For a medical negligence claim to succeed in court, it must be proved that the poor medical outcome was caused by the negligence of the health care provider in falling below the expected standard of care. Establishing medical negligence often requires a complex analysis of medical and legal issues.

The Wrongs Act, has divisions dealing with duty of care, causation, awareness of risk, negligence of professionals and persons professing particular skills (division 5), non-delegable duties and vicarious liability, and contributory negligence. These sections must be read and interpreted in conjunction with the common law.

If a professional has breached their duty of care and this has resulted in damage to the patient, the patient can claim compensation for loss of income, medical and pharmaceutical expenses, and other out-of-pocket expenses.

Strict time limits apply when claiming compensation. Therefore you should not delay in seeking legal advice. Failure to lodge a claim in time, may result in you losing out on potential compensation.

A similar duty of care applies to other health care professionals such as nurses, midwives, dentists, physiotherapists and chiropractors.

Limitation on the time in which Victoria medical negligence solicitors must bring proceedings is usually three years from the date of the negligence that gives rise to the action or three years from the date that the potential claimant knew or should have known about the injury, however there are certain exceptions to this general rule.
