Medical Negligence*


Medical negligence arises where the care provided by a Doctor or Health Provider falls short of the standard that would reasonably be expected in circumstances of the kind that have arisen. This would include the duty to consult fully with and explain to a patient the procedures, the hoped for result and the risks involved.

It is not always the case that a poor medical outcome is the result of negligence. Investigation of the difficulties that arise in practice can be difficult and time consuming. It is necessary not only to have an insight into the practical issues confronting medical staff but also into the administration and bureaucracy that is part and parcel of the delivery of medical services. Through our experience and the use of expert witnesses, we have developed practical skills which will assist our clients in identifying stateable cases of medical negligence and achieving the optimum results.

We will be happy to meet with you and review the circumstances of your case for the purpose of assessing whether a stateable case for negligence will arise.
