Woman in Hospital Bed Suffering Illness Due to Medical Negligence

Injuries and illnesses caused by medical negligence often mean time off work, unplanned expenses, and financial stress. But your situation is unique, and your injury or illness may have led to other health issues and complications.

We’ll match you with a specialist medical negligence lawyer. We’ll build a personal relationship with you and your family to make sure we understand the true impact of your injury or illness, and we’ll look beyond the obvious to make sure you get more compensation.

Our medical negligence lawyers are here to help with your claim.

Medical negligence occurs when your medical professional’s behaviour doesn’t meet the appropriate standard of care, and you suffer injury or loss. Medical professionals generally have a ‘duty of care’ to take care of you, and if this duty is breached you may be entitled to medical negligence compensation.

Here are some examples of claims we can help with:

  • Medical expenses – resulting from your injuries.
  • Travel expenses – to and from medical appointments and treatment.
  • Domestic assistance – the cost of getting help with home duties.
  • Pain and suffering – an amount to compensate you for your pain and suffering, based on the extent of your injuries.
  • Future losses – for example, your future earnings that you will miss out on as a result of your injuries.

Shanelle's story

I didn't choose to seek compensation, I needed to

Former department manager and devoted mother, Shanelle, suffered a horrendous injury that dramatically changed her life but even more shocking was the harsh reaction from parts of society that she was never prepared for.

We all had one thing in common

I had no income so I was pretty stuck

Financial hardship as a result of serious injury is not only devastating to the individual but also their family. These people have managed to come out the other side and we’re honoured to have helped them on their journey.

John's story

I didn't want to wake up the next day

A freak work accident suffered years ago completely altered the course of John’s life. He could no longer work, he lost his family, suffered financially and effectively lost the will to live.

Frequently asked questions.

A no win no fee medical negligence lawyer offers to run your case for you and only get paid when you win. If you choose the right lawyer, it’s an excellent option that allows you to pursue your claim without any risk, but it’s important to check the lawyer’s costs agreement to fully understand what’s covered. With some no win no fee lawyers you can still end up having to pay thousands of dollars in disbursements if your case is unsuccessful. This is because their no win no fee agreements cover their professional fees but not the costs they incur. At Law Partners, our no win no fee, no disbursements guarantee covers all our costs and disbursements as well as our professional fees, so you can pursue your claim with peace of mind.

Medical negligence claims are complex, so it’s important to get good advice and engage the services of a specialist medical negligence lawyer. Your lawyer will engage one or more medical experts who have experience in medical negligence to carry out assessments, review your medical records and provide a report detailing how your treatment was negligent.

We’ll manage this process for you, and we’ll cover the medical experts’ costs, so you won’t have to pay anything out of your own pocket.

If your medical negligence claim is denied by the insurer, we then commence proceedings to take the matter to mediation. It’s at this stage that most claims are resolved and a settlement (i.e. a medical negligence payout to you) is agreed upon. In the minority of cases where a settlement isn’t reached, we’ll advise you about taking your claim to court to pursue compensation.

In NSW, you must lodge your statement of claim within three years of the claim being discoverable. However, long-stop periods and considerations can be given to children and people with disabilities. If you’ve exceeded a time limitation, it may be possible for us to argue that the injury was not discoverable until a later date. You can speak with one of our specialist medical negligence lawyers to get advice on your situation.

Even if you’ve spoken to another lawyer and been told you don’t have a claim, you can call us for a second opinion. Our medical negligence lawyers have successfully pursued many claims that were rejected by other lawyers.
