Introduction

Medical negligence is the area of legal practice that is concerned with acts or omission by a medical facility or practitioner that causes injury or harm to a person that is under their care.

In order for medical malpractice to be established, a court or tribunal must be satisfied that the act or omission fell below the accepted standard of practice in the medical community.

The area of medical negligence can include claims involving

  • Public and private hospitals
  • Doctors
  • General Practitioners (GPs)
  • Surgeons
  • Radiologists
  • Nurses
  • Dentists
  • Midwives
  • Pharmacists
  • Orthopaedic surgeons
  • Chiropractors
  • Physiotherapists

Legal practitioners who act in the area of medical negligence will generally specialise and;

  • act for persons who allege they suffered injury or harm
  • OR
  • act for the organisations and practitioners (and their insurers) who are claimed to have caused the harm.
