Do You Have a Case for Hospital Negligence?

Published by Marshall & Gibson Lawyers on the 16 August 2016

If you’ve come out of a recent hospital stay and feel that you may have injuries or damage caused by medical negligence by your doctor or medical staff, you may be feeling lost and confused. It’s hard to know what steps to take if your life has just been turned upside down.

In order to make a claim in Australia you will need to provide proof that there was a duty of care (that is, Duty of Care), that the medical professional at the hospital has breached that duty of care (Breach of Duty), that foreseeable injury has occurred (Damage) and that the medical professional’s breach of duty led to this injury (Causation). You may also be able to make a claim in the case that a loved one has passed away due to the negligence of medical professionals. Interpreting and providing these claim requirements can be daunting. Talking to the right Sydney medical negligence lawyers should give you a much clearer idea of whether you have a valid medical negligence case.
