Perth Medical Negligence Lawyers – WA Injury Compensation Claims

LAWYER HELPLINE: 1800 633 090

Our medical negligence lawyers have solicitors offices situated in Adelaide, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and Darwin.

Perth Medical Negligence Solicitors specialise in compensation claims involving medical error. If, as a result of medical treatment, you have suffered an injury or disability, you may be able to claim compensation. Health professionals such as doctors, dentists, nurses and midwives must take reasonable care when providing medical treatment, making a diagnosis, and providing information. This is a basic duty of care that is recognised under the common law and legislation in Western Australia. A breach in duty of care that results in damage to the patient can be remedied through compensation.

To determine whether you are able to claim compensation, a medical negligence lawyer will need to take a statement from you, review your medical records and obtain a medico-legal opinion from an independent medical expert. Once all relevant evidence is reviewed, a decision can be made as to whether court action will be needed. Most medical negligence claims settle out of court, however, a small handful of claims to go to trial each year.

To optimise your chances of succeeding in a compensation claim, it is best that your matter is handled by a specialist medical negligence solicitor, and not just any lawyer. Our Perth solicitors are experts in medical litigation and have acted on behalf of hundreds of patients who have been injured, as well as on behalf of families who have lost loved ones as a result of negligent hospital treatment.

If you would like obligation-free legal advice on how to claim medical negligence compensation, call our Perth solicitors or complete the online contact form. Do not delay in seeking legal advice, as time limits apply.

There are time limits within which Western Australia medical negligence lawyers should either settle claims or issue legal proceedings in a court of law. The purpose of these time limits is to bring finality to potential claims because memories fade, witnesses die or move away and documentation or records become lost or corrupted. Most limitation legislation is complex and difficult with numerous exceptions and exemptions and varying time limits dependent on the type of injury, the age and mental capacity of the claimant, the date that the injury was or should have been discovered and the behaviour of the potential defendant.

Failure to comply with these time limits can result in loss of the opportunity to claim compensation. Reference should always be made to a qualified solicitor to obtain information and advice on these time limits as soon as possible after the event giving rise to the potential claim. If you would like free specialist advice just complete the contact form and a no win no pay solicitor will telephone you with no charge and no obligation.
