If you believe that you have received substandard medical treatment due to the negligent actions
and/or inactions of a medical practitioner, this may come under a general hospital negligence
claim. Such claims can be against doctors, nurses, radiologists, technicians and administrators.
Hospital negligence can arise in many forms although it can cause catastrophic injuries and the
effects can be lifelong. A few examples of hospital negligence include:
- Failure to diagnose and/or misdiagnosis of the injuries;
- Failure to refer a patient for further treatment;
- Delay in diagnosing and/or treating the injury;
- Error in administering prescriptions/medication;
- Failing to carry out a procedure properly;
- Failure to obtain informed consent in respect of elective surgeries; and
- Poor aftercare following a procedure/operation.
In any hospital negligence claim, the patient must prove that the medical practitioner was
negligent. This occurs after instructing solicitors and when the appropriate medical experts are
appointed. Please contact us to discuss your case and we can provide you with a step by step
