Woman in Hospital Bed Suffering Illness Due to Medical Malpractice

Injuries and illnesses caused by medical malpractice 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 malpractice 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.

Your medical malpractice claim is in safe hands with Law Partners – Australia’s largest specialist personal injury firm.

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

Medical malpractice 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 malpractice compensation.

Here are some examples of claims we can help with:

Medical malpractice payouts range from tens of thousands of dollars to millions of dollars. Depending on the severity of your injuries, the total compensation amount can include:

  • Lost income – the amount of income you’ve lost through time off work.
  • 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

Shanelle's story

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

When department manager and devoted mother Shanelle was refused surgery for her injury, she turned to us for help.

“It was the best decision I’ve ever made. It’s just good to know that there are people out there who actually care that I’m injured. And that’s what Law Partners is about – they care.”

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.

Medical malpractice claims are complex, so it’s important to get good advice and engage the services of a specialist medical malpractice lawyer. Your lawyer will engage one or more medical experts who have experience in medical malpractice 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 malpractice claim is denied by the insurer, we’ll 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 malpractice 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.

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 malpractice lawyers have successfully pursued many claims that were rejected by other lawyers.

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 malpractice lawyers to get advice on your situation.
