.

5. Your claim progresses.

Your lawyer will handle all the contact and negotiations with the third party on your behalf. They will also keep you fully informed throughout the whole claims process.

If an offer is made, your lawyer will advise on whether it is best to accept or reject this (sometimes the at-fault party will offer less than you deserve).

Luckily, most cases are settled without going to court. If, however, your case cannot be settled out of court, your lawyer will be a guiding hand, helping you through the process.

6. Your claim is settled.

If your claim is successful, you will receive all the compensation you’re owed. Any legal costs will have been discussed during your initial consultation, the already agreed upon fees will be deducted from your settlement.

If for some reason your claim is unsuccessful you won’t need to pay any fees because of our No Win No Fuss guarantee.
