What is a nervous shock claim?

Medical negligence nervous shock claims are brought by close family members of the victim of medical negligence who was either killed, injured or put in peril as a result of the negligence of a medical practitioner.

Members of the family who may be entitled to bring such a claim include:

  • A parent of the victim or other person with parental responsibility for the victim.
  • The spouse or partner of the victim.
  • A child or stepchild of the victim or any other person for whom the victim has parental responsibility.
  • A brother, sister, half-brother or half-sister, or stepbrother or stepsister of the victim.

These claims usually arise when the close family member suffers a recognisable psychiatric or psychological injury or illness, such as depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder.
