Medical Negligence
What is Medical Negligence or Medical Malpractice?

Medical negligence or medical malpractice occurs when a patient suffers harm, injury, loss or damage by a doctor, nurse, dentist, pharmacist, therapist or any other medical care provider who fails to competently perform his or her medical duties by providing improper, unskilled, or negligent treatment to a patient. Medical negligence can include a failure to diagnose, improper treatment, and failure to warn a patient of known risks. Relying on vicarious liability or direct corporate negligence, claims may also be brought against hospitals, clinics, managed care organizations or medical corporations for the mistakes of their employees.

Our specialist medical negligence lawyers have successfully represented clients who have sustained injury as a result of sub-standard medical treatment on a wide variety of cases, to include claims involving birth injury, brain damage, cerebral palsy, general surgery, orthopaedic injury, spinal injury, pressure sores, infection, meningitis and other infectious diseases, misdiagnosis and late diagnosis of cancer, visual impairment and hearing loss, gynaecology, urology, dentistry, inquests and treatment or lack of treatment of the elderly and children.

Our specialist medical negligence lawyers will proactively and sympathetically progress your compensation claim and will listen to your practical concerns. There is a strong emphasis on securing early payments of damages wherever possible, either to fund much needed treatment or to give you a helping hand at a time when due to the limitations imposed by your injuries, you may be experiencing financial difficulties.
